The Minneapolis Home & Remodeling Show, which is at the US Bank Stadium, is the first major show of the year and your first opportunity to start planning your project for 2020.

Brett Tutor, the handsome, charismatic carpenter on the hit series “Trading Spaces,” will appear on the Main Stage in 2020. The chiseled Renaissance man who People Magazine named ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ has an incredibly diverse resume reflecting his seemingly endless talents. He has worked as a stuntman, EMT and SWAT medic, house flipper, home inspector, white water rafting and rock climbing guide, singer, songwriter and guitarist, as well as a security and survival specialist on season two of Discovery Channel’s hit show “Treasure Quest.”

He’s also a passionate champion of causes with a positive social impact. In 2014, he founded the non-profit organization Off The Grid International, which builds clean water and sanitation systems in some of the most remote regions of the planet. In addition, he hosted the regional television show “New Home Source,” which featured Brett traveling the country and educating viewers on new building methods and materials, energy efficiency and the future of home building. Brett was born and raised in Austin, Texas. His love of adventure began at an early age, riding motorcycles and BMX bikes with his brother, and receiving truckloads of dirt as Christmas presents to add to their backyard dirt jump track. By age 15, he was apprenticing as a carpenter and a home inspector under his grandfather.

 

Minnesota Lake Home & Cabin Show

Lake Home & Cabin Show: Booth #856 & 857, February 7-9, 2020

The Minnesota Lake Home & Cabin Show,which is at the Minneapolis Convention Center, is Minnesota’s jumpstart to summer at the lake. There’s nothing better than a long weekend at the lake home or cabin with family and friends and The Lake Home & Cabin Show will bring the cabin inside for you. Everything for your special getaway home will be there. The very best companies specializing in lake and cabin products and services will be ready to meet you.

Now in its 16th year, the Lake Home & Cabin Show is Minnesota’s ONLY show that specializes in second homes and the second home lifestyle. If you own a lake home, cottage or cabin or you want to own one this is a truly unique and focused event you’ll want to experience. There’s nothing more Minnesotan than spending your summer weekends at the cabin. Some of us own or share a slice of “Cabin Heaven,” while others are known as “OPC’s” — we get invited to other people’s cabins. Both of us are the lucky ones when there’s a chair at the end of the dock for that first cup of morning coffee.

We have a love affair with our lake homes and cabins and each year we rekindle it at the Lake Home & Cabin Show. There will be features for everyone. Check back for updated information on seminars, activities, and events that will occur every hour on the Northwood’s Seminar Stage or the Getaway Gourmet Cooking Stage.

Interview

Watch Jonathon Weiss, of Interiors International, interview Chris Doehrmann, AIA, at the Home & Garden Show about Why do I need an architect?

“People always ask me, ‘why do I need an architect?’ The answer is simple, being able to live the way you want in your home. You will spend hundreds of thousands of dollars – why would you want to wake up in your home every day with a list of things you wish you had done differently?” -Chris Doehrmann, AIA
