This 1840’s cabin in Forsyth County was originally owned by the 2nd president of RJR Tobacco Co. With nothing more than a bundle of red oak logs to work with, we built a new house that maintained both the original log cabin wood as well as its character. The house features custom made wood, stone and metal details made from raw materials sourced in North Carolina. We worked closely with the owners to ensure everything from the staircase to the fireplaces to the countertops stayed true to the original log cabin aesthetic.


We solved the first hurdle of finding a lot in Downtown Durham, and then worked closely with the Historic Preservation Commission to ensure the new home fit the neighborhood. After removing an old basement that was discovered while digging the foundation, we set to work building the new house with white oak floors, a true masonry fireplace, and a detached garage that complemented the home’s architecture.

Bahama New Construction

We set to work on this 60-acre parcel of farmland in northern Durham county to transform it into a country estate that incorporates working farmland – we even dug a pond on the property. The house includes details such an iron railing, extensive Trex decking, and an apartment above the garage.

Durham Craftsman New Construction

This house was the final one built in a mini development on Summit street near Downtown Durham. We included many custom features in the construction, such as satin brass plumbing fixtures, custom cabinetry and custom molding. The final house is a perfect fit for the surrounding architecture and maximizes the smaller lot.


We completely revitalized this 1900’s house in Trinity Park. Adding a full basement, making foundation repairs and waterproofing it entirely were just the beginning – we also added custom cabinets, refinished and repaired the original pine flooring, and removed the vinyl to expose the original pine siding.
