This Weekend: Remodeling workshop in Sebastopol

If you’re looking for an excuse for a day trip this weekend, you’ve found it. On Saturday, Feb. 21, the Leff Design Center at 2661 Gravenstein Highway South, Suite B, in Sebastopol is hosting a workshop entitled “Guide to a Successful Remodeling Project: Navigating Design and Selections”. Located just three miles south of quirky downtown Sebastopol, the Leff Design Center is known for its always-free, always-fun workshops complete with snacks.

Saturday’s workshop tackles the difficult issue of remodeling your home, an endeavor that entails literally hundreds of decisions before the project is complete. Rather than let the process be daunting, come to the Leff Design Center at 10 a.m. to learn how to make the best decisions possible while planning your project along with gaining a more complete understanding of the different ways to approach the remodeling process as a whole rather than becoming intimidated by the parts.

So what will you learn? Here are a few bits of knowledge with which you can expect to walk away after the workshop:

· The careful planning involved in a beautiful remodeling and the most effective steps that will get you there

· The design process from the beginning part of developing a concept to the end stage of selecting finish materials

· The confidence to know that you too can do it – and survive!

Since space is limited, advance registration is required. You can register online or by calling Leff Design Center at (707) 823-4899. The Leffs have been in business since 1978, so they speak from experience. Don’t miss this unique opportunity.
