Start 2019 off right by getting a jump-start on your home improvement project! Whether you’re a homeowner, landlord, renter or potential homeowner, one of the Seattle Department of Construction and Inspections Home Fairs will have something for you!
We will be joined by a variety of organizations to answer all of your questions, from Seattle Public Utilities, RainWise, and Rebuilding Together Seattle to Habitat for Humanity, City Light, Department of Neighborhoods, and many more.
Learn about Earthquake Home Retrofits, Landslide Preparedness and Awareness, and Backyard Cottages with three focused presentations covering each of these important topics.
Ask us about our permitting process, inspections, and codes requirements. Do you rent, or are you a landlord? Come learn about rental housing rules. We’ll also have information tables about affordable housing, landslide awareness, emergency preparedness, energy rebates, home ownership assistance, weatherization of homes, and so much more!
We’ve had such a great turn out for our South Seattle Home Fair for the past two years, we’ve added another event to bring these important resources to the rest of our great city: the new North Seattle Home Fair! This new extension of our popular event will take place on Saturday, January 26 at the Sunset Hill Community Club from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Our South Seattle Home Fair will once again be at the Filipino Community Center on Saturday, February 23 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Whether you’re a homeowner, landlord, renter, or potential homeowner, this event has something for you.
