The Truckee Home & Building Show will expand for its 16th annual event this Memorial Day weekend to more exhibitors than ever before.

Once again, the Truckee Home & Building Show, in a partnership with the Sierra Green Building Association, will continue the expanded focus on green and sustainable building with the 2008 Regional Green Building Symposium. This two-day event will feature speakers and a green-home tour.

Bring your plans. Talk to the experts about everything from hardwood floors to windows. Find out what makes lumber LEED-certified. Learn all about insulation, plumbing and heating choices for your home. Consider paving options, including a new colored asphalt surface that has the look of hand-placed stones. Check out new wood stoves and fireplaces. There is something for every facet of home design and building.

The Truckee Home & Building Show is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Truckee High School, 11725 Donner Pass Road, Truckee.

The 2008 Regional Green Building Symposium also will be Saturday and Sunday. The Green Home Tour leaves from the school’s west parking lot, meeting at 4:15 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $6, and proceeds benefit local schools as well as green building.
