Workshops prove useful to homeowners
By Eileen Watkins

The design/build firm Creative Design & Construction Remodeling will hold three more free Home Remodeling Workshops this fall at its showroom at 204 Livingston St., Northvale. The workshops will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thurs., Sept. 17; 9 to 11 a.m. on Sat., Oct. 17; and 6 to 8 p.m. on Thurs., Nov. 13.

Homeowners are invited to come and hear from professionals about how to make their remodel or addition a success. Each two-hour session will cover such topics as worksheets, planning guidelines and case studies.

“Many of the guests attending our first series of educational workshops felt that much of the anxiety that can be associated with remodeling was eliminated, simply by (their) being more aware of and more organized with the process”, stated Glen Lumia, President and CEO of the firm. “So we decided to offer three more this fall. This way, consumers know a whole lot more going into it.”

“It was so informative,” said Lynn G. of Mahwah, who attended one of the earlier seminars. “It opened my eyes to all the pitfalls we might have encountered. It gave us great tips and questions to ask before we embark on our renovation.”

“This was exactly what we needed,” stated Mary Jane and Carly B. of New Milford.

Seminar guests will be provided with light dinner and refreshments as well as with additional tips and giveaways. A donation of $20 per household is suggested at registration.

The money will be forwarded to The Wounded Warrior Project, a nonprofit organization that aims to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women.

Workshop guests must register to reserve seating, as space is limited. An adult-only audience is suggested so guests can give the workshop their full attention. Those interested can call 201-768-5813 or register online at

The firm creates long-term relationships through a complete “design/build” process, which takes each client from the design concept through architectural drawings to completion of the project, all within the same organization.
