Peninsula Building Doctor Clinic
Terry Lumber & Supply Co. and the Ohio Historic Preservation Office of the Ohio Historical Society will sponsor a Building Doctor Clinic for old-building owners in the Peninsula, Ohio, area on May 1–2, 2014.
The clinic begins with a free seminar on Thursday evening, May 1, from 7-9 p.m. at G.A.R. Hall, 1785 Main St. (State Route 303), Peninsula. Open to all old-building owners in the area, the seminar will feature guidelines for renovation projects and ways to solve some of the most common problems of buildings dating from 1800 to 1955.
On Friday, May 2, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., the Building Doctors will visit pre-1955 buildings within five miles of Peninsula, advising owners on specific technical or design problems by appointment. The ‘doctors’ examine all kinds of older buildings. Some of the things that typically call for an on-site examination include persistent peeling paint or flaking plaster, a wet basement, deteriorating masonry, and plans for remodeling, additions, or demolitions.
The seminar and on-site consultations are free with advance registration by April 24, 2014.
