Our 2010 Preserving Your Old House program uses Historic Seattle’s newly purchased building, Washington Hall, as a “get dirty” space to demonstrate how to repair plaster work, refinish wood work and paint, and repair windows. 

 On March 13, Historic Seattle presents Steve Irish of Lux Interiors, who  has undertaken plaster repair and plaster restoration in the Seattle area for twenty years and is an expert on repairing lath and plaster in older buildings. During this overview, he will cover a variety of plaster issues, such as cracks, holes, veneer de-lamination, damaged moldings, texture matches and re-plastering from the studs up.

 Future demonstrations will focus on preparation of surfaces and painting and on wood window repair. For more information consult Historic Seattle’s website
