Invisible Additions: Increasing Space, Minimizing Impacts

Saturday, May 1, 2010 10:00 am–12:00 pmMembers: $13General Public: $18 Preregister at:  http://www.visitahc.org/content/invisible-additions-increasing-space-minimizing-impacts Local and regional planning goals emphasize the need for increased population density thereby putting pressure on our older and traditional neighborhoods—places that hold much of the City’s historic fabric. Homeowners, architects, builders, and developers have responded to this need, but often there are no specific guidelines or it is viewed as a far easier solution to just demolish and build something new. Fortunately, not everyone sees it that way. This panel discussion will bring together architect John Perkins of Perkins Architectural and builder Eric Eaton of Eaton Construction, along with Michael Musumeci of Space Down Under and a City of Portland building inspector to discuss how you can significantly increase living space in older homes and leave the original character intact, all the while limiting the visible impacts on surrounding neighborhoods.   Sponsored by Craftsman Design and Renovation   .............
