Educational Series


Historic Homes were built by hand and meant to last forever. Their features did not have “lifespans” and they could always be repaired. Sadly, we have forgotten how to inexpensively repair and refinish our own homes. Join us to learn how to repair and refinish your home while saving money and a precious material from the landfill.
