Older home care, energy efficiency, topic at annual House and Barn Expo

MANCHESTER, N.H. - Being more energy efficient in older homes, recycling and repurposing items are the themes of the upcoming New Hampshire Old House and Barn Expo.

This year's expo offers more than 100 exhibitors, lectures and demonstrations at the Center of New Hampshire Radisson Hotel in Manchester on March 24-25.

Attendees are encouraged to send photos of their barns to the New Hampshire Preservation Alliance in advance of the expo for a "Reading Your Barn" presentation, and to bring photos of their projects to share in "Old House and Barn Doctor" sessions.
