Chicago Vintage Home Workshops

The Chicago Greystone & Vintage Home Program ® invites you to a series of monthly workshops on the care and maintenance of vintage homes – from greystones and workers cottages to bungalows and raised ranches. Held at locations across Chicago, the workshops address a broad range of home improvement, historic preservation, green building, and maintenance/DIY topics. Presenters include experienced contractors, architects, preservation experts, green building consultants, and Neighborhood Housing Services of Chicago staff.

Broadly speaking, Chicago Vintage Home Workshops fall into three categories:

  • Rehab Ready Workshops – Best practices for planning rehab projects, working with architects and contractors, and ensuring the long-term maintenance of your vintage home.
  • Practical Green ® Workshops – Enhance the comfort, safety, energy efficiency, and indoor air quality of your vintage home.
  • Hands On/DIY Workshops – Bridge the knowing and doing gap through on-site vintage rehab demonstrations and topical DIY workshops. There may be a fee for attending these programs.
