PreserveCast Ep. 17: Tricks of the Trade with The Craftsman Blog

By Preservation Maryland

This episode of PreserveCast features Scott Sidler of The Craftsmans Blog and Austin Home Restorations in Orlando, Florida, to discuss a range of topics, including Scott’s tips on restoring historic windows in your own home, as well as the story of how a man who moved to Orlando Florida to work for the mouse came to run one of the most successful historic home restoration and preservation websites.


Scott founded Austin Home Restorations in 2010 when he saw the need for a company dedicated to serve the specific needs of historic home owners in Central Florida. He is a graduate of Yestermorrow Design/Build School in Vermont where he studied historic preservation and has been restoring historic buildings since the late 1990s. He currently serves on the national board of the Window Preservation Alliance and the Orlando Historic Preservation Board. He is a third generation painter, plasterer, carpenter, master glazier and has a wide breadth of knowledge about historic design and construction techniques.
