  1. Roy and Kim Fox are dyed-in-the-wool preservationists who have meticulously rehabbed their 1884 home while also living in it and having real lives outside of scraping paint and refinishing wood. Their home is great, and they are fantastic human beings, and they love to share what they have learned.

    • Thanks for the great insight, Holly! Hope that they have a very successful event and impart some of that hard earned knowledge on others.
