Per the Durham County Inventory:

Carpenter Paul Pickett constructed a late Triple-A cottage in 1923, giving it sidelights that flank the entry door, rear chimneys, and a Craftsman-style shed porch with box columns on brick piers that resemble those of bungalows in the vicinity. A son, Buck, enlarged the dwelling in 1938, 1948, and 1971, eventually adding seven rooms that encompassed a rear ell and its porch. North of the dwelling, a smokehouse was constructed in the 1920s and a garage around 1940.
