We attended the South Minneapolis Housing Fair on Feb 26. The weather was not too co-operative and the traffic at the home show was light.
The folks who did show up seemed to be interested in small bathroom remodels or makeovers and kitchen remodeling and makeovers. These kinds of jobs have been popular for at least the last 9 months. We have done 6 of these small bathroom makeovers since November and have done 2 kitchen makeovers in the same period.
I probably spoke with 9 or 10 families throughout the day. The questions we were most often asked related to two main topics: design questions, and questions about how to avoid making mistakes when doing a remodel.
We had the chance to use our new home show display that we spent the last 60 days planning and building. We have most of the kinks worked out now.
The girl scouts were out in force selling girl scout cookies – darn those things are addicting. I kept ducking behind my display when I didn’t think anyone was coming and grabbing a cookie or two from a box I bought.
