About the Event


In this virtual workshop, we’re learning about two of the most common old home issues: windows and rot. Using examples from our “lab” - the beautiful Cox House in St. Peter, instructor Laura Leppink will demonstrate basic repairs.

You will have the opportunity to see elements of the Cox House repaired and restored. You will leave the webinar with a firsthand view of common repairs, a list of resources and supplies recommendations, and a package of demonstration videos specific to this class.

This webinar will utilize Zoom to share videos from the Cox House and host live Q&A sessions with our instructor Laura. A deep dive into these common issues will help you prioritize and plan for window and rot repair projects at your own house.

Join us as we explore the Cox House together while learning how to better take care of your beloved home. The Cox House, one of the few fully restored Carpenter Gothic cottages in Minnesota, is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Eugene St. Julien Cox and his wife Mariah “Mayhew” Cox built this home and raised their family here. The women raised in this house went on to make local and state history. The Cox House interprets the lives and experiences of Victorian women and tells those stories in dynamic ways to diverse audiences.
