Welcome to Augustus Construction!

We’re here because we think this is one of the most beautiful places on earth. The Outer Cape rests on a glacial moraine laid down during the last Ice Age, 25,000 years ago. The glacier gouged out the many fresh water ponds and kettle holes which have made good swimming, boating and fishing for generations of Cape Codders and visitors. The high dunes, wide stretches of green salt marshes, streams, rivers, islands, and natural harbors, the woods of pine and oak, beach roses and wild blueberries, the sound of the wind and sea, all offer a restorative return to nature. Oysters, quahogs, lobsters, and scallops, stripers fluke and bluefish feed us as they did native people for thousands of years. The towns and villages, with their mixture of independent and iconoclastic natives and adventuresome wash a shores, make for an accepting, welcoming community.
