A Field Course in Old Barns
with Les Fossel
Please note: This course will adhere rigorously to all Covid guidelines in effect during the period of the course
This is a course for people who have an old barn (that perhaps needs repairs), want an old barn, or just love old barns! The emphasis will be on practical ways to maintain your old barn at an affordable cost. The first session is in the classroom. After that, meetings will be held in the old barns of class members. There will be as many sessions as are required to visit the barns of class members who want their barns visited (by 12 students or less – as necessary under state guidelines).
The last class will be a potluck supper at the instructor’s house, where class members can see the instructor’s cabinetmaking shop and barns, and delve into his reference library on early buildings (one of the very best in Maine).
NOTE: Following the first class, the day and time of future classes will be determined by class members in a way to accommodate as many individual schedules as possible.
Les Fossel is one of Maine’s foremost experts on early buildings. His award-winning business has specialized in preserving our early buildings since 1975. He has lectured throughout Maine and the Northeast, including as a faculty member for the University of Southern Maine. More information on his business is available at: www.oldhouserestoration.com.
