YAKIMA Wash. -- If you’re looking to remodel your home or just want to decorate it, you might want to head over to the Central Washington Home and Garden Show.

This is the 30th annual Central Washington Home and Garden show hosted by the Home Builders Association.

People showed up to look for new ways they could decorate their house.

“Spring is here I’m ready for gardening and that’s what I’m going to look for," said Diane Cole.

“We’re looking at redoing our roof so hopefully we find somebody here that we can hire," said Elvia Castaneda.

Executive Officer for Home Builders Association Carly Faul says this event is designed for homeowners in all stages of remodeling, landscaping and decorating their homes.

They have several local businesses showcasing their products and work as well as expert advice for your home.

Faul says having a home is the American Dream for many people and right now is the best time for people to invest in their homes.

“Interest rates are at a great percentage right now so now is that time to take that either home equity line of improvement credit or new financing for a new home. Prices are great the industry is pumping and the economy is doing great it’s a great time to make that investment into your home right now," said Faul.

Business owner for Italstone Gino Elias says his business has been here in the Yakima Valley since 2008.

He says he came here from Oregon because there is a lot of business growing in Yakima and his counter-top stones are popular among contractors and homeowners.

“Granite is popular but quartz are unbelievable it is so beautiful, it is very durable, indestructible products, greys and whites right now are amazing colors," said Elias.

Owner of Pleasant Ridge Construction Clint Adamson says they are a custom builder that will do any customization to a home and have been here in Yakima for 14 years.

He says this is a great opportunity for people to see what’s new and what’s out there right now.

“Get a really good feel for what it takes, the steps and the process and if they want to be involved in that or if they want someone to do everything for them, there’s opportunities for both," said Adamson.

The exhibit will be open for the rest of the weekend.

You can purchase tickets at the door for 12 dollars or you can get a 2 dollar discount by getting them online.
