Neighbors: Upcoming Homeowner Workshops

SOSNA and the Preservation Alliance for Greater Philadelphia is hosting a series of Homeowner Workshops for owners and aspiring owners of historic homes. Right after we bought our house, Rob attended one of these workshops way out in Chestnut Hill, while I went to pick up our rain barrel. Now that they’re right down the street, I’m eyeing up “Flat Roof Repair”, as one of our bay windows likes to collect water during storms and we’d like to fix it sometime soon.

Check out the classes offered below:
