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.
Wilson-Covington has completed work on the upfit of a portion of Foothill’s production brewing facility in Winston-Salem, NC to serve as the firm’s first tasting room. This complements their brew pub and restaurant in downtown Winston-Salem.
