About the Event

Ever think to yourself, are my wood windows worth saving? Can I repair them myself? Will I save money on my energy bill? (Answers: Yes, yes, and yes!)

Join window specialists Paul Freese and Bill Smith for a morning all about windows. Paul and Bill will dispel common myths about old wood windows, explain the difference between original and replacement windows, and demonstrate common repairs that you can do at home. You'll get a thorough overview on how to repair drafts, reglaze windows, fix rotted wood, and improve overall window operation. Most importantly, you'll learn why old wood windows can be just as energy efficient as replacements.

Located just south of Ely, MN, the Halfway Ranger Station is an important historic site within the Superior National Forest. For many years, it has been a site for large mammal research and forestry education. Currently it is a training site for historic preservation  managed by Northern Bedrock Historic Preservation Corps. This workshop is a great opportunity to learn the hands-on knowledge and skills for maintaining and restoring traditional wood windows.

This class is part of the rehab education program of Rethos: Places Reimagined, with funding support from the Minnesota Historical Society. We are proud to offer a variety of classes for homeowners, students, Realtors, and others who love old buildings.
