23rd annual Truckee home show set for Memorial weekend
TRUCKEE, Calif. — Are you getting ready to build or remodel your mountain home? Do you have a landscaping or redecorating project in mind?
Then make plans to attend the 23rd Annual Truckee Home and Building Show Saturday and Sunday, May 23-24, at Truckee High School.
Attendees will find everything they need to get your project off the ground. You can also ask questions of experts and learn about new advances in products and technology on the market today to make your home more efficient and comfortable.
“Now is the time to schedule your construction project,” says Pat Davison, executive director of the Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe. “The economy is improving, and construction activity has picked up over the last couple of years; with the increase in activity, costs are creeping back up too.
“Homeowners should take advantage of the competitive construction environment that was created during the slower economy while they still can.”
At the Home Show, you’ll see great ideas for remodeling kitchens and baths. You can shop for garage doors, siding, cabinets, counter tops, flooring, windows and doors.
You can also learn about the greenest technology for low voltage snowmelt systems. Look at log home packages, vacuum systems, window coverings and spas.
Learn the ins and outs of making decisions on heating and cooling, plumbing, electrical, painting, decking and roofing.
Talk to the experts in home efficiency and learn about solar systems and green building. Compare bear bins and find out why they are so important in the Sierra.
Discover the secrets to successful landscaping in the Sierra climate. While you are at it, shop for outdoor furniture that can hold up through the same extremes in temperature.
While touring the Home Show, be sure to check out the many displays offering home maintenance supplies and services.
The Truckee Home and Building Show is presented by the Truckee Donner Public Utility District, which will be on hand to answer questions about energy and water use.
PUD officials will teach you how to stay alive around electricity in the “LEARN or BURN” demonstration held at the show four times a day.
The PUD will also give away many energy saving devices, including free packages of CFLs (compact fluorescent light bulbs).
The event is from 10 a.m. 5 p.m. both days at Truckee High, located at 11725 Donner Pass Road. The $6 admission benefits the local schools.
