Drafty Windows? High fuel bills? Come to a workshop and help us make low-cost insulating window inserts, custom-built to fit your home’s windows! These low-cost, attractive window inserts function as snug-fitting indoor storm windows to keep out drafts and help you stay more snug and cozy, while using less fuel.
The Guilford and Brattleboro Energy Committees, in conjunction with Window Dressers, a non-profit organization based in Rockport, Maine, will hold our Community Build in Brattleboro over 5 days from October 29th to November 2nd at the Winston Prouty Center. At the build you’ll be taught one of the simple steps in the assembling of the inserts, and working together as a group we are able to keep the insert prices very low, just to cover materials. As a general guideline, plan to come for one 4-hour shift for every 3 inserts you’ve ordered. There are 2 shifts each day with lunch provided for everyone in between. There’s all kinds of tasks for all kinds of volunteers–something for everyone.
How does it work?
- The first step is to sign up for inserts at WindowDressers.org.during the month of September and until October 6th at the latest.
- Once you sign up for as many inserts as you’re interested in, go to Community Builds on the menu and scroll down until you see the Brattleboro build in the Vermont section. Click on SignUp.com to put yourself onto volunteer shifts right then, or we’ll follow up with you to see when you’d like to come.
- Next, you’ll be contacted by our measuring team, and a pair of local volunteer measurers will visit your home at a mutually agreed upon time to take precision measurements of your windows. The parts for the inserts will be pre-cut to spec at Window Dressers in Maine so they will fit snugly and be easy to install.
- The inserts will be assembled over the days of our build by our team of volunteers, including you!
Payment is made by check at the time of measuring, (or can be made by card on line if necessary.) There is subsidy available for those who qualify for programs such as LIHEAP and SNAP benefits, so that some of our recipients can receive inserts at no cost, or what they are able to contribute. See FAQs on the website. We also need folks who can volunteer to be part of our build, even if you don’t need any inserts! For more information and to sign up for inserts, go to WindowDressers.org or call Nancy Detra at 802-779-1006.
We’re warming homes – helping the environment – building community.
