Green historic preservation workshop

"Going green." Everybody's talking about it, but what does it mean for those of us who love and live in older homes? Surprisingly, there are some pretty easy ways to be eco-friendly, respect the architectural character of your house, and save yourself some hard-earned money at the same time.

Come to the Sarah Benedict House, home of the Cleveland Restoration Society, to hear Jamie Bertram, one of CRS's expert staff members, discuss the basics of "greening" your older house. Some of the topics that Jamie will discuss include:

  • why your house is inherently green;
  • energy audits;
  • common contributors of energy loss;
  • cost effective remedies that are also sensitive to historic homes; new green technologies available to homeowners;
  • and tips on sustainable living.
