Up, Down, Out or New? – Class presented by live-work-play Feb. 28

Learn how to analyze your home for additions, remodels or building a new structure.  You may have lived in your home for a long time or recently purchased it. You love the neighborhood but your home could function better for you and could better reflect your lifestyle. How do you go about changing it? What should you consider?

In this class we will discuss some of the decision parameters for adding on, remodeling within the existing structure, considering both, and building a new structure. Architect Sheri Newbold, owner of live-work-play, brings twenty years of design experience to this interactive seminar. Bring information with you: age and size of your home; how long you have lived there; what you love about it; what is not working; and what you think you need.

Up, Down, Out or New? – Saturday, Feb 28, 10 a.m. to noon;  Room 6, Phinney Center, 6532 Phinney Avenue North in Seattle. $20 for PNA members; public $25. Click here for details and to register.

Time to Explore and Dream at the Phinney Home Design & Remodel Fair

It’s the start of a new year and the perfect time to begin exploring possibilities and move your dreams forward by building an addition or considering a remodel of your home.  The annual Phinney Center Home Design & Remodel Fair will be held Sunday, January 25, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Phinney Center Blue Building, 6532 Phinney Avenue North in Seattle.

Live-work-play will be in Room 6 with news, information and photographs of our projects. We’ll share ideas, answer questions and get you on the road to fulfilling those dreams.

In addition, the PNA Home Design and Remodel Fair is a chance to meet dozens of local contractors, suppliers, designers, landscape professionals, non-profit groups, and permitting agencies. From the Fair’s website: “This year’s theme is Get Connected, featuring technological solutions to make your home smarter, automated or more efficient. You’ll have an excellent chance to  meet those who are leading these innovations forward and helping to create a  whole new category of home improvement.”

Many of the presentations focus on the Get Connected theme; we’re personally interested in SNUPI Technologies presentation at 11:50 a.m. about “smart homes” and Fusion 9’s topic on “control systems and energy monitoring” in the afternoon. Presentations on sustainability and green building will also be offered. Check out the full schedule here. Presentations will be held in Room 3 and are 25 minutes in length with Q & A.

Tickets are available at the door; $4 for PNA Members, $6 for general public and kids 12 and under are free. You can also get a two-for-one coupon. Click here for more info and details on the Fair. It will be a great day to gather ideas, get your questions answered and start planning the dream. We’ll see you there!

SAVE THE DATE: Sheri will be presenting a class on Saturday, February 28, 10 a.m. at Phinney Center. Up, Down, Out or New? Learn more.
