PNA Home Remodel Fair on Sunday

January 28th, 2011 · No Comments

The Phinney Neighborhood Association’s annual Home Remodel Fair is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. this Sunday, with 90 exhibitors, from contractors to architects, interior designers and permitting specialists.

Admission to the 14th annual Home Remodel Fair is $6 for PNA members, $9 for the general public. Children 12 and under are free.

Many of these professionals are from our neighborhood or nearby, and have completed work in our area. Click here for a list of all the exhibitors, and here for a list of presentations.

Talk to architects who can help you design a remodel or an entirely new home, contractors who can help you make those plans a reality, consultants and trades people who can help you think about ways to increase the efficiency and comfort of your home, industry professionals with expertise on the latest building codes and permitting regulations, landscape designers who can help you create plans for the garden of your dreams, and other professionals who will be on site to discuss energy audits, interior design, cabinetry, electrical, building supplies, flooring, solar energy and financing options for your remodel or building project.

The Mini-B passive house will be open for tours. The 300-square-foot backyard cottage is on display in the PNA’s lower parking lot for the next six months. It is designed to showcase extremely energy efficient building practices.

Update: The Mini-B is featured in this week’s edition of the Seattle Channel’s “City Stream.” Host Lowell Deo stands in front of and inside the Mini-B for all his stand-ups throughout the show, but you’ll see a little tour of the inside at 8:53 into the show, and an interview with the architect at 15:14.
