Renewing the Rustic Charm: Q&A Associates Unveils Cabin Mountain’s Renovations
Some exciting renovations have happened at Cabin Mountain Living Center over the summer. The residents are enjoying the updated living spaces, and they were able to help with the entire process.
At Cabin Mountain, gender-specific housing spaces are provided with either single or double bedrooms or two-bedroom apartments attached to the main living center. So far, one of the apartments has been completely transformed – new flooring throughout, a brand-new kitchen, and a fresh coat of paint. The clients living in the apartment had the opportunity to be hands-on in the renovation process, learning new skills like how to install flooring and hang kitchen cabinets.
“It was special to see the clients take pride in their space and want to be involved in the process,” said Scott Huffman, Director of Cabin Mountain.
In the main Cabin Mountain building, three additional single bedrooms have been established on the top floor, along with a semi-private seating and gathering area. The wide plank hardwood floors are being restored to their original beauty.
“Since these buildings are on the National Registry of Historic Places, all renovations and upgrades must be made within the original footprint,” said Keith Bishop, COO of Q&A Associates, “So we have become creative to give our clients more space and more modern amenities.”
“We are grateful to be able to provide a variety of unique opportunities for our clients at Cabin Mountain while continuing to help them feel more at home,” said Angie Shockley, Founder and CEO of Q&A Associates.
Cabin Mountain is nestled on an 11-acre farm along the Dry Fork River in Harman, West Virginia. The building was built in the early 1950s, and the entire property has been listed on the Registry of Historic Places in West Virginia. Overall, clients at Cabin Mountain are looking forward to continuing to help with the renovations and are excited to see the outcome.
