Historic Homes Workshop



About the Historic Homes Workshop

For over 10 years, Wood Window Makeover has hosted the annual Historic Homes Workshop.  Originally a small afternoon workshop, the event has now grown to receive national recognition, attract participants from across the country, and last year contributed over $50k in donated repairs to the recipient building. This year, experts and enthusiasts will come together for a week-long event in February 2020, to share information, learn new skills, connect, and contribute to a historic building in need in the Tampa Bay area.


What we’re looking for

We’re looking for a historic building in need of restoration in the Tampa Bay area, that lacks their own funds to make the repairs themselves. The building that hosts the event will have many of its windows, and potentially other architectural elements, restored by workshop participants, free of charge. In return, we ask that the building owners provide support with the event, including arranging food and water, volunteers (or staff) during the event etc.


Deadline: All nominations must be submitted by OCTOBER 31st



  • Buildings nominated must have double-hung wood windows

  • Buildings may be nominated by anyone but will require owner consent and involvement. The building owner or designated owner’s representative should be willing to participate during the planning of the workshop

  • Priority will be given to nonprofit organizations

  • Buildings nominated must be in the Tampa Bay area

  • Buildings nominated must have a minimum of 20 double-hung wood windows in need of repair

  • Building nominated must have a current certificate of occupancy
