On January 23, Chuck Baum from Colour Dynamics, and Verona Landmarks Preservation Commission members Jane Eliasof and Pat Hynes kick off the first session, which will cover the basics of planning and executing the restoration of an older home. The talk will be held from 10 a.m. to noon at the Charles Shultz House (Evergreens), which is at 30 North Mountain Avenue in Montclair. Other panel members will include Jeff Farrell from Cambridge Construction and Michael Margolies of Eclectic Architecture.

There will be three additional lectures as part of the series, “Your Old Home: Preserving, Restoring, and Sensitive Remodeling Your Home.” On February 27, the discussion will focus on common interior projects.
