The minute you opened the doors to the Charleston Civic Center you stepped into the outdoor gardens with lots of different possibilities. Fountains and landscaping surrounded rocking chairs and small grill areas as well as entertainment center for game days and Sunday afternoon TV watching. The outdoor kitchen area was a dream come true for the culinary man or woman.
Numerous exhibitor's provided "how to" demonstrations in their exhibit space.
The Home Builders Association of Greater Charleston exhibit was an on-going commercial of "You'll be surprised what you find at the WVHS". We found jewelery; tupperware; baskets; windows; doors; Realtors; Builders; generators; HVAC; blinds; carpet & hardwood flooring.

Returning for the second year will be the WVHS LEGO Build. 4th grade students will build a LEGO house; designed with their imagination.
Each student is to draw a buildable house; the house judged (by teacher and class) as the "most buildable" is the house the class will build. The drawing (which becomes their building permit) is submitted to the Home Builders; stamped approved and returned with LEGO blocks, windows, doors and roof pieces.
Inspectors will visit the schools to make sure students are following code (prepared manual).
Student teams will act as the subcontractors: Safety team; Social Media Team; Interior Design Team; Landscaping, Art; Delivery and Pick-up, Bricks, Windows, Doors and Roof Teams.
Student will have an opportunity to learn about their own homes through self-performed "inspections".
The LEGO House will be on display in Lego Land at the West Virginia Home Show during the weekend.
Sponsors of the LEGO Homes were members of the Home Builders Association of Greater Charleston.
If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for the 2017 Build please call or e-mail Peggy Sampson, WV Home Show Manager at 304-744-2200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
