Sash Mob! Windows Workshop
Join us May 19-21 for this awesome wood windows workshop weekend!
Heritage Ohio is partnering with Marsh Building Products, Habitat for Humanity Cincinnati, and Community Matters to teach window restoration while giving back to Lower Price Hill
They’re caked with paint, riddled with cracked glass, drafty, and they’ve been stuck shut longer than you’ve been alive. If we’ve described the window situation in your historic house, then it’s time to do something about it, and we don’t mean replace them. Heritage Ohio is excited to announce that we’re bringing old windows guru Jim Turner back to Ohio to help us conduct a #SashMob2017 in Cincinnati in May, and you’re invited.
This 3 day workshop series offers up to 20 AIA HSW continuing education credits in total!
The sessions taking place on Friday the 19th will be classroom style and cover everything you need to know about wood windows, including how you can make them more energy efficient without replacing them and how to be safe when dealing with the potential of lead paint. Considering a restoration project? Don’t miss Chick McBrien, Marvin Windows and Doors, talk about research, planning, window assessment, standards, and historic tax credits with concern to historic restoration projects.
We will have window restoration specialist and National Trust Advisor Jim Turner, of Turner Restoration, talk about window restoration and will be available at the end of the day for an “Ask an Expert” session. If you have old windows that you would like to get advice on or an expert’s opinion about, please bring your pictures and your information with you to this workshop and ask Jim! He can answer your questions about both wood and steel windows. If you don’t need expert advice than you can join us for a tour of the Community Matters complex and learn about the amazing projects and work that this organization has been able to do in the Lower Price Hill neighborhood.
Want to keep the networking going and have a good time? We will be hosting a happy hour in Cincinnati following the workshop on Friday. More details to come.
Saturday and Sunday Hands-On Workshop
If you’ve ever wanted to learn about making your old windows functional, energy efficient, or just more attractive; or, if you’re ready to tackle your own windows DIY project, but don’t know where to begin, then the weekend hands-on workshop is the answer for you! Over the course of two days May 20 and 21 you will learn about:
– the basics of window anatomy,
– freeing up you stuck windows,
– installing weather stripping,
– repairing weight ropes and chains,
– cutting and replacing glass, and
– re-glazing window sash.
Window restoration specialist and National Trust Advisor Jim Turner, of Turner Restoration, will lead the workshop.
Friday’s sessions and portions of the weekend workshop will take place at The Sanctuary at Community Matters. The majority of the weekend workshop will take place at two buildings nearby where we will be restoring windows on-site.
