Join Shaker Historical Museum and CC Restoration for Understanding and Maintaining Wood Windows and Doors, an interactive workshop for owners of old homes. In the morning, we’ll explore the basics of door construction, learn to address common issues like binding and draftiness, and get hands-on experience installing spring bronze weatherstripping. In the afternoon, you’ll gain insights into wood windows, including basics of construction, window types and styles, and how to address common wood window maintenance such as re-roping and glazing.

Don’t miss this chance to enhance your DIY skills and ensure your home’s doors and windows are in top-notch condition! This session includes hands-on work and is restricted to participants ages 18 years old and older. All attendees will be required to sign a waiver upon check-in.
