Anyone going to the NH Old House & Barn Expo?

Hey Everyone,
Wondering if anyone else is headed to the NH Old House & Barn Expo this weekend? I'll be there on Saturday, and I am really looking forward to it.

Hi Marissa,

I'll be standing in line when the doors open. It's been a good show in the past and I think it's a little bigger this year.

There's one coming your way in April. It's in Hartford CT. http://www.goodrichpromotions.com/histo ... index.html They did one last year in Sturbridge what was pretty good but doesn't seem to be as big as the one they do in Valley Forge PA.

The New England Window Restoration Alliance will be there in force. I will have a booth there as well as Dave Bowers of Olde Window Restorers and we will both be alternating with Jade in the demo area. Looking forward to seeing everyone!

DH and I really want to go, but we have to help with a funeral tomorrow. Maybe we'll still be able to squeeze it in.

Hi Mury,

Sorry to hear you couldn't make it. It was even better than last time. I learned some good information from the lecture on dating your house. I spent some time talking with Bob Pothier from First Period Colonial. He is a wealth of knowledge on 18th and early 19th century houses. I've used pictures from his website for ideas. http://www.firstperiodcolonial.com/ I modeled my dining room corner cabinets after ones he built.
