On Saturday, August 25, Positively Promoting Piqua (PPP) will be sponsoring a community workshop entitled "Fix It or Flip It" at the Upper Valley Career Center from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The workshop, which is free of charge, is designed to educate Piqua area residents about either renovating their present homes and/or "flipping" a home for a profit with the end result of aesthetically improving their properties and enhancing the community.
The workshop will include speakers who will provide "how to" tips of renovating homes as well as financing such improvements. Several Piqua residents have successfully "flipped" homes and will relate how they accomplished the feat. Other speakers will talk about creating "curb appeal" and how such things as landscaping or new paint can add value to one's home. UVCC's building and trades department will also be asked to participate as part of this collaborative venture.
Following the morning presentation, local businesses will be present to meet with the general public. Vendors will include electricians, plumbers, painters, landscapers, realtors, bankers and others who can provide guidelines on home projects. Each participant will be asked to provide a door prize for drawings given throughout the morning. Donuts and coffee will be served. PBS Woodworker Scott Phillips is also being invited to participate.
PPP's planning committee is hopeful this workshop will be beneficial to those who are now planning fall and/or winter home improvement projects.
