2020 COMMUNITY BUILDS

WindowDressers is doing its part to protect public health by suspending its operations through the end of 2020. We look forward to getting back to the work of building insulating window inserts, and building community, as soon as it is safe to do so. Place your order today to reserve a place at your closest 2021 Community Build.

WindowDressers Insulating Window Inserts are built at “Community Builds” across Maine and Vermont, from August to January. Volunteers come together to assemble the inserts over several days. No special skills are necessary and every simple job is taught on-site by our experienced volunteers.

This page currently features the locations that hosted Community Builds in 2019. These locations might change in our 2021 season. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a build in your community! Email: info@windowdressers.org.
