Join the Des Moines Rehabbers Club to meet other old-building enthusiasts, trade advice, learn a new skill, and get inspired!


The best way to get involved is to become a member!  Paid membership to the Des Moines Rehabbers Club will support our ongoing educational and hands-on activities.  Additional membership benefits will include a discount program at local building material suppliers (currently in development).  While our general meetings are (and will always remain) free and open to the public, other events may be members-only.
