Everingham has built a wrought iron structure out of iron beams and a concrete slab.
The structure is about 6 feet (1.4 meters) tall and stands about 25 feet (7 meters) long.
It was the work of a single man who began building the trellised structures nearly 100 years ago.
The structure, a structure of wood, steel, and concrete, has been a part of Everingham’s family for over two generations.
He says he started the project to give his kids a good example of how to construct a structure.
“My wife and I wanted to build something with our family, and I started with the foundation, and that’s how I got my name,” said Chris Everingham.
Everingham was born in North Carolina and is a lifelong resident of the state.
He started the trelism project in the early 1980s.
“It was something that we wanted to do.
We wanted to make a positive contribution to the community, and we wanted our children to be able to build a structure,” he said.
The family of five built the structure with a single beam of wood and concrete in their backyard.
“I built the whole thing from the ground up,” said Steve Everingham, Chris’ father.
The house is about a mile (1 kilometer) from the Everinghams home in Northville, North Carolina.
Everings son, Sean, was one of the first students to build the structure.
He said he was always amazed by how the structure looked.
“You see how it’s made from two beams, one going straight down the center of the structure and the other going up the center.
So it’s kind of a curved shape,” he explained.
The Everingham family has built several structures over the years.
The oldest was in the 1960s.
“We’re building this one right now, and it’s almost 50 years old,” said Sean.
“I think that’s the best one I’ve built.”
Everingham said he wanted the project because he wants his children to learn to build structures that will be able someday to replace the old school bus that’s parked on the lake.
