Help us get on public television! Please join us in telling this story about an old house, the traditional craftsmen who came together to restore it, and the preservation of history.
The Craftsmen’s Journal has been working with Dave Adams and the guys for over a year now recording his Re-restoration. This venture started as a three minute clip we put together for the web, but now we are trying to take it to the next level. We would like to put together a 30-minute premiere episode to be aired on Portsmouth's cable channel PPMTV.
We've started a KickStarter campaign to help fund this first episode and are now reaching out to ask you to become a part of this project. If you are as passionate about the preservation and restoration of historic buildings as we are, we're sure you will appreciate what we are trying to do. All we ask is for you to share this link with your Facebook friends and, if you can, a small donation would mean so much.
Thank you for your time. We can't wait to get started!

The Craftsmen’s Journal
If you live in New England, you are surrounded by history.
Here at The Craftsmen's Journal, Dave Adams and Steve Roy look at the everyday things around us and shed new light on why things are the way they are.
Dave and Steve love learning from old houses, to take them apart, and discover how they are made. Old houses have stories to tell if you know where to look. The stories not only help us understand these old houses and the people who built them, but our culture and our heritage.
They have been called "craft historians" and "building archeologists," and can read the material evidence left behind in the old timbers and chips of paint. They are experts in woodworking, masonry, plastering, and paint analysis.
Dave and Steve use traditional techniques and tools in their restorations to achieve a level of historical accuracy and authenticity that makes their work indistinguishable from the original.
So join us here at The Craftsmen's Journal as we follow them on their latest adventure.
