2014 Home Improvement & Remodeling Expo “Extras”
Let the countdown begin! There are only five more days to go until the debut of the 39th Annual HBA Home Improvement & Remodeling Expo. Last week I gave a sneak peak of the vendors and this week it’s all about the “Expo Extras.”
With over 90 different vendors displaying their products, you may need a place to stop and rest your feet as you fill out your honey-do list for 2014. What better way to do so than at one of our many seminars offered throughout the event.
On Friday we have our Certified Aging in Place Specialist, Tile Meister giving a presentation about how you can make your home assessable and safe. Tri River Area Extension Office will give you all the information you need on what steps to take to get your lawn and garden ready for spring.
Throughout the three days we also have informative presentations by:
The Brickyard: From a DIY retaining wall and installing a paver patio to tasting the difference between a pellet grill and a propane grill. You will get all the ideas you need to make your living space extend to the outdoor space of your dreams regardless of your budget.
Energywise Consultants: Want to learn more about heating your home and your water with solar energy? Thinking about building a new home and wanting to learn more about the benefits of building a more comfortable home that is safer and energy efficient? These are the sessions for you.
Atlasta Solar: Whether you are purchasing a new home, remodeling your current home, or wanting to cut costs at your business, learn how to capture all of this Colorado sun and reduce your overhead.
Foundation Repair of Western Colorado: Think you are having foundation failure or want to learn how to avoid it? Join them as they give you the tools you need to protect your home’s foundation, and what to do if it is already failing.
G.J. Gardner Homes: Thinking about building a new home and want to learn more about the process? Join this session to get all of your questions answered including financing and 2-10 Home Buyers Warranty.
FUN FOR THE KIDS:
On Saturday you will hear the tapping of hammers and sounds of laughter as kids are able to build a wooden birdhouse with the folks from Lowe’s! On Sunday, join the volunteers from the John McConnell Math & Science Center as they show you how fun Science can be.
All Seminars and kids events are included in your expo admission.
Custom Home Tour:
After you enjoy the show, it’s time to hit the open road and enjoy our Custom Home Tour. In between the winter frost, these builders were breaking ground and doing what they do best: building beautiful homes. It is our great pleasure to provide you with an up close and personal look at the quality of construction and individual care taken by the professional builders, trade contractors, and designers living right here in our community. This year we are excited to bring you eight beautiful homes built by On Track Builders, Pauls Residential Construction, Zag Built, Copper Creek Builders, G.J. Gardner Homes, Davidson Homes and Senergy Builders. Located throughout the valley, these homes range in size from 1500 sq. ft. to a little under 3,000 sq. ft. (and that doesn’t count the unfinished basement). From traditional to contemporary, there is something for everyone. Enjoy custom features such as surround sound and wireless networking, energy efficiency (including solar), detailed trim work, natural stone, large master baths and even a dog spa. These professionals will be on hand to answer questions and be an integral part of designing, building and making a house your home. Whether you are looking to purchase a new home, get ideas for your current one or you just want to dream, this tour is sure to please.
The official Home Improvement & Remodeling Expo program will be inserted in the March 5 issue of The Daily Sentinel.
Save the date and join us for the show taking place March 7-9 at Two Rivers Convention Center. We hope to see you there!
