Join Historic Newton at this two-part workshop, “How (Older) Houses Work” led by industry expert Peter Yost of BuildingGreen, Inc. Yost, who has been building, researching, teaching, and consulting on high performance homes for nearly 30 years, will be joined by historic preservation enthusiasts and older-home owners to explore the joys and challenges of preservation.

● Session 1 looks at common building problems, such as how heat and moisture interact. Yost will present building science “puzzles” and ask participants to work together to determine the cause of the problem.
