Whew! It’s been a busy several weeks. We’re still working on a list of topics to address here. We plan to focus on the questions we hear most often from customers, and the projects that are in greatest demand. Any suggestions? Let us know.

In the meantime, we extend an invitation to visit Connor Remodeling & Design at the 48th annual Milwaukee/NARI Home Improvement Show. This is Wisconsin’s biggest home improvement and remodeling show, and it draws thousands of visitors each year.

Mark your calendar, because you don’t want to miss it: Feb. 11-14 at the Wisconsin Exposition Center at State Fair Park. Doors open at 11 a.m. the first two days and 10 a.m. on the weekend.

Connor Remodeling & Design will be in Booth 219, located near the main entrance. Stop by and say “Hi,” then take in a bevy of seminars and demonstrations by home improvement experts. If some look familiar, it’s because you might have seen them on HGTV!

Similarly, if you enjoy good food – who doesn’t, right? – be sure to catch the cooking demonstration stage. There might be a few recognizable faces there, too. Some prominent local chefs will be working their culinary magic, along with national cooking celebrities from FOX and Bravo.

The show has more than 300 exhibitors, so allow plenty of time to take it all in. This year’s theme is “Put a Little Love in Your Home” which, while encouraging, doesn’t quite sum it all up. We suggest that you put a lot of love into your home, so that it can be a place of true comfort and enjoyment.

Here’s a hint: Go to the show’s web site and get a coupon for $2 off admission. The link is near the bottom of the page.

We are very pleased and proud to have received a first-place award for “Best Show Booth” at the MBA Home Building & Remodeling Expo in January. Above all, we appreciated the many people who stopped by to chat or bounce ideas off us.

We hope to meet many more at the Milwaukee/NARI show. These events are your chance to really learn what’s out there and, hopefully, expand the possibilities for your home. It’s your space – make it fit your dreams!
