My guess is that he's a little unsettled in the new house. North Andover is a lot quieter than East Boston. New sights, sounds, smells, etc. My suggestion is that you might buy an ergo baby carrier (you can wear it like a front or backpack), and just carry him around in that while you do some housework. I'd be willing to bet that once he gets used to the routine and knows where you are in the new house that he'll settle down again. It might take a little while, but it might help him with the transition.
Another thought is that he might want to snack. We've found that our 11-month old is interested in eating almost constantly. We keep a stash of cheerios in a plastic container in the living room to feed her when she starts getting fussy, and it seems to quiet her instantly.
