Deconstructing and Moving a Historic Home

Posted on September 1, 2015 at 11:00am 0 Comments

This spring in New Orleans I hosted “True Tales of Haunted Home Performance,” at the Home Performance Coalition National Home Performance Conference. I was joined in this true storytelling event by seven home energy pros, who contributed their real-life stories.

Tom, why did you include Mentors in the name of the group you started?  I ask because none have replied to some questions I raised a year ago.  Do you suppose my hunch about trade secrets was correct?

Hi Tom, thank you for contacting me.

I am interested. My full case study is online at I have some refinements I will be adding soon.

Thanks for your interest,
