Event Description

Green Home Remodeling – One Room at a Time
Saturday, Feb 11 | 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Cost: FREE!
 
Whatever your reasons for remodeling, it makes good sense to use a green approach.  
 
The rewards of green remodeling are tangible. You’ll reduce your energy and water bills, save on materials and maintenance costs, improve the comfort of your home, and eliminate harmful toxins.
 
Whether you’re planning a major remodel, or just sprucing up a bathroom, every change you make to your home is an opportunity to use fewer resources and improve your family’s health.
This 1-hour workshop will take you from basic improvements you can do yourself to more extensive changes that you can do with a building professional’s help. You’ll learn how each room in your house can benefit from easy, cost-effective fixes and get answers to some of the most common questions about green remodels, including:
  • Where do I start?
  • Will it cost more?
  • If it’s green, will it still look good?
  • Will it really save me money in the long run?
Let our knowledgeable staff show you how to approach each of your design choices so you really can achieve your dream home – a beautiful, healthy home that conserves resources for future generations.
 
Light refreshments will be provided courtesy of Dolan's Lumber.
 
 
Pre-registration is required.
