Get Hands-on Help with Older Homes

Homeowner Workshops We blog about modern construction all of the time, but what if you're an aspiring owner of an historic home? These homes may require a bit more attention than a new or updated home. The Preservation Alliance of Philadelphia is holding a series of workshops with hands-on demonstrations and visuals on how to restore and maintain older properties. All workshops will be held at the Coral Street Arts House in East Kensington.

In addition to the workshops, there will be lectures in Fairmount for further insight on historic home buying and owning.

All Fairmount workshops start at 6:30pm.

Location: Fairmount Community Development Corporation, 2206 Fairmount Avenue, Philadelphia

Just goes to show you how areas differ. We really don't have any older housing here to speak of...not really old anyway.

This is a great post for me to share in my area.  Salem Co. NJ has many, many patterned brick homes.  Thanks so much for the info.

Christopher and Stephanie, I should move to Philadelphia for a few weeks to attend these sessions.  My old house needs some help!

In an old home, I'm tempted to hit these sessions. What a great program, Christoper & Stephanie!
