Foothills Brewing’s Footnotes Space Complete

Wilson-Covington Construction Company has completed the Footnotes Cafe and Event Space for Foothills Brewing in Winston-Salem. This newest addition to the Foothills lineup will serve as a cafe during the day serving coffee and light fare as well as serving Foothill’s own beer. It will also be available for weddings and other private events.

Wilson-Covington successfully adapted this historic building including structural work, concrete work, all new plumbing, electrical, and mechanical systems and finishes to serve as an exciting new venue in downtown Winston-Salem, NC. By means of a lift the space was connected to the neighboring Foothills Brewpub and Restaurant allowing the kitchen in that space to serve both facilities.

Decorative Plaster Move

Wilson-Covington is currently doing a whole-house remodel and restoration of a 1929 home in Winston-Salem, NC. This project includes adding a residential elevator to access three floors. In order to make room for the elevator shaft a wall in the main hall had to be moved approximately 2′. This required moving a piece of decorative plaster crownmolding almost 90 years old. Wilson-Covington carpenters carefully removed this piece, framed new wall, and replaced.

Historic West End Modern Addition

Wilson-Covington Construction Company is in progress on a modern addition to a  1925 home in the Historic West End Neighborhood of Winston-Salem, NC. This project was first brought to Wilson-Covington by the owners as a way to expand the living space on the main floor of the home and to better experience the beautiful backyard and views from the rear of the home. An existing enclosed porch has been expanded to create a large living space with a great view out the rear of the space. Wilson-Covington has handled this project as a design-build project with the initial concept drawings being produced by the firm as 3-dimensional renderings. An architect was then involved after the owners approved the initial budget. Wilson-Covington has overseen approval by the Historic Resources Commission, all design changes, and all finish choices. This type of project highlights the experience Wilson-Covington brings to any residential project and alleviates any stress on the owner.

The exterior of the addition is nearing completion with gorgeous ipe siding being installed with a concealed clip system. Ipe decking and cable rails will complete the deck.

Wilson-Covington is nearing completion of the foundation installation under the 1814/1850 Salt-Flax House in Old Salem, Winston-Salem, NC. This project is a complete restoration of the home to the 1850 configuration to be used as a personal residence. The house has been temporarily shored, the basement dug out approximately 2′, and a new CMU foundation wall laid underneath on a footing. This wall will be filled solid and waterproofed on the outside. This will allow for structural stability and for the owner to finish the basement to be a mechanical room, office, scullery, kitchen/dining area, and powder room.
