Join us on February 20th for a Building Basics Workshop hosted by the Main Street Design Committee. This is a free informational workshop for all business and building owners in the area. Kelly Timmerman, Design Specialist for the Michigan Main Street Program, will be conducting this presentation. This workshop will discuss the importance of historic preservation in our downtown buildings while making them functional for today’s use.
Topics include: What is historic preservation and what does it mean in your community? What is a Sense of Place and why does it matter? Appropriate design in a traditional Main Street downtown environment? What do we have to work with in terms of our building stock? Façade anatomy, Finishes and materials, Character-defining features, Dos/Don’t’s + Why? The materials science behind recommended treatments.
