Description

Window Restoration & Weatherization Boot Camp is a fun and intense, three-day, hands-on learning experience. Students will learn cost-effective restoration & weatherization of historic, double-hung, wood windows. You will be part of a team restoring the original wood windows in a historic property located in the Central Park National Historic District in Hannibal, Missouri.

This is a tuition-based class with a limit of 8 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 and has restored over 7,500 windows in his 45-year career.

This will be an intense, learn-by-doing opportunity. You will learn: sash removal, safe paint & glass removal, epoxy wood repair, glazing putty application, sash painting, re-roping sash weights, weather stripping & sash installation. At the end of the three days you will know from beginning to end, how to completely restore a double-hung window & receive a “Certificate of Completion”.

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

Tuition for this three-day workshop is $475 and includes beverages and lunch.  Space is limited to eight students in each session and pre-registration is required.

Now for the COVID part of this workshop. It is nearly impossible to keep 6 feet separation during class. We can keep separation at lunch and on the huge porch in the evenings. As such, I am requiring every student to bring their personal COVID mask and wear it during class. I know it’s a pain, but there is no reason for us to put each other at risk. Sort of the new reality in the world. We were spotless before, but now we have serious COVID cleaning protocols for the Inn and the School, also for your safety. And of course, if you’re not feeling well, please do not come.

Affordable motels as well as bed & breakfast inns are available for out of town students. Special rates are also available here at the Belvedere Inn B & B.
