Eastside Fixer-Uppers and the Seattle Home Show

For all of you home-fixer-uppers, the fall Seattle Home Show takes place this weekend, October 11-14th, at the Qwest Field Event Center.  With four days of seminars, and over 500 exhibitors, this is a great research opportunity in disguise. Where else can you find over 500 companies dying to give you advice about your home projects! If you’re skillful with your questioning, you’ll be able to extract a ton of how-to information from eager contractors trying to win you over with their expertise! Got a question about how to do something, this is the time and the place to ask!

So, get out those walking shoes–show hours are:

Thursday: 10:00 am to 8:30 pm
Friday: 10:00 am to 8:30 pm
Saturday: 10:00 am to 8:30 pm
Sunday: 10:00 am to 6:00 pm
