Hi John,

I am glad to see this event getting off the ground. I've been excited about it ever since our conversation, and I'd still love to serve as an advisor in the area of documentation! Please let me know what I can do to help.

Hi Amy, welcome to the Forum and the Collaborative.

I've already got you on the list of advisers with this:

Amy McAuley
Portland, OR
http://oculuswindow.blogspot.com/
Amy is experienced at restoring and making windows by hand. She is excellent at documenting her work, and would make a good contribution to the standards as the "craft practice documentation specialist."


I'll let you know when registration forms for the Summit are available, and when drafts of the documentation topic of the standards are available for your review.

At your blog, you might post message about Standards, your part in it, and a link to the WSPC website: http://ptnresource.org/WPSC/ and this Forum: http://www.ptnresource.org/WPSC_forum/

One thing you could do now is simply browse around the Forum, and leave comments on anything that comes to mind. Several aspects of the project are still in the planning and startup phase and your guidance could make a difference. Also, this would help to get discussions going and attract others via the search engines.

John,

I am with the Christman Company actively involved in historic projects and believe the industry would benefit greatly from a standards of care document when approaching widow restoration. I would like to volunteer my experiences and observations as an Adviser in formulating the standards package...

Douglas:

Welcome to the Forum and the Window Standards project.

What is your own personal experience with windows? (hands-on? managing window projects? How many windows in a typical project? How many windows or window projects have you worked on over the years?)

Steve Schoberg here! I am co owner of Schoberg Restorations Inc located in Plymouth, Indiana. (Northern Indiana) We have been restoring windows in our area since about 2000. My back ground is carpentry and I was in business at one time selling vinyl replacement windows (I know, Yuck) My partner is Jeff Schoberg (my son).

We are pretty pasionate about preserving, restoring and using original windows. We not only restore original windows but also make custom wood storms with either fixed glass or inside removable screen and glass inserts (non self storing style)

Our scope of past work includes residential as well as comercial projects. We can handle and have handled up to a 300 window restoration project. We have learned very much from Bob Yapp and from John Leeke's forum. With the experience we have we know what works and what doesn't and we're eager to learn more.

This project is exciting and is an industry changing event. We are glad to be a part.

Steve Schoberg has been accepted as an Adviser for the Standards project.

Steve, I know you have a lot to offer about wood windows, but your past experience in vinyl window sales is unique among us "putty heads" and your insight on how the vinyl pirates think and how that industry operates could be very very valuable to the Standards project.

John,

I have been involved in the industry since the late 70’s from CM & GC work to full hands on restoration. My projects have consisted of a few dozen windows to over one hundred at a time. The present project I am working on at the University of Virginia has roughly 50 windows that we have restored as part of our overall project.

Hey John,

Either David Gibney or Duffy Hoffman (or both) may have already submitted my name as an advisor for the WPSC, or a potential one... not sure.

Thanks for the email... got through this time with your link. Much appreciated.

Hope to see you soon.

Christian

Christian:

Contact David or Duffy to confirm you accept their invitation, then remind them that they have to submit a little description of you here at the Forum.

Of course, you can always introduce yourself, by posting a reply here, and let us know about your window work.
