Architecture to the Rescue!
If you are thinking about building a new home, putting on an addition or renovating an old house; you only have one chance to get it right. Serious thought and critical decisions need to be made to avoid rotting walls, high utility bills, and unwelcoming spaces. Join local architect, Alan Benoit, for an engaging presentation filled with illumination, insulation, and information you won’t hear anywhere else.
During this informative talk, Alan will help you avoid many common pitfalls by explaining everything you need to know about proper wall design, various building materials as well as a touch of building science. His presentation will include many hands-on samples as well as photographs that clearly show side by side examples of bad design vs. good architecture. Better still, he will demonstrate how architecture can be inspirational, create a sense of place, and truly save the day!
