CR Home Show going green

   The 30th Annual Cedar Rapids Home Show (2009) will be at the U.S. Cellular Center in Cedar Rapids from Friday, Feb. 20, through Sunday, Feb. 22.  Cost is $5 for adults and free for kids under 12. The show is sponsored by the Cedar Rapids Area Home Builders Association.

    From the looks of the seminar schedule, the home show is going green. With landscaping ideas, sessions on “green building” and outdoor living spaces, homeowners can make plans for environmentally friendly home improvement projects.

    Show hours are 5-9 p.m. Friday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
