2004 - The Eleanor Reuer Residence, 113 Hillcrest Road, Raleigh NC. Reuer designed and built this for his mom. After his dad died in 2002, his mom decided to sell their house and build on her empty lot next door. According to the News and Observer, "at the back of the house are the garage and studio, where she does painting, printmaking and sculpture. A separate apartment sits above the studio. Three bedrooms and two baths are upstairs. Those rooms are currently used for storage and for visiting family and guests. The flooring downstairs is stained concrete with radiant heat."
