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.

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.
