Wilson-Covington continues restoration of the 1814 Salt-Flax shop and home in Old Salem, Winston-Salem, NC. Currently work is under way to shore the framing of the home and dig out the front three foundation walls. This will allow for installation of modern CMU walls that can be waterproofed, allowing for living space under the front shop of the structure. The existing stone and brick foundations were structurally failing. Original material will be used where visible to show visitors and guests the construction of the home while allowing for 21st century amenities in the basement.

Other work in progress includes framing repair and replacement on the main level of the home and roof replacement. The roof will be re-roofed with pressure treated pine shakes to mimic the original wood shakes.
