2014 Vets Restore Begins in September
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Vets Restore
Website: http://vetsrestore.org

4Culture is happy to announce that Vets Restore 2014 will begin mid-September. Welcome to a great new group of trainees. Our cadre of recruits includes both men and women, Army and Navy veterans, bringing a wide skill base and varied carpentry experience. 4Culture staff will be posting updates on this group through the Vets Restore blog. We’ll introduce them at the start of training, and follow them through their progress over the 12 week program.

Training begins September 15th at Washington Hall in Seattle, owned and operated by Vets Restore partner Historic Seattle. The vintage Washington Hall will be home base for our preservation carpentry training. Instructor Rick Sever, Residential Construction, will first provide participants with an overview of preservation principles and current industry techniques, and lead site visits to restoration projects around the city. Next comes several weeks of hands-on work restoring the hall’s original wood windows under the professional direction of Bear Wood Windows.

After training, each of our participants will enter into a five week, paid internship with one of our five construction industry affiliates, courtesy of our partner the King County Veterans’ Program. New industry affiliates Susan Black & Associates and Abacus Fine Carpentry, bring a very focused approach to historic preservation, through landscape architecture and high-end custom woodworking. For more information about these affiliates, or our other wonderful construction team partners (Bear Wood Windows, JAS Design/Build, and the Rafn Company) visit the Vets Restore website.

Looking forward to many great things this fall from the Vets Restore class of 2014!
