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.

Custom Bathroom Vanities

Wilson-Covington customized one piece of furniture and fabricated once custom vanity for a bathroom and powder room remodel in Winston-Salem, NC. This 1890 house in Old Salem, Winston-Salem, NC required a special touch to keep with the historic nature of the home while providing functionality for the spaces.

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.
