Sold in 1983 to Eliot Roy Weintraub and Margaret Edwards Weintraub. According to Roy Weintraub, "Herb seemed to have been in charge of design; indeed, he made the building his work. He was one of those engineers who are always in error but never in doubt. I know for instance that he purchased the bricks from a destroyed warehouse in Greensboro and the wood from a farmhouse that was being torn down. It took him a few years to accumulate that kind of stuff. It was designed around the swimming pool since Betty had a degenerating spine and spent her time lying down. But the house was a wonder. From the Rube Goldberg plumbing system, which no plumber could fix, to the structural defects of a flat roof, to the absence of an entrance to the house except through the carport and swimming pool, to the crazy-making kitchen which was divided into essentially two rooms, to the fact that every bathroom had a door exit to the pool. The kitchen has since been remodeled. Sold in 1989 to Anthony B. and Marsha S. O'Hare. Sold in 1997 to Katherine Coleman Ballew and J. Hunter Ballew. Sold in 2006 to Emily Moseley and Robert J.

2005 - The Nathan Wieler and Ingrid Tung House, aka the area's first DWELL house, 196 Beech Hill (aka 3246 Hanks Chapel Road), Pittsboro NC. Designed by Joseph Tanney and Robert Luntz of R4A (Resolution 4 Architecture).  Sold in 2017 to Tracy L. and Eric R. Zothner.

The area's second DWELL house in Hillsborough NC, designed by Joel Turkel, is here.

Nathan Wieler and Ingrid Tung were frustrated with the limited options available in new and existing houses and shared them with DWELL magazine. In 2002, Wieler and DWELL initiated the Dwell Home Design Invitational, a 21st century version of the Case Study Houses program. The construction budget was to be $200,000 plus the land (bought for around $200,000) for a house on 9 acres. The design had to be prefab, so in order to move them by truck, sections could not be wider than 16 feet. Sixteen architects from the US and abroad were selected to submit designs.

In 2003, the Wielers selected Joseph Tanney and Robert Luntz of Resolution4 Architecture in New York. Module assembly began April 2004 at Carolina Building Systems in Salisbury, North Carolina. Soon the parts would be put together, and by July 2004, over 2000 people braved the searing summer heat during an open house. 

In December 2004, DWELL declared the competition a huge success. The Wielers were indeed the owners of a stunning new home, called "the most high-profile modern prefab house in America" by the Washington Post and credited by many writers as the spark in a new movement of modern prefab housing.

Yet getting to actual occupancy would take longer. It would not be until April 2005 that the Wielers moved in. The process had been far more expensive, time-consuming, and problematic than anyone had anticipated - and nowhere near $200,000.

Although the construction contract (excluding land, architect fees and site work) was initially for $206,000, it ran about $350,000.

That figure did not include corporate sponsors who provided everything from construction materials to appliances, adding another $200,000 at least. Windows, for instance, were provided by Loewen, a Canadian concern specializing in the luxury market. Trex provided the planks for all the decks.

Other sponsors include Artemide, Fisher & Paykel, Jenn-Air, Kohler, Lennox and Marmoleum. Raleigh architect Louis Cherry and Ann Marie Baum were involved with R4A and also provided interior design products and services, helped with public showings of the home and coordinated press photography.

 Total final cost: ball park of approximately $750,000 including land, construction, sponsor donations, architect fees, and site work.  But what a great house! 2340 sf inside, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, pulled together by 1,500 square feet of decks and upwards of 80 windows.

Wieler finished construction after firing the original contractor, Mount Vernon Homes, Inc., very close to completion. Just seven months later, in November 2005, Wieler put the home on the market. It finally sold in 2009, for much less than construction cost, to Sha Chang and Alfred Kleinhammes.  Sources include Nathan Wieler, Wieler, Washington Post, Archinect, New York Times.
