CityViewNC .com | 17 the passing on of the original, decades-old keepsake house plans - the Stevicks began extensive renovations to the house to get the bed and breakfast up and operating again. Katy Stevick grew up in Fredericksburg, a small town in Central Texas known for its old-world charm, wineries and hundreds of bed and breakfasts. Her parents, Tina and Tull Johnson, are the owners of Fredericksburg's e Mulberry House "My parents met on a construction site," Katy said. "ey taught me everything I know about construction and restoration." e Johnsons traveled to Fayetteville to pitch in as work got underway at e MacPherson House. Katy's father rewired the delicate, original antique light fixtures on the first floor. A clawfoot tub in the downstairs bedroom, original to the house, was lovingly restored by Katy's mother. "It has a 1926 stamp on the bottom," Katy said. Meanwhile, before he deployed in June, Michael Stevick managed to check off an impressive list of projects the way some people check items off a grocery list. Among those projects was the task of digging out a retaining wall on the side of the home. e newly revealed wall enabled the construction of a sturdy and lovely flight of concrete steps that lead visitors from the parking area to the inviting front porch.
