To show her father he means the world to her, Maggie Hardy Magerko designed a piece of it with him in mind. Joe Hardy previously lived in the home located on the grounds of Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, which the family owns and developed. Hardy Magerko initially planned to transform the residence into a corporate retreat space. “As the project progressed, I really became attached to what we were doing there and felt like, ‘Wow, this could really be an amazing home again for [the family],’” says Hardy Magerko, 50, president of 84 Lumber, the company her father founded. “A few months before the project was scheduled to be completed, I decided to complete the renovation as a surprise for my dad.” She managed to keep her intentions secret and presented Hardy with the gift on Father’s Day 2015. Since then, the home has been the center for many treasured gatherings.
