Preaching the Double Hung gospel

Starting tomorrow, I am taking a couple of breaks from fixing old windows to do my bit for educating people on the ways and economics of historic restoration.

Preservation North Carolina’s annual conference begins tomorrow in Raleigh and I will be one of the presenters (brochure, pdf file).  Seems I have become a “preservation specialist” and an expert in my field.  As usual, titles are awarded in lieu of money but I’ve been told that will come.

Next week’s “expert” appearance will be in Athens, GA as a guest of the Athens Clark Heritage Foundation.  Director Al Pless found out about what I do through Double Hung’s website and gave a call to see if I could come down and do my thing (again for free).  I was happy to oblige.

As usually happens with events like the one in Athens, I’ve already lined up several onsite ‘consultations’, both on the University of Georgia’s campus with UofG’s head architect and with other locals who are interested in getting their windows restored.  We’ll probably be in Georgia for some time to come.  Go Bulldogs.

    David, I am so proud of you and Jinni, and it has been exciting watching the growth of your business. “If you repair them (windows), they will come…” You have followed your passion and the business has followed you.
