Hands on History – DIY Preservation

Reminder – Hands On History
D.I.Y Preservation

Saturday, February 8, 2014

Do It Yourself Preservation is designed for people who live or work in an older building and would like to do some maintenance work themselves, but just don’t know where to start. It’s okay if you don’t know anything about tools, terms, or how things work, that is what this workshop is for! Along the way we will discuss simple things like screws, nails, basic power tools, and many more. We will discuss as many of the following topics as possible!

*    Windows
*    Removing and replacing trim
*    Stripping Wood
*    Sanding and Scraping
*    Simple painting
*    Doors
*    Mold

Led by architect Gary Kleier, with 35 years of experience, and specialties in historic renovation, restoration and applying green concepts in historic structures, Kleier is sure to help those dealing with rehabilitation issues in a historic home who are interested in achieving environmentally friendly results in the most cost efficient manner.

Workshop: Saturday, February 8th
Time: 1:00pm – 4:00pm
