Save Money by Learning How to Keep Your Old House Warmer and More Energy Effi cient
(10 a.m. - 12 p.m.)

defining elements are removed from historic houses in the name of energy effi ciency, costing Canadians
billions of dollars and destroying the historic and valuable original fabric of the house. Most common
problems can be remedied for only a few dollars, all it takes is education to fi nd out how these houses
work and how to perform simple tasks to make them more livable in their original condition.
How to Repair Your Old Wood Windows

The most important element on your historic house is the character-defi ning wood windows. Each
design style in the 19th century celebrated a unique window design. This workshop will teach you how
to remove the window from its frame and restore the frame and sash using hig-tech epoxies for rotted
and deteriorated sections. Learn to remove old putty, strip the window of its paint, re-install glass and
re-putty. When you are fi nished this workshop, you will walk away understanding how important
