Annual home, garden and lifestyle show wraps up at the Civic Center

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

The Home Builders' Association of Southwest Louisiana just wrapped up its 26th Annual Home, Garden and Lifestyle Show at the Lake Charles Civic Center. 

New, future, and current homeowners had the opportunity to take a look at over one hundred vendors with products from A to Z, every step of the home owning process.

From planning renovations or building a new house, to finding a realtor or that perfect lighting fixture to finish off your kitchen, show has it covered. 

Many came seeking new design ideas, but also some advice on financing and purchasing homes. 

Because of this influx of home buyers to the area, organizers say the show has only grown bigger over the past couple of years. 
"The chamber of commerce did a study a few years back showing the future impact and it seems to be coming to fruition," said Home Builders' Association President, Don Veronie. "There is a high demand for new homes and there are a lot of folks just looking to sell their homes and upgrading, buying new homes, so the business has been pretty good."
Coming up on Nightcast, we'll have a closer look at what the show had to offer.
