Our first workshop of the spring hosted in our warehouse!

Courtney, one of our partners at Canton Ace Hardware, returns to demonstrate how to patch, troubleshoot, and repair holes in drywall.

Participants will learn how to prep, spackle & smooth drywall surfaces to conceal dents, nicks, nail holes, and even larger sized holes using a variety of materials readily available at The Loading Dock, Inc. or local hardware store.

Bring a lamp if you need help trouble-shooting!

Returning instructor Lawrence Oliva from Second Century Homes, LLC. will give attendees all the tips and tricks for working with reclaimed hardwood flooring. Participants will get to try their hand at prepping the flooring and then installing it with a pneumatic nail gun.
