Remodelers Grade Home Show--Look to Spring

by Bill Zortman

  Jim LaDuc -- Lamps and Shades, Steve Swenson--Handy Man, and Paul Nelsen--Nelson Construction are "The Remodelers" on the 1st and third Tuesday each month from 9-10.

  In this week's show--- the Home Show reactions were tossed around as more than 10,000 attended the activities at the Sioux Falls Convention Center on March 7th, 8th, 9th.

  Lamps and Shades heard lots of questions about LED lighting in their booth. Handy Man got the wow factor out of showers and sinks. Nelson Construction is part of the planning for the Home Show which brings together builders, associates and vendors for a weekend answer fest.

  Nelsen was recently awarded the BEAM Award at the annual convention for the National Association of Home Builders in Las Vegas. Nelsen was chosen as the winner over entries from 49th other states for his work of encouraging Builder members across the country to use the goods and services offered by member companies and recognizes one builder who exemplifies this vitally important teamwork.

  Mr. Nelsen said he takes great pride in saying that 100% of his subcontractors want to be a part of a professional association and are members of the HBASE.

  Podcast of the entire program will be available on line later this week.
