People who attend will have the opportunity to talk with licensed remodelers about home remodeling projects.  The projects may be small handyman projects all the way to major home renovations. Attendees may bring a picture of the room they would like to have remodeled or you can bring your plans and have the opportunity to talk with a remodeler. Remodelers will be present who specialize in green remodeling.

Attendees will have the opportunity to see products and services for remodeling projects.  Kitchens, baths, flooring, countertops, windows and doors are just a few examples of products displayed at Warehouse Row. 

Organizers said, "You can come grab lunch and talk with various vendors.  You can come in the afternoon and have plenty of time to talk with a remodeler or company about your project.  Come join us after work and then go visit a nearby restaurant for dinner."
