Home Remodeling Fair Seeks Ugliest Room In The West Metro

Do you have the baddest bathroom in the west metro? The cruddiest kitchen in the county? The 2015 West Metro Home Remodeling Fair is looking for ugly rooms that need to be rescued.  “Operation Rescue Room,” sponsored by the West Metro Home Remodeling Fair, is a contest that will put $1,000 in the hands of the homeowner whose room is voted most in need of help by visitors to this year’s fair. Last year’s winner used her $1,000 prize to help transform her basement bathroom, which needed rescuing.

To enter, contestants must submit one photo of their room along with a 100-word description of the intended project. Complete rules and entry forms are available at www.HomeRemodelingFair.com/Rescue. Deadline to enter is Feb 15.

Judging will take place at the West Metro Home Remodeling Fair Sunday, Feb 22. Contestants must be present to win. The Fair will be from 10:30 am to 3:30 pm at Eisenhower Community Center, 1001 Hwy 7, Hopkins (one mile west of the Hwy 7 and 169 interchange). Admission is free.

The West Metro Home Remodeling Fair is a multi-city effort to boost housing conditions throughout the western suburbs. It will feature exhibitors, free seminars and demonstrations, and an “Ask the Pro” booth. Exhibitors include architects, landscapers, designers, electricians, roofers, lenders, city inspectors, and more. Architects and interior designers at the “Ask the Pro” booth will offer no-obligation advice (bring your photos, sketches, and questions). Food concessions and children’s activities will be available in the cafeteria.
