Heritage Village event looks at the realities of restoring historic buildings

Some Door County men who've bought and restored historic buildings in Door County will share their restoration realities with people who dream of doing the same thing.  White Lace Inn owner Dennis Statz and architect Henry Isaksen will host a “Restoration Roundtable” at the Heritage Village at Big Creek June 29th.   The open discussion is designed to answer questions from those attending.  Isaksen says anyone who buys a historic property and wants to put on an addition matching the time period should learn that honesty is the best policy, especially if their plan is to eventually sell it.

 

 

While the goal of restoration is to keep a property as true to its original construction as possible, buyers need to consider utility upgrades as a natural progression for the structure.  Dennis Statz also says when budgeting for the project expect the unexpected.

 

 

The “Restoration Roundtable” will be held 1:00 PM Saturday, June 29th at Heritage Village at Big Creek on Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay.
