The first project Zurbuch Construction was contracted to complete was a 550-square foot screened porch. Start to finish, it took less than two months, with a small crew.
While that may be a humble beginning, the experience paid off later when Dave and the team were hired to renovate the screened porch for a house in Durham, locally referred to as “the Bull Durham House.” Located at 911 Mangum Street, it was the home of Annie Savoy, played by Susan Sarandon, in Ron Shelton’s movie “Bull Durham,” also starring Kevin Costner. The homeowners hired Zurbuch to complete the work on what is more commonly known as the James Manning House, a Queen Anne Victorian built in 1880. It is currently listed with the Durham Historic Preservation Commission.
Over the years, projects have included room additions, garages, outdoor spaces, room remodels and renovations, as well as structural repairs. The largest project Zurbuch Construction has done is a whole house renovation.
