David Moresi, left, at his new offices in the Norad Mill. NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — David Moresi started flipping one house at a time nearly 20 years ago. That seems a bit far away now as Moresi & Associates moves into an expansive office space in his Norad Mill and now employees about 30 people.   The local developer hadn't planned on moving offices, or buying a 100,000-square-foot historic mill, or being engaged in a half-dozen (at least) different ventures ranging from restaurants to college housing.
