This class is intended for people who are considering purchasing an older home and want to know how to identify and evaluate the main trouble spots. Participants learn how to complete a basic building assessment and how to determine whether signs of disrepair indicate a simple cosmetic problem or serious structural failure.
This class is in partnership with the Michigan Historic Preservation Network.
