Hey John,

Somehow I can't find a beautiful annotated history of my life with pictures in full color with circles and arrows, links to websites, witty insights and a bit of lore. I was actually going to re-post it. A work of art, for a BBS, I swear. Amazingly it was all true too, at least as far as I can tell.

I'll call Gibney and Hoffman.

Christian

Greetings,

I am John Lindtner, from Building Preservation Services, LLC in West Grove, PA. I specialize in restoring wooden windows and am also a dealer and installer of Mon-Ray storm windows. Serving Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Maryland, I have restored a couple hundred windows in my 5 years of operation. I have worked with several types of weatherstripping on my projects and feel that I can offer input as well as play devil’s advocate on this topic, storm windows, and on the methods I have used or seen used to restore windows. Areas of key interest include the performance and longevity of different weatherstripping systems (especially at the parting bead meeting rail) and fighting the war on replacements.

I have been called by David Gibney and voices in my head to attend The Summit.

Hey John,

I am very excited about this summit. A little bit about myself: I am Angel Corrales, the founder of My Old House Restoration Co.- MOHR for short. We specialize in historic window restoration. I technically started restoring windows at age 11, when I broke a pane of glass in our rental home, which used to be a corner grocery store. In a panic I rode my 3 speed Huffy bicycle to the local hardware store and told them my problem. They advised me what I had to do, and by that afternoon when my mom came home, she didn't even know what happened.
Growing up I tried to fix whatever I could at my mom's house. In 2004 I started working in a historic home, built in 1920, because a friend needed a hand. I later took over the project when he left for another job. Later, after working as a foreman for a drywall company (mainly in hospitals), I decided to return to my passion for historic homes after attending a "old house" conference, Restore Jax. I was inspired by an American Preservationeer to do good works. Shortly after, I joined an Ohio-based restoration company, but soon realized that I wanted to help restore my neighborhood. Most of my project sites are within a 2 miles radius from my own house. The first thing I noticed about every house were her windows-and to make a long story short, I am very passionate about window restoration and want to learn everything I can about them and maybe improve on that knowledge. I have been saving historic windows since 2008, professionally. It would be of great joy if I could advise, assist, or contribute anything to this wonderful trade and cause.

Hello,

My name is Steve Hartley and I have been in discussion with John about joining as the academic advisor for this project.

A little about myself. I am the founder and director of the historic preservation and green building programs programs at Savannah Technical College. Before coming to Savannah Tech, I had 10 years experience restoring buildings in Savannah and neighboring South Carolina, as well as in my hometown of Philadelphia.

The historic preservation program covers all manners of building preservation, from plaster to metals and everything in between. We currently have a class entitled HPR 1280: Doors, Windows, and Roofing which concentrates (obviously) on the restoration of those three building components. The green building program covers energy efficiency methods and testing, include thermal imaging and blower door testing.

I am very excited to develop standards in the preservation of historic windows and apply those standards to my classes. I am also happy to hear that a group has been formed to address, on a national level, this alarming trend. It always seems were fighting our own battles in our own areas.

My students are also very intrested in this project, and several have expressed to me their desire to join the summint. I am very happy to offer my services for this project to review any standards from an academic viewpoint. I am also happy to offer our assistance pertaining to facilities and/or work sites for additional testing.

Steve

John,

Coming into this a bit late I think, but no less enthusiastic. Started a window repair, rehab & restoration company 5 years ago. Old Home Rehab, Inc. in Kalamazoo, MI. Have saved & improved performance in hundreds of historic residence, commercial building, and non-historic older homes. Currently working on a 860 window project in downtown Kalamazoo, The Malborough Building. (local historic district building) Doing window rehab & adding new storm windows.

I am the past Chairman of the Kalamazoo Historic Preservation Commission and am currently a member of the Kalamazoo Historic District Commission & Board member of Old House Network through which I have provide workshops to lay home owner and contractors. I have a passion for matching performance with authenticity in older windows.

In a previous life, I have amassed 25 years managing, sales training, leadership and marketing experience with a leading Pharmaceutical company. All in all I am confident I can value to the mission. I would like to be included in any need the board has. I am ready to commit to the meeting.

Thanks,

Peter Carroll

Bill Robinson here in New Orleans.
I hope to add the hot/humid perspective and some ways to add weatherstripping to wood windows so air leakage is no longer an issue to replace.

Bill, welcome to the Standards project.

I think you would have a lot to offer due to your trades training experience. You could help guide the development of the Standards so that they will be useful for training situations.

Are there any formal industry standards that you use now in your training? How are you using them? How could they serve you better?

Hey there John. I would love to come down to KY and meet everyone. I will be glad to add anything I can, but it seems that I will probably be the least experienced.

Thanks,

Pete!

Yes, I want to get you involved. I just haven't had the time for a personal conversation. I formally invite you to be an Adviser and would like you to come to the Summit. Even if you have the least experience we need that point of view. This could be your assignment as an Adviser: What does the less experienced window specialist need from the Standards.

The registration deadline is the 15th, and your dates would be:

25th travel to Pine Mountain and arrive by 5:00pm
26th to 28th Summit
29th travel back home

Let me know if you have any questions by leaving a message here or by email.

Greetings from a slightly warm New Hampsherite.

I founded Winn Mountain Restorations in 2006 after years of working on my own old houses and have been restoring windows (and a few doors) ever since. A charter member of the New England Window Restoration Association, I am also a PTN member, life-time Timber Framer's Guild member, NH Preservation Alliance, National trust and a few others. 'Have presented at the Tradional Building conferences and PTN/IPTWs as well as taught at Old Washington and Pine Mountain Settlement School in Kentucky among other venues.

I cannot take the time from a very busy shop and so will miss the PMSS gathering but will be at the PTN conclave the following week in PA. Looking forward to some working documents for review and will comment as I am able.
