CM Black Builds Residence for Brain Injury Survivors

CM Black Builds Residence for Brain Injury Survivors

In 2012, CM Black completed a full-time, group residence for the non-profit organization, Hinds’ Feet Farm, which is dedicated to providing therapeutic and rehabilitation services to individuals living with traumatic brain injuries.

The mountain-style retreat, located in Huntersville, is fully handicapped-accessible, and provides a home for up to six individuals, where they will be able to receive round-the-clock care.

The residence, dubbed “Puddin’s Place”, combines technical design and functionality with rustic, personal features, including the use of recycled wood, donated materials and antique beams.

“Hinds’ Feet Farm is proud to have partnered with CM Black for this important project,” says the non-profit’s Executive Director, Marty Foil. “We selected CM Black due to our long standing relationship, their passion for quality, attention to detail and professional ethics.
