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.
