About The House
Aberdeen Physical Therapy, LLC is located in the David Knight House a Historical Register Home. The David Knight house was built in 1896. It has been a family home, a home with a blacksmith shop behind it, a storage area and then a home prior to being put up for sale in 2009. Prior to the home being sold it had remained in the David Knight family. In order for the house to be up-fitted for use as a physical therapy clinic, multiple criteria had to be met such as ADA, Medicare, Aberdeen fire, town and building requirements including approval from the Historical Society. We were also personally committed to completing the work using local goods and services, rehabilitating the property to be consistent with its age and keeping a small carbon footprint.
Although we originally intended to preserve the house we found too much damage such as termite, water and wear on the floors. As a result, the house was gutted from the inside and rebuilt, rewired and insulated.
The hard wood heart pine floors in the building came from a family sawmill in Siler City called Wrenn Hardwoods. Some of the ceilings were replaced with bead board. Three of the sinks in the building were hand thrown pottery from Morrow Pottery, Pittsboro NC, Rays Pottery and Great White Oak Pottery from Seagrove NC . The paint is all environmentally friendly low VOC Benjamin Moore paint from Aberdeen Paint( company no longer in existence). The carpeting in the gym was installed by JB Short, who gave us great input on how we should prepare our floors prior to installation. The plan for our lighting was done by Dominic at A Light Source in Aberdeen. The fabric for our office was from Renee's, also in Aberdeen.
Our gratitude list is individuals who helped us put our house in order!
