130 Old Pittsboro Road, Carrboro NC

What's the most interesting house in Carrboro?  It's the 2020 Pierson-Choi House, designed by the owners. Built by NewPhire Building Company. Structural Engineer: Rob Munach, Excel Engineering. Photos by Charles Watson for Chapel Hill Magazine and Youn Choi. Featured in the Wall Street Journal, April 2020.  Doug Pierson and Youn Choi will be on hand to talk with you about their multi-year journey to design and build the house on an unusual lot.

What's a Trickle Tour? It's where Modernist fans visit a Modernist house at a trickle of the normal rate, dramatically reducing the number of people.  By using timed admission, there will only 6-8 people inside at any given time.  Plus there's greater flexibility in selecting a tour time and ticket price. Everyone must wear masks while onsite and maintain a minimum six-foot distance with event staff and other participants.


Tickets are just $9.95 per person, or $16.95 for a VIP anytime ticket.  There are also family ticket packs available.
