S+H Construction to present “From Past to Present – Demystifying the Historic Home Renovation Process” at the 2013 Ellis Boston Antiques Show
S+H Construction – proud sponsor of the 2013 Ellis Boston Antiques Show – is pleased to present “From Past to Present – Demystifying the Historic Home Renovation Process,” a Q&A-focused seminar on what to expect when embarking on an historic home renovation. Co-hosted by Design New England Magazine, the seminar takes place 3PM on Saturday, October 26th at The 2013 Ellis Boston Antiques Show, Cyclorama, Boston Center for the Arts and is FREE with the purchase of a ticket to the show.
The goal of this presentation is to arm homeowners who are contemplating purchasing an historic property, or may already own one with information that prepares them to confidently tackle an historic renovation project. Moderated by Gail Ravgiala, editor of Design New England Magazine, the panel of experts includes Doug Hanna, president of S+H Construction and Dan McLaughlin, S+H project manager; Charlie Myer, principal architect of Charles Myer + Partners; Jon Hattaway and Martin Potter, owners of MJ Berries Design; and Bruce Irving, renovation consultant and former producer of This Old House.
“Renovating a historic property presents a number of challenges over and above what a homeowner faces with a standard home remodeling project,” states Hanna. “Dealing with a town’s historic commission is a process in and of itself– and not always an easy one. We’ve put together a panel of experts with first-hand experience working on historic properties. They will share their knowledge and answer questions on everything from attending hearings, to incorporating the right décor, to seamlessly integrating the old with the new.”
“From Past to Present – Demystifying the Historic Home Renovation Process” also features two historic properties that received complete facelifts – both inside and out. One of the properties received an award from the Cambridge Historic Commission for maintaining the integrity and character of the original structure while also providing modern conveniences.
