Nine windows from the Schifferdecker home were used at Bob Yapp’s Window Restoration and Weatherization Boot Camp, sponsored by the City of Joplin Historic Preservation Committee and Historic Murphysburg Preservation, on May 18-20, 2018. Eighteen workshop participants arrived early Friday morning on May 18 to learn how to safely remove the nine windows and transported them to the Empire Market, 931 E. Fourth Street, where they learned how to repair and restore the windows to their original state. The windows were then reinstalled at the Schifferdeckers home on Sunday, May 20. Bob Yapp is a nationally renowned expert in historic home preservation.
