In 2004 renovations were completed on the building for use as the Roger
A. Martin Sculpture Gallery. Though totally renovated the new design includes
the original heart pine floors, tin ceiling, interior doors and Frank
Lloyd Wright glass prism tiles.
On the second floor, yellow pine was used to repair the floors where
the walls were removed, highlighting the location of the original walls.
Many of the interior doors still retain their original finish as well
as the brass number from the second story boarding house. The clawfoot
bathtub in the gallery, now used as a planter, is the original tub from
the boarding house.
The architect on the renovation was Jim Asbel from Newport, Rhode Island.
The contractor was Lee Morgan and Associates of Charlotte, North Carolina
and the interior designer was Nancy Jo Fox, A.S.I.D., I.S.C.C., I.F.D.A.
of Albemarle, North Carolina.
