Building: Single Brothers' House (Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, North Carolina)

Architectural note:
The home features many elements of traditional Germanic construction, such as the kicked eave, the tile roof, and the double-leaf doors. The log workshop to rear of the house was constructed in 1771 and reconstructed in 1979. The house was restored in 1964. The dwelling is considered one of the finest examples of fachwerk, or half-timber construction, in the United States.
Historical note:
The building originally housed single men aged fourteen and older, as well as workshops. The structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and as a National Historical Landmark.
