Olympia Master Builders' BIG Home & Remodel Show is Fun for the Whole Family

Forget whatever boring idea you have about just another trade show – the Olympia Master Builders’ BIG Home & Remodel Show is anything but that! Happening April 20-21, 2024, it’s a one-stop shop for everything your home needs, from landscaping and remodeling to garage doors and window replacements, plus a few treats for pampering yourself and tons of fun for the kids.

“From new builds and remodeling to energy-efficient improvements, there is so much good stuff to see and learn,” shares Ryan Betz, SVP/Chief Strategy & Marketing Officer with OlyFed, who has a booth at the BIG Home & Remodel Show each year. “Attending the event makes for a great day of fun and inspiration. You can connect with so many local experts and gain insight all in one place. We love connecting with new people and learning about the dreams and hopes for their future home and how we can help make those dreams a reality.”

Interact With Business Owners at Home Show in Lacey

We’ve all been there. You want or need to get something done to your home, but you just don’t know who to call. So, you go to Google and the options are overwhelming. You can drain days, even weeks, of your life just trying to contact people to get questions answered and estimates. Or, you could spend a few hours at the BIG Home & Remodel Show, and get everything you need at once while having fun!

“Attending the show allows the public to interact one-on-one with businesses all across our region, and often, with the business owners themselves,” says Jill Williams, Communications Director for Olympia Master Builders. “Many vendors will offer discounts, give bids on sites, and everyone walks away with a reusable bag full of goodies ranging from buckets and water bottles to candy – pretty much any other giveaway imaginable!”

Aside from freebies, the knowledge you gain will be priceless. Watch demos and learn about the latest in energy-efficient products that could reduce costs in your home. Don’t know if you should go hardwood or laminate? Ask! Wondering if you’ll add value to your home by removing a tub for a walk-in shower? Find out!

Ready to buy, build, or remodel and curious about loan options? Stop by the OlyFed booth!

“The Home Show is a fantastic opportunity to connect with our customers and community who are looking to buy, build or remodel their home,” shares Ryan.

“We’ve got more than a dozen different types of loan options to meet the specific needs of an individual or family. From construction and lot loans to purchase remodel and Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) loans, OlyFed has a host of unique offerings that make your next house project possible. Even better, we have specific programs to help first-time buyers and households that earn less than 80% of median income in Thurston County.”
