Whether you're a home owner, general contractor, avid craftsman, architect, or someone who simply loves old houses, this course is for you. Join us for a 5-day workshop to rehabilitate historic wood windows at the incredible Kenton Ash estate. Built c1801, the Kenton Ash house is a remarkable survivor of early Kentucky and will allow course participants an exceptional experience to learn hands on with original materials. Properly repaired historic windows have been proven as effective and as energy efficient as modern replacements when treated properly.
