Win­nipeg Ren­o­va­tion Show on now

Winnipeg Free Press - Section G - - THE GREEN PAGE - By Mike Moore

TO­DAY and Sun­day are the fi­nal two days of the Win­nipeg Ren­o­va­tion Show at the RBC Con­ven­tion Cen­tre. The show runs to­day from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sun­day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. This 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 on ren­o­va­tions than new home con­struc­tion on a con­sis­tent ba­sis. Win­nipeg has the third old­est hous­ing stock in all of Canada and home ren­o­va­tions are a very big part of our life­style. The Win­nipeg Ren­o­va­tion Show is unique in that it pro­vides a free av­enue for con­sumers to test the ren­o­va­tion mar­ket. The Ask a Ren­o­va­tor sec­tion of the Man­i­toba Home Builders As­so­ci­a­tion booth is staffed with two pro­fes­sional RenoMark ren­o­va­tors 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 to­wards an en­joy­able and ex­cit­ing upgrade to your home. Stop by the show and you will be able to pick the brains of some 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 a pro­fes­sional to help, this is the per­fect place to start. Whether you have cre­ated de­tailed plans, scratched out some lines on the back of a cock­tail nap­kin or just have some thoughts, bring them along to the Ask a Ren­o­va­tor booth. Start your ren­o­va­tion off on the right foot with pro­fes­sional ad­vice. Don’t miss HGTV star Bryan Baeumler to­day at 2 p.m. for what prom­ises to be a ter­rific pre­sen­ta­tion. The Life­style Stage also fea­tures nu­mer­ous other ex­perts through­out the day, to­day and to­mor­row. You can also en­ter to win a com­plete kitchen makeover from Spring­field Wood­work­ing val­ued at $10,000. Tick­ets for the grand prize are be­ing sold by vol­un­teers from Va­ri­ety — The Chil­dren’s Char­ity. Don’t miss your chance to see all of Man­i­toba’s best sup­pli­ers and ren­o­va­tors lo­cated con­ve­niently un­der one roof this week­end.
