Experts from fields that include kitchen remodeling and floor laying furnish tips on domicile beautification, and home-security contractors share better anti-burglary strategies than coating valuables in a layer of sticky tar. Green thumbs browse 15 garden displays, checking out landscaping ideas and potential plant purchases, and a series of seminars lets showgoers jot down ideas for future renovations after making their way through the booths of more than 600 local vendors. John and Sherry—writers of the popular DIY blog Young House Love—will make an appearance, offering advice on layman-accessible room makeovers and Don Knotts-themed wing additions.
