Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - HOMES - By Mike Moore

IT’S Jan­uary, and that means it’s time for the Win­nipeg Ren­o­va­tion Show, run­ning Jan. 15 to Jan. 17 at the RBC Con­ven­tion Cen­tre. This show has al­ways kicked off the new year for home ren­o­va­tions. and we lead the na­tion in that depart­ment. Man­i­toba is the only prov­ince where more money is spent on ren­o­va­tions than new home con­struc­tion on a con­sis­tent ba­sis. Win­nipeg has the third-old­est hous­ing stock in Canada, so home ren­o­va­tions are a very big part of our life­style. Nowhere else can you find this much prod­uct and ex­per­tise un­der one roof. The Win­nipeg Ren­o­va­tion Show is unique in that it pro­vides an av­enue for con­sumers to test the ren­o­va­tion mar­ket. The Ask a Ren­o­va­tor booth is staffed with pro­fes­sional Man­i­toba Home Builders’ As­so­ci­a­tion 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 15-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 brain of one of Man­i­toba’s finest ren­o­va­tors. Whether the job is big or small, whether it’s some­thing you’re com­mit­ted to or just think­ing about, whether you are a do-it-your­selfer or look­ing for pro­fes­sional help, this is the place to ad­dress your needs. Start your ren­o­va­tion off on the right foot with pro­fes­sional ad­vice. The show opens Fri­day at noon and con­tin­ues un­til 6 p.m. Sun­day. Bryan Baeumler is a spe­cial guest speaker on the life­style stage. Baeumler, of course, is a well-known HGTV host and best­selling au­thor. Baeumler will be speak­ing Fri­day at 7 p.m. and Satur­day at 2 p.m. It’s rush seat­ing, so get there early. Your ticket to the show gets you in to see him and all of the other pre­sen­ters. There is also a fab­u­lous raf­fle op­por­tu­nity at the show fea­tur­ing a $10,000 kitchen makeover cour­tesy of Spring­field Wood­work­ing. All pro­ceeds from the raf­fle go to Va­ri­ety, the Chil­dren’s Char­ity. For more in­for­ma­tion, go to
