Lakewood Alive to host Free Workshop

James Morrissey

Have you ever wondered what it takes to renovate your kitchen let alone your whole house? Lakewood Alive is hosting a workshop where you can learn the basics and the ins and outs of home self-improvements. With major help from Cleveland Lumber, this workshop will dive into the making of steps and address common stair repairs. At the end they want you to leave with the confidence and mindset of doing something on your own.

The other portion of the workshop will focus on materials (wood versus composite and brick), as well as routine maintenance to keep your home’s steps in good repair. Attendees will have opportunities to ask questions regarding exterior step repair, and other home improvement projects they plan to undertake.

Lakewood Alive’s “Knowing Your Home” program is now in its sixth year. Each year the event is growing, drawing hundreds of attendees annually. The Workshop is free so funding is limited and donations are generously accepted. Lakewood alive also encourages people to bring canned foods or other non-perishable items for donation to the Lakewood Community Services Center.

We talked to LHS construction student Jared Yocabet and asked if he thought the workshop was a good idea? Yocabet would go on to say, “I think it a cool thing what Lakewood is doing, most people don’t know much about self-home improvement but its easy and it can save you a lot of money.”
