A blog about the restoration of a wonderfully unusual house in Durham's Cleveland+Holloway neighborhood.

After the structure fell to
the ground, we took it apart and organized all the pieces in the yard. We then spent a couple of months completing the duplex on Queen. The
house has been rebuilt from those pieces. A lot of new materials were required.
The framing, for example, had to be all-new due to extensive damage. Siding and
a number of architectural elements were used again. The experience has been
most humbling for me. I have learned valuable lessons that I may not have
learned any other way.
