If you’re ready to transform your house into a “home sweet home” or want to see the latest craze in housing trends, the Black Hills Home Builders Association invites you to attend its annual home show.
The three-day event takes place at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center March 24-26. The cost is $5 per person for a one-day pass or $8 per person for a weekend pass.
The home show will showcase state-of-the-art interior and exterior home designs, workshops, and information from various builders, suppliers and finance companies.
“The purpose of the show would be to bring awareness to what individuals in our industry do,” said Tyler Tribby, president of the Black Hills Home Builders Association.
“It’s for consumers to get ideas on their remodel projects, their new home builds, their outdoor landscaping, gardening projects — anything they can use for their upcoming projects."
One highlight of the event is a tiny home by Dakota Craft of Rapid City.
“It’s completely finished with appliances and it will have a for sale sticker on it,” said Brett McManigal, president of Dakota Craft.
The tiny, 8-by-24-foot single-level home features engineered wood siding, one bedroom, a shower, bathroom, small kitchen and instant hot water that is supplied via propane.
Dakota Craft, which is a full-service lumber yard, will also have information on other building materials that are required to build a house, including siding, windows, doors, cabinets and lumber.
Other industry professionals who specialize in pools and spas, decks and outdoor living areas will also be at the home show.
“If there’s something for a home, it’s going to be there,” Tribby said.
McManigal is looking forward to the home show.
“The home show is where all the best new goodies are, so if you’re thinking of building a home, it’s kind of the best place to go get ideas and see what’s out there,” he said.
