a zoom webinar

House Restoration: Philosophy, Principles and Q&A

with Edwin Rowse, OAA, FRAIC, CAHP, RIBA

Wednesday, February 17, 2021 

7 pm 

Nestled in the South Shore of Prince Edward County, the unique and historical 1865 Moses Hudgin Log House is situated on the Hudgin-Rose Nature Reserve owned by Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC). The Moses Hudgin Log House Restoration Committee, a sub-committee of the South Shore Joint Initiative, is responsible for the restoration of the House.  In 2021, initial restoration of the house will begin, under the direction of architect Edwin Rowse. 

Edwin is an internationally renowned restoration architect 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 restoration underlying the the work to 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 century homes and the prospect of perfect restoration can intimidate even the keenest renovator. Edwin believes that a softer and less exacting approach to restoration can tell a more interesting and human story.  This is your opportunity to learn about the Moses Hudgin Log House and get Edwin's answers to your own home restoration questions.
