Preservation Network - Kitchen Renovation Tips - September 12th

PRESERVATION NETWORK, September 12th @ 10am

 Reimagining Kitchens in a Historic House

 Knox Heritage presents the next installment of its monthly series Preservation Network on Saturday, September 12 at 10:00 a.m. Preservation Network is held at Historic Westwood, 3425 Kingston Pike. Parking is at Laurel Church of Christ, 3457 Kingston Pike. It is free and open to the public.

Preservation Network’ September session features Connie Cavanaugh with Standard Kitchen & Bath, who will discuss kitchen renovation tips in a historic home. Remodeling a kitchen can be a challenging and costly endeavor. Renovating a kitchen in an older house can come with even more obstacles and uncertainty. This workshop will touch on a variety of kitchen design topics including, assessing needs and function in a modern-era kitchen, tips for embracing troublesome openings and choosing a style that is timeless for older homes.

Connie Cavanaugh has a long history as a designer with Standard Kitchen & Bath beginning in 1992. She received her interior design education with a degree from The University of Tennessee in Knoxville and has taken numerous National Kitchen & Bath Association courses, as well as serving on the board of the local NKBA chapter. Connie has been in the design related business since 1978.

Preservation Network is a series of free workshops held once every month on the second Saturday. Many people have dubbed it the “support group for owners of old homes,” and in many ways this is true. In a relaxed round-table setting, the workshops presents guest speakers who are specialists in windows, flooring, roofing, stained glass, tile, plumbing, electrical, and more. Other guest speakers include those in real estate sales or appraisals, or city codes and zoning officials discussing historic overlays and building requirements.
