Top Tips to Make Your Home Show Experience Last Year Round

The Seattle Home & Garden show may be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait until the next show to start planning some home improvement projects or getting ideas for everything that has to do with the home and garden.  Here are some tips on how to make your home show experience last year round.

  • Did you get a lot of information from exhibitors when you visited the show?  If so, start organizing that information into what your top 5 projects or ideas for the home will be.  

  • Research those companies online and/or in person to see if they are a good fit for you.  

  • Finally, if you decide to reach out, let them know you saw them at the Seattle Home & Garden Show!

Will Thomas Designs Launches the Cool Room Concept, a New Building Design Service for Dealing with Weather Extremes

Certified building designer and show exhibitor Will Thomas of Will Thomas Designs is known for older home design services and his seamless additions that look like they are original to the home. At the Seattle Home & Garden Show, he is introducing a new design service to help homeowners deal with weather extremes:  the Cool Room Concept.  Emphasizing low-cost ways on how to deal more effectively with extreme weather, the Cool Room Concept focuses on everything from insulation and passive heating/cooling (such as adding porch overhangs), to transforming basements – often the part of the home least affected by temperature outside - into living spaces that can comfortable handle extreme hot or cold weather.  

The Cool Room Concept can be successively applied to almost any home - each according to the existing configuration of the structure. Sometimes the concept works better as part of a larger addition/remodel project, sometimes it works fine with an existing house layout, with very minor changes inside.
