A Home for All Ages!
With the growing
demand to accommodate family members of various generations, the big attraction
at the show is the Home For All Ages, designed and
constructed by Artistic Renovations (Seven Hills). As millions of baby boomers approach the golden years, many are recreating their homes so everyone, young and old, can function with ease, while the elders age with grace and still keep their independence. The house is designed so that it could either be for a family that has their parents moving in with them or parents who might have college kids or newly married children moving back in with them...or both.
Due to past RemodelOhio Show attendees requesint more interior design ideas, this year's Home Decor Pavilion will feature an exhibit focusing on leisure spaces. Students from Virignia Mati College of Art and Design teamed up with NARI contractor, Paradise Renovation and Repair, to create unique vignetes in various design styles, including an"Arts and Crafts” Living Room, an "Eclectic" Bar Room, a "Contemporary" Small Loft Apartment and a "Transitional" Living Room. This feature is sure to give consumers more ideas on how to decorate their home.
Doghouse Auction and APL Pet Adoption
Four custom-made doghouses will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Cleveland Animal Protective League (APL). Each unique doghouse was built and donated by award-winning NARI contractors, including: Absolute Roofing and Construction (Parma); One Man and a Hammer (Mentor), Paradise Renovation and Repair (Southington); and Toth Painting Solutions (Parma).
The APL will be onsite with "Rover" - their mobile pet adoption unit - Friday, January 18th through Sunday, January 20th, giving show attendees the opportunity to have a "furry"addition to the family. The APL is a non-profit organization and gets no government money. All their money comes from fundraising, donations and service fees.
Take the Michael Phelps Challenge
The big attraction at the National Pool and Spa Show returning to the RemodelOhio Show, will be the Michael Phelps Signature Swim Spa. At 20' long and 8' wide, this swim spa is what Phelps uses to train for his Olympic competitions. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the Michael Phelps Spa, local swimmers are invited to try it out for three minutes...which is about all they could take. Swimmers will be literally swimming against thousands of gallons of water coming right at them - like a water treadmill at full throttle.
Swimmers interested in taking the challenge need to call 1-877-493-5570 and make a reservation. The open hours to take the challenge will be from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. both Saturday January 19th and Sunday, January 20th. Bring your swimsuit and a towel and get ready for the workout of your life!
