This year’s building show attendees—and product offerings—show a level of maturity not dreamed of by their predecessors.
HOMEBUILDING AND REMODELINGS are not what they used to be—and that’s good news. I’ve been attending the annual International Builders’ Show (IBS) every year for the past 20 years, and I can honestly say this one was different. It’s not the venue, although the exhibits are generally classier—no piles of cigarette butts next to half-naked women on exercise bikes this year. It’s certainly not the food.
