Own  a mid-century modern home? Dealing with the joys and pitfalls of a flat  roof? Struggling with your casement windows? Got concrete that needs  help? Learn about all this at Mid-Century Modern: Concrete and More.  The workshop will be held at a one-of-a-kind poured concrete structure  home built in 1938-39 by St. Cloud residents, Colie and Naomi Guy. This  early twentieth century art deco wonder is the perfect setting for a  class on modernist architecture and concrete. Experience polished  concrete floors, floor-to-ceiling round windows and a spiral staircase  that leads to a large rec room in the lower level. Artists and  horticulturalists, the Guys designed their home on the banks of the  Mississippi River to be the “House-of-Tomorrow.”

This  class will increase your knowledge of modernist architecture, its  challenges and benefits, and will empower you to tackle a wide variety  of repair and maintenance projects on your own. Learn how modernist  structures are filled with great living spaces and are adaptable to just  about any lifestyle and use.

The  class will include a tour and assessment of the home with owner and  real estate agent, Gavin Henry, and instructor, Eric Cheever, followed  by a crash course in the basics of concrete maintenance and repair.  Learn what to look for from a realtor and a building expert and see how a  perceived pitfall can actually be a benefit. Join us Saturday, May  14th, 9:30 am to noon!
