STOP Water Trickle

The NCModernist July Trickle Tour

Saturday, July 11, 2020, 8am to 8pm

What's a trickle tour?  It's where Modernist fans visit an unoccupied Modernist house at a trickle of the normal rate, dramatically reducing the number of people in the house.  There will be no more than 6 people are in the 4996sf house at the same time. That's more than 800 square feet per person!  Plus, there's greater flexibility in selecting a tour time and ticket price.  Choose your entry window from 8am through 8pm.  The house has not been occupied for two months.  Enjoy no-contact registration outside the house under the carport. All participants must wear a mask as will NCModernist staff and volunteers. 

The original house was built in 1971. David Arneson of Center Studio Architecture designed the 2019 renovation, featuring wood and terrazzo floors, Miele generation 20 appliances including a steam oven, a cappuccino maker, and electric car charging.
