If you own or are looking to buy an older home that you want to repair or renovate while maintaining its character, this workshop is for you. Everyone has heard of a renovation project gone wrong. But with some knowledge and preparation, you can renovate your older home with less stress, fewer surprises and keep the character and charm of your home intact. Join us to learn what resources are available to you and where you can find the help you need.
