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.

Dalholt Family Joins Wilson-Covington

DalholtsWilson-Covington has always been a family-oriented company, but even we have taken it to a new level with the hiring of Norm Dalholt and his two sons, David and Thomas!

On April 1, 2013, David became the first Dalholt to join Wilson-Covington.  He had been working in custom cabinetry in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, but was looking for a better place to raise a family. A good friend in Winston-Salem knew Executive Vice President Hayes Wauford and connected the two. After an interview, David was hired as a superintendent.

Earlier this year, David and his wife Amber had a baby girl, Charlie. Norm, who was a project manager for a high-end residential contractor in Maine, came down for a visit with his first grandchild and liked what he saw of Winston-Salem. “I kept telling him he should move down here,” David said. “And he said, ‘Well, find me a job.’  So I did!” On August 3, 2014, Norm joined the company as project manager of residential construction.

Meanwhile, Thomas was working as a display builder for Urban Outfitters in Portland, Oregon and beginning to feel a little left out. “I was a long way away, and it had been two and a half years since I’d seen the family,” Thomas said. David once again asked Hayes if there might be a spot at Wilson-Covington for Thomas. Two weeks after his father had joined the company, Thomas came to work as a carpenter.

The three are currently working together on an extensive remodel of a home in the West Salem neighborhood. “Hayes is super family-oriented, but he’s getting his money’s worth as well,” David joked. “We don’t just punch a clock and go home. We talk about our work at night all the time, too.”

The Dalholts say good communication is the key to family members being able to work well together. “We’re able to be blunt with each other, and nobody takes it personally,” David said.
