Edifice Rex, a 300 square foot studio apartment, is only one mile and less than 2 minutes from Interstate 81 yet offers a very bucolic, peaceful setting.
Countless cultural, historical and recreational opportunities exist within a 30 mile radius. The James River and Appalachian Trail are but minutes away.
The name, "Edifice Rex" is to honor the caretaker on the property, a German Shepard named Rex. You will not have to interact with him ( he wears a radio collar) but he welcomes attention.

The space
The space was created with old materials and the intention to please those that want a space to comfort the heart and amuse the eye. The pine floors were salvaged from an old building on the property, same for the wainscoting. The headboard for the bed is an ancient pine mantel piece from a neighboring log cabin that is now, sadly, no more. Many of the tables were hand made by the host using old pine flooring and plumbing pipe. The interior doors were also harvested from an old building and the "wall art" includes an old wooden shutter that was originally on the cabin building before it was restored. "The Crimpster" , the character that protects the space from it's perch over the headboard came to life from a metal tool that was once used to crimp tin roofs back in the day. Old stuff put to use again awaiting the next traveler.

Guest access
Edifice Rex has a private entrance.

I am a jack of all trades and the master of a few. I started and ran a retail business for a number of years and was the general contractor for the restoration of a number of older homes ( which includes my current residence, a log cabin built in 1869). Never one to let a passion be ignored, I am currently a film/television actor working as far north as Pittsburgh Pa and as far south as Atlanta GA. I have died no less than 8 times on camera but don't let that discourage you. I am still available for your questions and am committed to making your stay as pleasant as possible. My interest in travel began when I was 16 years old and I "ran away from home" with a buddy, hitchhiking around the country. Adventures followed and stories were born. May your days always be full of both.
