The 70th annual Seattle Home Show is currently underway. Anything and everything you might want for improving or adding to your home is on display, from ways to make your home more energy-efficient to the best wall art for your home.
One of the more interesting displays was by NK Woodworking. Among the desks and staircases they had examples of, they also had their wooden tub front and center. Nathie Katzoff, from NK, said it took him and another worker about 300 hours to put this one tub together.
Along with all the impressive home improvement displays, there are also a few good causes in attendance as well. Aqua Quip and BECU teamed up with Habitat for Humanity for a swim charity event at the show. Anyone is allowed to to swim for anywhere up to an hour. BECU and Aqua Quip will make a combined donation of $5/minute to Habitat for Humanity that each participant swims.
Another interesting organization at the show is Shelter Box, which responds to disaster areas to provide shelter for the victims. They include a tent, warmth and protection, often included is a wood burning stove, basic tool kit and first aid, and even a kids pack with coloring books and crayons.
The Seattle Home Show is open everyday until February 23rd at the CenturyLink Field Event Center. If you find you haven't had enough time to see all you wanted, you can also register for free second day visit.
