Workshop 2: Walls and Framing

Date: Saturday, July 19th
Time: 10:00-12:00
Location: 118 S. Driver
Cost: $10
Presenter: Nick Broccolo, Renovision

What is balloon framing? What’s load? How can I tell which walls are load-bearing? Most importantly, how can I easily and quickly add more closet space to my historic house? Join us for the answers to all of these questions (and more!) in our second Renovator’s Network workshop. Nick Broccolo, an experienced contractor, will help us figure out how walls were historically constructed, and how we can maximize that for our modern lives. Space is limited, and preregistration is required. To sign up, please email elizabeth@preservationdurham.org.

 

The Renovator’s Network workshop series is sponsored by the Reuse Warehouse. Make sure to check with them for all of your lumber and salvage needs!
