Did You Know?

The City of Kalamazoo and the Michigan Historic Preservation Network received Certified Local Government grants to train contractors and homeowners in the rehabilitation of wood windows. As part of the project an instructional video, “Simple Steps to Working Windows,” was made. The video has been posted in five parts on YouTube. It is also available on DVD. Check it out!

    Thank you for sharing this information about the Michigan Historic Preservation Network. Since developing this program we have gone on to teach a number of additional workshops around Michigan, including shorter sessions geared specifically to homeowners. The most recent workshop was carried out on our own building, the Thelma Joyce VanOsteen Comfort Station in Old Town, Lansing. This is our first building, and we are proud to be putting our money where our hearts lie! You can learn more about this project by visiting our website: http://www.mhpn.org/?page_id=904

      Awesome! Thank you so much for your comment and for continuing to educate homeowners and contractors. The more people know and the more resources available, the easier it is for them to make good choices in caring for their historic properties. I love it! And your project is so cool! Thanks for the link!
