For the first time, Cincinnati's Homearama has added forums by experts in various areas related to housing to the overall experience. Located at Carmelle Woods Subdivision in Mason off Route 741, this year, it is a toned down version of recent years and very manageable to visit.

Plan your attendance around these educational sessions and you will benefit from additional knowledge on these topics.  It might be a way to informally meet someone you are considering for a project at your own home.
