We were thrilled to help our friends at Hinds’ Feet Farm celebrate their newly built office at a ribbon cutting last month. This was a very rewarding project for a fantastic organization serving persons with brain injuries. Morris and Moffit served as General Contractor on the project in Huntersville, NC, which featured many unique, beautiful, hand-made elements.
Volunteers, members, and staff of Hinds’ Feet Farm contributed countless hours to forge balusters, create hand-made cabinet pulls from salvaged railroad spikes, and make custom light fixtures from reclaimed and sentimental family artifacts—the chandelier pictured below was created using a pot rack from the founder’s family home, and another from repurposed gate hinges.
Ninety percent of the lumber used in the project was salvaged or reclaimed—materials from Cone Mills plant in Greensboro, Tuscarora Yarns in China Grove, and a supporter’s old, deconstructed barn.
The office is decorated with family photos, antiques, and memorabilia. A special art installation features masks from the organization’s Unmasking Brain Injury project.
Below, Executive Director Martin Foil shares a video tour of the building as he prepares for the September 2019 Ribbon Cutting Celebration.
We are honored to have been a part of this thoughtful project and a supporter of this inspiring organization.
