Local designers, home renovators and closet organizers will join a Timber Kings star at the Red Deer Home Show this month.

Nearly 300 exhibitors are lined up to showcase various products and services when the 2017 Home Show comes to Westerner Park from March 10-12.

Among the featured speakers is celebrity log home builder André Chevigny — the guy in charge of Pioneer Log Homes of B.C., the multi-million-dollar company shown in the HGTV show Timber Kings.

Chevigny will speak about how he went from growing up poor in a mobile home to running a business with 120 employees that creates impressive homes for global clients. His talks are at 1 p.m. on Saturday March 11 and 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 12.

Local design experts Sofie Blunck and Kelly Holyoak will discuss upcoming trends and what to expect when hiring a design professional on Sunday, March 12, at 1 p.m. Interior designer Blunck is the owner of the Sofie B Design firm, while Holyoak is the owner of Normandeau Window Coverings in Lacombe and Red Deer.

A session on getting the most out of roofing projects will be held the same day at noon, featuring Brandon Bouchard, president of the Canadian Home Builders Association of Central Alberta.

The Dos and Don’t of home renovations will be discussed by lawyer Christopher Stephan, past-president of the Red Deer Construction Association, at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, while Terry Hollman, owner of Canadian Closets and Storage, will talk about products that can help organize your home the same day at 11:30 a.m.
