Saturday, the Historic Chicago Bungalow and Green Home Expo is at Chicago’s Merchandise Mart from 10am to 4pm. Even if you don’t have a bungalow, this is a great opportunity to get information on home restoration, energy-efficiency, speak with tradespeople, and even get a mortgage check-up.
There will be 140 exhibitors, 20 workshops, and a few media personalities—Lou Manfredini of Housesmarts and WGN Radio, The House Doctor, Bob Yapp, and Design on a Dime’s Kelly Edwards.
If Historic Chicago Bungalow certification is something that you are interested in, that will be available at the expo as well.
Anyone who registers for the show on-line will receive a free entry into the drawing for a home energy audit. All attendees will be entered to win an Energy Star washer and dryer. This year Abt is not only an exhibitor but a sponsor of the event too.
