Free Housing Fair

Want to go to a home show without having to pay $10 for admission? Try the South Minneapolis Housing Fair. It's a much smaller show than the one at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Open to anyone, the fair offers an excellent mix of about 100 local experts and resources for home-improvement projects, financing, green building standards and energy conservation, most of whom provide service throughout the Twin Cities. Representatives from Halet Remodeling (Booth 207, 612-789-9141) offer thermal imaging and can help with ice dam questions and prevention. SP Custom Carpentry (Booth 821, 952-890-7141) can do repairs on rope and pulley windows ($75 per rope), as well as reconditioning of vintage windows ($500 per window). The fair is from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at South High School (3131 19th Av. S., Mpls., www.housingfair.org).
