The Fall Home Improvement & Remodeling Expo 2017


We find homeowners believe autumn a perfectly good time to get started on a project.  The busyness of the back-to-school season is over and the holidays are near yet distant enough as for the pressures not to be daunting.  The weather of course is still inviting.  In our 9th year, this growing bi-annual expo in Lake County attracts area homeowners with an array of creative home projects needing solutions, experts, and design ideas.   Our Lake County shows have a loyal crowd of do-it-yourself-ers that come to scope potential projects.  Our goal is to provide an easy, comfortable way for homeowners and contractors to discuss possibilities face-to-face in a positive buying environment.
