Remodeling expo coming downtown
There’s nothing like getting an early start on spring — or at least thinking about it.
The Grand Rapids Remodeling and New Homes Show will take place Jan. 11-13 at DeVos Convention Center, 303 Monroe Ave. NW. Show times are noon-9 p.m., Friday, 10 a.m.-9 p.m., Saturday, and 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Sunday.
The expo features a designer showcase with completely finished rooms by area designers and furniture retailers, a “construction zone” for children’s activities, seminars, panels, exhibitors’ booths and more.
Seminars by local and national experts on the Build-It Stage explore the various stages of planning a project through financing and contracting, DIY considerations and the latest products and innovations.
Attendees can receive hands-on training in electrical work, drywall repair, ceramic tiling and plumbing from the experts at Grand Rapids-based Home Repair Services, as part of the show’s DIY Homeowner Series.
Amy Matthews also will make appearances on the Build-It Stage throughout the show. Matthews is the host of “Renovation Raiders” on HGTV and also has been featured on numerous television shows and in newspapers.
Tickets are available at the door or online.
The Grand Rapids Remodeling Show is hosted by the Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids.
