Like many homes in Maine, ours is over one hundred years old and is a labor of love. Over the years we have invested in everything from the roof, furnace, sump pump, bathroom expansion, refinishing floors, plumbing heat to the second floor, new windows, building a deck, the list just goes on and on! I love watching remodeling shows and finding inspiration for what needs to be done around the house, so this weekend is heaven for me. The Maine Building and Remodeling Show is going on at the Cross Insurance Arena on Saturday from 10-5 and Sunday from 10-4. You name it, they got it, from the inside out and from top to bottom. From roofers to basement finishing, landscaping to interior design, you'll find the information, products and people you need to create a comfortable home.
