Winning and the Old House and Barn Expo

Everyone who attends the Old House and Barn Expo is a winner, right? Because you gain information, contacts and inspiration.  The gathering is also a special chance to meet New Hampshire authors and advisors on preservation and place, passionate craftspeople, and like-minded folks.

Check out these other Expo-only opportunities to win big for old house and barn owners and enthusiasts

Bid on custom kitchen cabinetry (photo below) valued at approximately $17,000, generously donated by long-time Preservation Alliance sponsor and supporter Vintage Kitchens. On display at the Expo. All bidders will need to exceed a $1,500 minimum.  More information here

Also, take a chance to win a small timber frame constructed by members of the Timber Framers Guild during the show. We’ve heard from past Expo timber frame winners that they are enjoying them as a sugar shack (photo below), a back yard get-away that features a hot tub, and (more routinely) as utility sheds. Tickets will be sold at the Expo for $5/each or 5 for $20.

You can also bid on a set of old handhewn beams, mostly hemlock, from an old post and beam house that was torn down after a fire.  Some of the timbers have some notching, also some holes with pegs.  Email projects@nhpreservation.org if you want specs or other questions answered before the Expo. Donated by a member of the Preservation Alliance.

The announcement of these winners will be Sunday, March 25 afternoon at the Expo. You need not be present to win.

All Expo attendees will also be entered to win door prizes of memberships, books and other preservation-related items.  Scavenger hunt participants will also be eligible for small prizes.

All proceeds support the work of the NH Preservation Alliance.
