Adding Value to Your Home and Community

Spring is just around the corner and Staffski is sure that everyone is gearing up for the home projects that they have been scheming about all of this long winter. Well, there are two must-attend events this month that, as homeowners and enthusiastic remodelers, you might want to plan to attend. BLOGSKI has already posted about Curb Appeal, which takes place on March 19. One week later (March 26), Patrick Dowd (Council District 7), is collaboratively producing a workshop on adding value to your home. The partners for the event are Lawrenceville United, the Morningside Area Community Council and the Stanton Heights Neighborhood Association. From the event page —

Have you considered making some improvements to your home – a new retaining wall, colorful landscaping, energy-saving insulation or even a new bathroom? Home renovations can be expensive, but, when done correctly, can greatly increase your enjoyment of your home and its resale value.

The workshop is packed with topics, covering architecture, landscaping, energy efficiency and financing. For a full list of what will be covered, please check the event page. There is no fee and you don’t have to register to attend.
