Welcome to the 2017 New Summer Home Building and Remodeling Show








Summer! The long days of summer are an ideal time to complete all those home projects you’ve been thinking about. And there’s no better place to start than The New Summer Home Building & Remodeling Show. Check out the latest trends in everything from kitchens and baths, appliances, flooring and windows to the most recent advances in solar energy production and storage, and so much more. Hawaii’s premier remodelers, subcontractors, building material suppliers and other construction industry experts can help you decide which of the newest products and technologies are best for you and your home. Visit our “Ask an Expert” booth or attend any of our educational seminars to learn about ADUs, maintenance musts, tips for hiring a contractor, aging in place and universal design. We’ll have it all together for you to get your remodeling project DONE.

Aloha and welcome to the 2017 New Summer Home Building and Remodeling Show!

Our show this year has a new name and new energies focusing on educational seminars and providing you with valuable information from industry professionals on your next home project.

As home prices continue to rise, many of us may choose to remodel or add to our existing homes for added space. Whether it’s a room for mom and dad, an accessory dwelling unit (ADU) to help generate some additional income, or construction of a new home, the reasons may differ but one thing remains the same — an informed consumer is likely to have more success in their projects than one who isn’t.

Even if you aren’t looking to build right away, you’ll find the latest in new products and services made available by professional, licensed contractors and suppliers. The kids will enjoy our Sunday Fun Day with Honolulu’s finest firefighters. Plus, our Kupuna get discounted ticket pricing as well.

Please check our show schedule for times and information. We look forward to seeing you there!
