Historic Door Installation Workshop
Have you ever wanted to install a historic door? Or, do you have one that does not close or latch properly?
In this hands-on workshop, we will build and install a new door frame including jams, casings, & stops in a 140+ year old house and hang a historic salvaged door. Installation of historic and modern door hardware will also be covered.
Meet us at The Salvage Shop by Preservation Burlington, wear warm clothes, bring a folding chair, bring your lunch (or we'll have lunch available for $15 purchase). If you're a member of Preservation Burlington, this workshop is complimentary with your membership. If you are NOT a member, tickets will be $10.
RSVP by January 21 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with subject "HISTORIC DOOR INSTALLATION WORKSHOP".
