Fall Home Show Moves To Scheels Arena Sept. 27-28, Features ‘kitchen Magician’

The Fall Home Show, hosted by Home Builders Association of Fargo-Moorhead, will be Sept. 27-28 at its new home: Scheels Arena. Hours are noon – 8 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Saturday. Now in its 24th year, the Fall Home Show will display a wide array of exhibits under one roof. The event’s sponsors include Budget Blinds of Fargo, Luxury Bath of Fargo, CenturyLink and LP Building Products.

The 2013 Fall Home Show’s featured speaker will be Paul F. Ryan, the Kitchen Magician, offering seminars both Friday and Saturday Sept. 27-28.

Featured speaker is Paul F. Ryan, a nationally recognized home improvement expert. Known as the “kitchen magician,” his seminars both days of the show feature cost-effective kitchen improvements that will bring years of enjoyment and a nice payday when it comes time to sell. Ryan has remodeled hundreds of kitchens through his work as television show host on both the DIY and TLC cable networks, and off-camera as a licensed building contractor in the Twin Cities.

The show also features a historic home expert: Donovan D. Rypkema is principal of Place Economics, a Washington, D.C.-based real estate and economic development-consulting firm. The firm specializes in services to public and nonprofit sector clients who are dealing with downtown and neighborhood commercial district revitalization and the reuse of historic structures. His seminar (Saturday only) will be geared to engender pride in owners of older homes, and preservation of historic homes, while providing practical tips for historic home owners.

See booths featuring building industry companies including general contractors, flooring, siding, spas, windows, water purification, decks, heating/air conditioning, interior decorating and design, kitchen and bath design, cabinetry, plumbing, garages, basements and more.
