We're just coming to the end of the first set of classes on the Fort Worden Windows Restoration Project. The Port Townsend School of Woodworking has partnered with Fort Worden State Park and Peninsula College to offer an innovative way to get energy conservation projects completed. Prompted by the reciept of an ARRA (Stimulus) grant Kate Burke asked us to put on a series of courses to get the work completed. These courses have been free to the students. We've has some great crews from State Park Construction and Maintenance teams, the Washington Conservation Corps and the Veteran's Conservation. Local contractors and homeowners (from around Puget Sound) have added to their skills too.
This slideshow should give you an idea of the professionalism of the work and the enthusiasm of the students. Our thanks to Al McCleese for these great images.
