Brick + Beam often offers trainings onsite, at homes and businesses that need a little work. In-process rehab projects are also where we like to host social events for building rehabbers to meet each other. We invite you to consider hosting a hands-on workshop, social gathering, or BOTH! To get a better idea of what you’re signing up to host, please explore past events! Check out past workshop listings, and social events like our fixer upper supper club & fireside chat listing on our events page. Please read more below, and fill out the interest form(s) that feel(s) like the best fit! Please note, proposed location MUST be in Detroit, Hamtramck, or Highland Park.
B+BD works with tradespeople to lead hands-on workshops: It’s especially valuable to host these onsite, and to learn these skills while working on an actual structure!
Hosts should be excited about having novices work on their property, with the understanding and expectation that while we will do a little work, we likely won’t be checking off any large to-dos off your rehab checklist. This is an especially good opportunity for a rehabber who also wants to learn a skill, and would like to learn it while working on their own property! Older, historic homes and small commercial projects are ideal, and must be located in Detroit, Hamtramck, or Highland Park.
Potential Hands-on Workshops: Plaster Repair, Window Restoration, Painting, Weatherization, Walk Through Inspections, and more!

Fixer Upper Supper Club & Other Social Gatherings:
We know to keep getting the work done, it’s really important to have a community of rehabbers to share experiences with and bounce ideas off of! We love to host these events at in-process or recently completed rehabilitation projects.
Hosts should have been an active part of the property rehab, be open to giving a tour of the project, be open to sharing successes *and failures* of the work, and ready to answer questions about the process. Older, historic homes and small commercial projects are ideal, and must be located in Detroit, Hamtramck, or Highland Park.
Potential Social Gatherings: Fixer-Upper Supper Club, Other location specific meet-ups like this Fireside Chat
