WWM Historic Homes Workshop 2017

The WWM Historic Homes Workshop holds its 9th annual event February 10th through 18th at the Wood Window Makeover campus located at 1706 W. Cypress St, 33606. Old house professionals from across the nation converge and unite to empower the next generation of old house lovers. With over 80,000 buildings in the Tampa Bay area that are historic/vintage/old, there’s 80,000 reasons to come to the Historic Homes Workshop. More information is available at woodwindowmakeover.com/historic-homes- workshop, or contact Steve Quillian at 813-404- 6498

The workshop begins Friday, February 10 at 6:00 pm with a catered kick-off party to allow guest to meet and network. Saturday morning beginning at 9:00am, the Historic Homes Workshop showcases “how to” sessions with the professionals. Some of the sessions feature guests from out of town, such as Craig Bennett from Bennett Preservation Engineering in Charleston, South Carolina, Amy Swift from Building Hugger in Detroit, Michigan and Ty McBride from Wood Window Rescue in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Other sessions feature local favorites such as Scott Sidler, the best-selling author and preservation contractor of Austin Home Restorations in Orlando, Jo-Anne Peck of Historic Shed in Brooksville and Steve Quillian from Wood Window Makeover in Tampa. The cost to attend these two days is $50.

Consistent with America’s recent cultural shift to the trades, the Historic Homes Workshop’s main draw is the “Hands-On” element that begins Sunday morning, February 12 at 8:00am at the Seminole Heights United Methodist Church in Tampa. This is our “Pros teaching Joes.” Historic Window Preservation Professionals from all over Florida and the United States are coming together to donate their time and skills to teach participants how to bring old windows back to life, by actually restoring the windows on the church building. Over the past two years, participants have donated almost $40,000 worth of restoration services.

Three people who have attended the “Hands-On” element actually started their own window restorations business in Tampa Bay this year, making Tampa a hot spot for historic window restoration and Historic Preservation. The cost to attend these three days is $200. Bill Hunter, secretary of the Old Seminole Heights Neighborhood Association said about the 2015 Historic Homes Workshop, “I enjoyed your window event very much. It was a great experience and I learned a great deal. Please let me know of any future ones like it.”

To conclude the Historic Homes Workshop, host Wood Window Makeover will train participants in all aspects of the historic window restoration business, from basic mechanics and restoration procedures to marketing strategies and practical business administration. The goal is to certify participants and set them up to begin earning money right away in the blossoming window restoration trade. Cost to attend these 9 days is $2500.

The goal of the Historic Homes Workshop has always been to empower those who love old buildings with knowledge of materials and methods they need to care for their buildings. With 80,000 historic/vintage/old buildings in the Tampa Bay area alone, a new goal of empowering and equipping the next generation of those who love old buildings has begun. Steve Quillian, founder of Wood Window Makeover and the Historic Homes Workshop, has made it his personal goal for each historic neighborhood to have a competent historic window restorer of its own.

It’s easy to fall in love with an old house. One look at their high ceilings, built in cabinets, large windows and deep porches set along grand tree lined streets and your heart is sold. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy to know what to do when the house you fell in love with is in need of repair. To help smitten old house lovers, Tampa Preservation, Inc. is once again offering a one day Historic Homes Workshop to connect homeowners to experts who will share their knowledge of historic home renovation.

The theme for this year’s workshop is Maintaining the Old House with a focus on preventing future costly repairs.  With twelve workshops offered, maintenance topics will include Restoring Wood Windows, Foundation and Roof Repair, Appropriate Exterior Details as well as interior renovation topics such as Remodeling a Period Bath. A highlight this year will be a special workshop at Schiller’s Architectural Salvage on Incorporating Salvaged Materials in Home Decor. Admission to the workshop is free for Tampa Preservation, Inc. members and $5 for non-members. Lunch will be available for Workshop participants to purchase.

“We get a lot of calls at the TPI office for homeowners looking for professionals to help them with their historic homes from design issues to contractors to do the work,” observes Becky Clarke, TPI President. “This event will showcase local experts who will share their knowledge and hopefully give away some of their industry secrets.” In addition to the Workshops, a vendor display area will allow homeowners to meet and discuss their home projects with preservation-related businesses such as Through the Woods Fine Wood Floors (wood floor repair and refinishing), Wood Window Makeover (historic window repair) and Historic Shed (custom sheds for historic homes).

When you think of historic buildings at risk, visions of heritage train stations, courthouses and other culturally significant buildings come to mind. And sadly, every day these magnificent structures do face the wrecking ball. But, on a smaller, but no less important scale, is the loss of pieces of our own neighborhood history, due to the lack of knowledge of their value and the lack of skill for their care. Wood windows, original flooring and built-in bookcases are demolished every day, destroying architectural features and beauty and reducing home values.

Tampa Preservation, Inc., a private, non-profit organization, established in 1973., is dedicated to the preservation of the historic structures and neighborhoods of the Tampa Bay area and Hillsborough County, and to the education of the  area’s school children and residents about their unique heritage.

TPI’s Historic Home Workshops provide tips from over a dozen experts on how to save these historic materials. This
year’s event will be held at the Historic Seminole Heights United Methodist Church, 6111 N Central Ave on Saturday, April 14 10 am and end at 4 pm. This church, located on the southeast corner of Hanna and Central Avenues was built in 1927 and has its own story of revitalization. Admission to the workshop is free.

“Historic homeowners often wish to take a hands-on approach to restoring their houses. This workshop will offer
information on some of the skills required,” observes Becky Clarke, TPI President. “The homeowner who wishes to hire professionals will come away more educated on what is available and how to best utilize restoration experts.”

Kim and Richard Headland, two architects who own a bungalow in VM Ybor will talk about the mistakes that can be made in renovating an old house and how to rectify some of the worst horrors. Plenty of photographs and personal experience will lead attendees through some lesser known facts on how to restore a home in a manner that is historically appropriate and retains its value, while allowing for modern conveniences.

Other topics to be covered are landscaping, restoring wood windows and refinishing wood floors. Each will provide
information learned from the speakers’ many years of experience.

Last year’s premier event opened with a line of people standing out into the street. Attendees were enthusiastic about
applying what they learned. Their only complaint was that the venue was too small. We have remedied it this year. There will be space for all!

The event will start at 10 am and end at 4 pm. Three workshops will be presented every hour, with a break at for lunch and a chance to chat with the displayers and fellow attendees, and view historic photos from Steve and Mario of The Tampa Natives Show.
