Join us for our most sought-after Rehabber Club workshop! Register now for the Wood Window Repair Workshop and Certification Course, led by Steve Quillian of Wood Window Makeover. This course features four registration options, ranging from beginner-level to advanced. Learn essential techniques from one of the industry's best instructors!

About the venue: The event will take place at a historic home in the Monticello Park Historic District. Constructed in the 1930s, this grand Spanish Eclectic house features four sets of casement windows on the first floor that were custom designed for the home. The house is currently undergoing a full interior remodel, and these windows will be part of the finishing touches.

Additionally, the owner of this home will benefit immensely from this work. Lydia and her family have gone through significant hardships recently, including a fire in the house. This course will provide much-needed repairs to the most complex windows in the house. Your participation will make a difference, and will help make Lydia's house feel like a home!
