The Weymouth Veteran’s Home property is located at 741 Main Street in Weymouth. The property is a single, two story building that will consist of 6 single room occupancy (SRO) units (each with a small kitchenette), a community room with a full kitchen, a laundry closet, common restrooms, and one office.
Construction began in August 2016 with the demolition of the existing single family home that was on the property. All appliances, and lighting are Energy Star rated and the building will utilize high efficiency components, such as the heating and cooling units, to ensure that no energy will be wasted, and that the tenants will have a comfortable living environment.
