So, let’s talk about the Seattle Home Show! The Home Show was one week long, February 20th-28th. As always, it was overwhelming and a lot to see if trying to do it all in one day. This year I found that there were not a lot of companies showcasing their latest and greatest products. So if you went to the Home Show trying to find the new “it” product to include in the remodel of your home, you were probably disappointed. I noticed that there were a lot of remodeling companies, at least one or two every time I turned the corner. Many of them specializing in kitchens and baths, and eager to talk to you about your next remodeling project.
One company in particular that I found interesting as far as new quick and easy remodeling is Flying Dormer. The owner, who is originally from Holland, has adopted a remodeling concept from his country. He found that here in the United States our remodeling methods are not the most efficient. He offers pre-fabrication offsite to the customer’s specifications, and then transports the addition to the home where it is then lifted by crane onto the prepared location and installed in one day. The interior finish work is then completed on site. This method offers the customer a custom quality product without the disruption to their life. Now why didn’t we think of that!
Overall, the Home Show is a great way to get information from many businesses on your next home project in a little amount of time. Just by having a brief conversation with a few companies you can quickly determine if they offer the services that you are looking for. So, consider going to the Home Show if:
1) You are considering doing a big remodel, especially kitchens and baths
2) You need some fresh ideas for your new house or remodeling project, including landscape design
3) You want to find and possibly get bids, from several companies to do your remodeling project or build your new home
4) You are looking for the perfect hot tub that will fit 12 of your closest friends, have the perfect beer holder and has lights that change color to beat of the music on your iPod!
If you are interested in attending the Seattle Home Show, the next one will probably be in the fall. If you attended the home show last week, what were your thoughts about it?
