The Noblesville Preservation Alliance is partnering with Nickel Plate Arts to present a workshop on restoring wood windows. The Preservation Alliance encourages homeowners to renovate their original wood windows if possible instead of replacing them. Original windows are often made of superior materials; preserving them keeps the historic character of the home intact and is usually less expensive than replacements.
The workshop will be held Saturday morning, March 24, 9am-10:30am at the Stephenson House, 123 S. 8th St., Noblesville, next door to the Judge Stone House. The two structures are soon to become the headquarters of the Nickel Plate Arts, an arts-based community development initiative funded by the Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Full construction and restoration of the site has begun, and will be partially open to the public in June.
Attendees will learn how to disassemble old windows, paint removal techniques, glazing technique, painting and weatherization tips, and more.
The instructor will be Gary Bartunek, co-owner of R E Repair & Remodel LLC and a seasoned renovator who has improved several Noblesville homes.
The workshop is being funded by the Noblesville Preservation Alliance and the Convention and Visitors Bureau and is free to the public. RSVP’s to firstname.lastname@example.org are appreciated. Call Elizabeth Boase at 317-410-3977 for more info.
