All work will include the use of historic tools and techniques and modern instruments, equipment, and materials to complete a robust and active work schedule.

Projects can include window and door restoration; millwork replication and fabrication; structural repairs and timber-framing; exterior envelopes; wood, slate, and metal roofing. Examples of tasks for participants include but are not limited to: measuring and cutting boards; simple framing or roofing work; ability to measure, cut, or install wood components of historic structures using on-site measurements, verbal directions, drawings, and specifications.

Participants must be able to stand or kneel for long periods and will be required to climb ladders, work from scaffolding or platforms, work on uneven or angled surfaces, and/or be able to work in confined spaces such as those found beneath buildings.
