"David, I live in Northern Utah, not too far from the Bay area, so if you ever have a training, I would be very interested in attending. I also hope the window summit can help people to see the value in their historic windows. It's a constant…"

Hi David, thanks for joining, HEP and the Historic Home group, especially. Preserving existing, historic fenestration while reducing thermal loss is a big interest of mine. Please feel free to launching any discussion threads. Part of our mission here is to come up with illustrations of best practices for doing stuff, and a discussion thread is often a good way to get one or evern several best practices out there and discussed and ultimately solidified. Thanks again!
