Flashback February - House Restoration:
Philosophy, Principles and Q&A with Edwin Rowse, OAA, FRAIC, CAHP, RIBA
February 17, 2021
Hidden away on the South Shore of Prince Edward County, the charming and historical 1865 Moses Hudgin Log House is situated on the Hudgin-Rose Nature Reserve owned by The Nature Conservancy Canada (NCC). The South Shore Joint Initiative is responsible for upkeep and maintenance of the property. In summer 2021, initial conservation of the house will begin, under a plan developed by architect Edwin Rowse.
Edwin is a well-known conservation architect in Ontario who lives with his wife and cat in a heritage designated property just north of the South Shore Important Bird and Biodiversity area. Edwin will speak about the philosophy and principles of conservation and restoration underlying the work to the Hudgin House. He will also take participants questions about how these may apply to their own projects.
The county is home to hundreds of beautiful historical homes and the prospect of perfect “restoration” can intimidate even the keenest renovator. Edwin believes that a more relaxed yet principled approach to conservation and restoration can tell a more interesting and human story. Learn about the Hudgin House and ask Edwin your home restoration questions on Wednesday, February 17, 2021 at 7 pm on Zoom.
