It's time for Home Improvement

Written by Diana Nelson Jones on .

Spring is nigh, more or less, and we know that because Park Place/Regent Square are holding their annual home improvement workshop. We know that thanks to Marlene Green, a board member of the Greater Park Place Neighborhood Association.
On March 22, from 10a to noon, the seventh annual event sponsored by the Park Place association and the Regent Square Civic Association will be held at the Mifflin Avenue United Methodist Church, 905 Mifflin Ave., Regent Square. 
The workshop is free and open to the general public but the information will skew East End-centric, like many things in Pittsburgh these days.
Doors open at 9.30. The neighborhood groups are supplying complimentary coffee and bagels.
This year’s theme is “Exterior Restoration and Renovation: Maintaining Your Home’s Architectural Style.” 
Professionals will present information and a survey of historic housing styles in the East End. They will talk about site planning, landscaping, defining features and materials.
You can also meet individually with representatives from the Design Center from 11 to noon. If you want consultation, it will help if you bring photographs or drawings that feature your specific issues of interest.
