This highly-educational seminar enlightens future homeowners on how to save money before, during, and after construction, choosing lenders, all aspects of current building trends along with time tested construction methods.
The seminar also offers practical advice for homeowners on how to design a dream home that has a proper lighting plan to create a warm ambience, choosing colors and textures for dramatic accents, and choosing classic finishing products that have endurance.
President Bob Kress, Sr., pioneered the brand more than 25 years ago in the basement of his home and has risen to the top as a custom home package manufacturer and a premier master designer in this specialized construction industry.

The workshop includes a video tour of several Woodkrest homes built from various materials and styles implementing different construction practices and procedures.
