Are you a historic house enthusiast, a masonry aficionado, or someone with an interest and appreciation for preserving architectural history? Either way the Designer Craftsmen and Historic Home Show is a worthwhile event to check out.
The Historic Home Show is happening at the Valley Forge Convention Center March 8-10th. The Historic Home Show serves as a great educational resource for learning about restoring, renovating and preserving the nation’s architectural heritage.
We’re teaming up again this year with LimeWorks.US to offer a free ticket to a few lucky GreenPhilly readers!
LimeWorks.US owner Andrew deGruchy will present on Saturday March 9 at 12pm on Historic Masonry Dos and Don’ts. Here is a synopsis of his presentation: Often, stone and brick buildings that have been neglected are in better shape than those that were “restored”—incorrectly. Learn from the bad mistakes that homeowners and professionals make. Understand how Portland cement has caused headaches (and even irreversible destruction) to old buildings that depend on the sacrificial and plastic nature of soft mortars.
Check out the Historic Home Show’s site for the complete schedule of workshops and speaker lineup.
