Join us at the Landmarks Preservation Resource Center for our ongoing programs on house restoration, architecture, history and other aspects of historic preservation, community development, and urban planning.
We provide an overview of construction contracts, change orders, requests for information, insurance requirements, quality control inspections and other administrative and paperwork aspects of construction. This workshop is helpful for both homeowners and young contractors, and it will include discussion with enough real-world examples, and focus on how horror stories in simple house construction projects happen and how to avoid them.
