Renovation SOS: Respectful Rehabilitation of Your Old House

with David Muylle, Muyelle Enterprises
You can restore and renovate your old house without turning it into a museum. In this workshop, an experienced contractor will teach you how to renovate your own historic home–retaining its timeless beauty and keeping it true to its character—yet make it still livable for the twenty-first century.

Refunds will not be issued for cancellations less than one week before each workshop. Your registration fee can be transferred to another workshop in the series within one year of the date of your original workshop registration.
