Residents’ Workshop

Activity Description

Unfortunately, access to the workshop for do-it-yourself projects cannot be offered, due to very limited working space as well as liability issues relating to use of the power tools.The Residents’ Workshop, staffed by experienced resident volunteers, offers “Harry Homeowner”-type restoration or repair of personal property for residents and staff. The labor is performed gratis, with the “customer” billed only for parts and material at cost. Of course, persons who are served by this facility may show their appreciation by making a discretionary donation to the Fairhaven Residents’ Association, commensurate with the nature and extent of the services provided.

The workshop is normally open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon for drop-off or pick-up of items and/or to consult the volunteer staff on the work that is or was necessary. To ensure orderly conduct of business, it is strongly recommended that a specific appointment be scheduled by calling the workshop at extension 3634.


The workshop is located on the ground floor of the Beasman Center. Proceeding east to the end of the “library entrance” corridor (atrium and Beauty Shop on the right), turn left and then right at the next corridor. Entrance to the workshop (identified as such by a wall plaque) is the second windowed door on the left.
