The Next BIG Thing

It’s been a long wait for our next house. After over a dozen auctions and several months of searching, we finally found our next adventure…and it’s a BIG ONE.

Jennifer and I recently closed on a beautiful 1910 historic home in Downtown Durham. We’ll refer to it as the Colclough House since William Colclough was the original owner.


Since closing a few weeks ago, we selected our General Contractor, a native of Durham who specializes in historic restoration. We also submitted the first part of the application to qualify this project for a national historic tax credit.  Stay tuned for a dedicated blog on that process.

We’ve got so much to share…so many fun details. For now, we’ll share a few photos of the Colclough House. We’ll post often with lots of pictures. Let us know what you think!
