Coming Events for Historic Home Show Addicts


Recommended Posts

If you live in the mid-west or east and you really appreciate and love to inspect historic homes, instead of flying to Florida this month or next month to sit through the same old home inspector fare to garner your CEU's, you might consider driving to one of the historic building events taking place in the east and mid-west this winter and early spring.

First up is the Old House Expo 2006 being held in Kalamazoo, Mich January 20th thru 21st. This conference will be full of free workshops and seminars with Hands-on demonstrations in bricklaying for the novice and paint striping along with presentations on a wide variety of topics including painting your old house, getting the right homeowners insurance, planning a project and the perennial favorite – window rehabilitation and weatherization.For more information, visit The Old House Network or call 269-349-2022.

Next up is the Greater Philadelphia Historic Home Show, which is being held January 27th thru 29th at the Valley Forge Convention Center in King of Prussia, PA. More than 70 exhibits will touch on everything an old house needs for restoration and décor, indoors and outdoors. Also included are educational workshops, lectures, and seminars. Admission: $35 Friday evening; $12 Saturday and Sunday. For more information, visit the home show website or call 717-796-2380.

Last is The Traditional Building Exhibition and Conference (formerly known as the Restoration & Renovation Show) which will be held April 5th thru April 8th in Chicago, IL.

This is the only national trade show and conference for old house owners, architects, contractors, developers, building owners and craftsmen who work in historic restoration, renovation, and traditionally-inspired new design and construction.

For more information, visit the conference website.

Inspectors who would like to attend these shows to garner CEU's should first contact their professional association to ensure that their time at any of these conferences will be credited toward their annual requirements.
