According to their son, Stuart McCormick, "They started out with a typical story & a half ranch-style plan torn from the back of Progressive Farmer magazine and asked my second cousin, Warren McCormick, a student at NCSU School of Design at the time, to do some modifications. As the idealistic design student, Warren convinced them they did not want that plan / style after all and directed them to look at some recently constructed contemporary houses in Raleigh / Chapel Hill. Whatever he did worked and my parents embarked on designing a completely original house for them. My father cut pines from our family land and hauled them to the sawmill where they were sawn into actual 2x framing lumber. He constructed a pole barn on the edge of the property to store and air dry the lumber for a year prior to construction. He also cut cypress from the swamps on the land for the random width board and batten cladding. The screen porch / carport wing extending out the rear, originally had a flat roof, but he changed it to a matching hipped roof when he re-roofed the house circa 1984. At the time of design I was 8-10 years old and I remember attending the design meeting with my parents and seeing my cousin sketch as well as helping out with construction."
