Event Time:

12:00 am

Event Location:

If women are purchasing homes at twice the rate of men, why are we so hesitant to take on home improvement?

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Created in response to a rising demographic of single women homeowners, this workshop is for all individuals who want to gain a better understanding of home improvement and construction project management, with a focus on making residential renovation and rehab more approachable for women. Participants will learn about the building process from start to finish, while developing a plan for navigating wants versus needs.

Single women are currently the second-largest segment of homebuyers, yet many pass on great purchase opportunities because they are intimidated by the renovation process or do not know where to begin. 

Part One: Plan & Prepare

  • Develop a Plan
  • Identify best ROI
  • Set realistic expectations
  • Recognize the importance of research and a clearly articulated design vision

Part Two: Activate Your Plan

  • Pros and Cons fo DIY vs hiring professionals
  • Find and select contractors
  • Legal considerations – contracts, permits, licenses and insurance
  • Procure supplies and materials
  • ​​​​​​​Project management, contingency planning and budgeting​​​​​​​

The cost of this half day session is $95. Light refreshments will be available. Guests are welcome to bring in light snacks to enjoy during their visit.

18+ all genders are welcome. No experience is needed, though the content was designed with consideration for the experience of womxn homeowners.
