    We will be helping to repair windows at the Boggy Creek Farmhouse 

    Whereas most houses in and around 1830’s-1840’s Austin were either log cabins or simple plank dogtrot structures, the Boggy Creek Farmhouse is a Greek Revival design, with identical rooms flanking a central hallway.

    The goal will be to assess the windows, remove the windows most in need of help, do some on site jamb repairs, re-roping, replace some broken panes, etc. It's a chance to work side by side with your peers and help out this still working farm in Austin.

    Bring & Brag Session @ 2019 WPA Annual Meeting

    The Bring and Brag is a fun session that requires your participation in order for it to be successful.  Don’t be shy—you will be among friends.

    Bring and Brag is a series of short presentations by the attendees of the WPA Annual Meeting.  Your presentation can be up to 5 minutes long and should be accompanied by some great photos.

    Here is a list of potential topics or come up with something else you would like to share with your fellow window geeks:

    • ·       A project with the most beautiful windows you have ever seen.
    • ·       A project where you replaced awful replacement windows with historic replicas
    •        An historic building that presented unique challenges
    •         A project with unusual windows or hardware.
    • ·       A set up in your shop or in the field that makes your work more efficient.
    • ·       A cool tool (not a sales presentation!)

    After your register for the Annual Meeting, register here to reserve your Bring and Brag spot.  Then, submit this form and your photographs to Jodi Rubin at jodirubin@sps247.net.

    IMPORTANT: Registrants must submit the 2019 Bring and Brag Annual Meeting Proposal for consideration. Completed proposals should be emailed to Jodi Rubin, jodirubin@sps247.net. You will be notified if your proposal is accepted.

    Must already be registered for the 2019 WPA Annual Meeting.

    What if Bring n Brag had a baby?

    You get: Tips & Techniques

    What is Tips & Techniques you ask? It’s similar to B n B in format as it's a fun, fast paced presentation but it is geared towards highlighting unique shop processes, tips or techniques over company projects.

    The short presentation is only 8 minutes long, which highlights a shop process, tip or technique you find invaluable in your day-to-day work. Sessions will run back to back in rapid succession so sticking to the allotted time is critical! We will be limiting the presentations to a max of five (5).

    Here is how it works: You fill out the T&T form, gather two or three high quality photographs or a power point and submit it all to John Leegwater at john@mtcrestoration.com. Please note: this is not sales presentation! Once your idea is accepted, he will contact you about the timing of the session so you can be sure to be there.

    Interested? Get your submittal to John by Monday, February 25, 2018. Questions? Email him or call at 616-485-5782.
