Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - A LOOK AT RECENTLY SOLD HOMES IN AND AROUND WINNIP - By Mike Moore

TO­DAY and Sun­day are the last two days of the Kitchen Bath and Ren­o­va­tion Show at the RBC Con­ven­tion Cen­tre Win­nipeg. The show runs to­day from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sun­day from noon to 5 p.m. If Fri­day’s crowds are any in­di­ca­tion, this may be one of the more popular shows in years. The Kitchen and Bath show has al­ways kicked off the new year for home ren­o­va­tions, and Man­i­to­bans lead the na­tion in that depart­ment. Man­i­toba is the only prov­ince where more money is spent an­nu­ally on ren­o­va­tions than new-home con­struc­tion. Con­sid­er­ing Win­nipeg has the third-old­est hous­ing stock in Canada, home ren­o­va­tions are a very big part of our life­style. The Kitchen Bath and Ren­o­va­tion Show is unique in that it pro­vides a free av­enue for con­sumers to test the ren­o­va­tion mar­ket. The Ask a Ren­o­va­tor seg­ment of the Man­i­toba Home Builders As­so­ci­a­tion booth is staffed with pro­fes­sional RenoMark ren­o­va­tors who are avail­able to an­swer your ques­tions about a job you may be plan­ning or just dream­ing about. They are there to pro­vide free 20-minute con­sul­ta­tions to help steer you in the right di­rec­tion to­ward an en­joy­able and ex­cit­ing up­grade to your home. Just come to the show and you will be able to pick the brains of one of Man­i­toba’s finest ren­o­va­tors. Be­fore or after talk­ing to a ren­o­va­tor, ev­ery at­tendee has the op­por­tu­nity to visit some of the finest sup­pli­ers of goods, ma­te­ri­als and ser­vices that will greatly en­hance their home. Not just kitchens and bath­rooms, but ev­ery room in your house can ben­e­fit from the ex­per­tise on the show floor. Why drive all over town when the best ad­vice for all your needs can be found un­der one roof? Along with pre­sent­ing spon­sors All Cana­dian Ren­o­va­tions and Penta Spray Foam Sys­tems, we are proud to fea­ture Chef Rob Thomas on stage at 1 p.m. both days. We are also very pleased to be able to fea­ture de­sign ex­pert Ram­sin Khachi Satur­day at noon, also on the Life­styles stage. Tick­ets for the $10,000 Spring­field Wood­work­ing kitchen cabi­netry grand prize are be­ing sold by vol­un­teers from Va­ri­ety — the Chil­dren’s Char­ity. The Kitchen and Bath Ren­o­va­tion Show is to­day and Sun­day, so don’t miss your chance to see all of Man­i­toba’s best sup­pli­ers lo­cated in one con­ve­nient place, the RBC Con­ven­tion Cen­tre Win­nipeg. Tick­ets are avail­able at the door. Mike Moore is pres­i­dent of the Man­i­ty­oba Home Builders’ As­so­ci­a­tion
