The Old House Plant Palette
August 10, 11:00am-1:00pm
Limited to 50
Join us once again in the Whaley House Garden/Gazebo where noted landscape historian, Vonn Marie May will lecture on the historic house landscape. This will be followed by a tour of the Mission Hills Nursery where we will show you just how readily available the appropriate plants for your period landscape are.
The Sensitive Additions & Period Bathrooms
August 17, 1:00-3:30pm
Limited to 40
Bruce Coons, Erik Hanson, & David Swarens show how to blend the old with the new. This wonderful Mission Hills Spanish bungalow is situated in a lovely family oriented neighborhood with a great canyon backyard, mature eucalyptus & ambiance that the owners did not want to leave although their family was quickly growing out of it. An addition was the solution & the owners insisted on keeping the original house's integrity intact with a historically sensitive addition. In the new bathrooms you will learn how to blend vintage style with today's modern needs. Hardscape is an important part of any new addition & that will also be a portion of the workshops focus.
Using Vintage Appliances in your Old House
August 24, 11:00am-12:30pm
Limited to 50
Join the proprietors of RMR Stoves and learn how you can incorporate vintage appliances. In 1997, three friends got together and decided to combine their love of things past into a now burgeoning business restoring vintage stoves. Rena Holford, Vintage Stove Technical Specialist (15 years previous experience), Robert Fanella, Engineer, and Michael Kravcar, Business Manager, found that by bringing together their diverse talents they were able to create a new business providing stoves and services to consumers with historical interests.
Holford, Fanella & Kravcar take restoration very seriously. In order to learn more about the stoves they restore, they research University Libraries and seek out old stove manuals and catalogs for original advertising and technical information.
This first time workshop will be held in the Whaley House Garden/Gazebo area. RMR will show you how using old appliances in the kitchen, bathroom and other areas of the house can add to the character and enjoyment of your old house.
