Introducing Vintage Green
This February, Indiana Landmarks launches Vintage Green – an 18-month series of lectures and hands-on workshops demonstrating best practices in sustainable renovation and restoration. Based at a historic Queen Anne home rescued from foreclosure in South Bend, Vintage Green will demonstrate that sustainability and historic preservation can work hand-in-hand.
At the first session on February 11, the South Bend Office of Sustainability will offer tips on simple, cost-effective ways to cut energy costs in vintage homes. The talk will be offered at noon and again at 7 p.m. The first hands-on workshop follows on February 21, offering an in-depth immersion in conducting an energy audit of a home, including demonstration of a blower-door test.
