Talking Townhouse: A Restoration Case Study

Restoring an historic townhouse can be much like a complicated scientific experiment. Many elements must work together, and all the equations must add up. This presentation will break down the components of one such restoration project that took place right here in Greenwich Village, viewing it through the eyes of the various people involved in the process.

Speakers will be: Katherine Schoonover, homeowner and Villager; Carl Culbreth of Preserv, exterior contractor; Todd Knapp, AIA, architect; and Henry DeWees of DeWees-Mellor, interior contractor. Before and after pictures will be shown and personal stories and general guidelines for historic restorations will be discussed.
