Window Restoration & Weatherization Boot Camp is a fun and intense, three-day, hands-on learning experience. Students will learn cost-effective restoration & weatherization of original, double-hung, wood windows.

You will be part of a team restoring original wood, double hung windows in a historic house or building in the Central Park National Historic District in Hannibal, Missouri.  

This is a tuition-based class with a limit of 12 students. You will be working side-by-side all three days with instructor Bob Yapp. Bob is nationally recognized as one of the top experts in window restoration & is a founding member of The National Window Preservation Standards Collaborative. Bob has restored over 6,500 windows in his 43-year career.

Window Boot Camp is an intense, learn-by-doing opportunity. You will learn sash removal, safe paint & glass removal, wood repair, glazing putty application, complete weather stripping & sash installation which includes re-roping the sash weights.

At the end of the three days you and your teammates will have restored and weather stripped a double hung window unit from beginning to end. Every student completing the workshop receives a "Certificate of Completion".

Homeowners, small contractors, preservation staff, preservation commission members, preservation students, architects and historic building owners all benefit from this hands-on, traditional training event. All skill levels are encouraged to sign up.

Tuition for this three-day workshop is $400 and includes fresh ground morning coffee, beverages and lunch. Space is limited to ten students in each session and pre-registration is required 

Affordable hotels and bed & breakfast inns are available for out of town students. For more information or to pre-register call Bob Yapp,
