Would you spend $50 to save $1,000? In this hands-on workshop, historic window specialist Paul Schmidt of Restoration Window Systems shows how repairing old wooden windows can save money, improve window operation, boost energy efficiency and maintain architectural integrity. Get a thorough overview on how to repair drafts, deal with glazing and sashes, fix broken glass, and much more. An absolute don’t-miss for anyone who cares for an old house or structure, this class is presented by Preservation Alliance of Minnesota in partnership with the Minnesota Historical Society and the Morrison County Historical Society.

This one-of-a-kind Rehab Lab will be held at The Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Memorial Museum in Little Falls, Minnesota. Class attendees will take part in repairing the museum’s original windows. The museum’s architect, Foster Dunwiddie, used local materials and styles that evoke Morrison County’s history. The museum was completed in 1975.
