This free event is being held at Scout Realty Co., in north Portland.

Attendees are invited to bring their home addition/remodel ideas and questions and discuss plans, building permits and zoning laws, while exploring green possibilities in building and cost saving design ideas to balance the homeowner’s wants with their budget.

Johnson says, “This is an opportunity to collaborate with others who are also working on projects on their homes. You never know, maybe you can team up with others on materials to save money. Networks often provide wonderful resources and win-win situations.”
Michael Mitchell, a seasoned local builder who has been building throughout the Pacific Northwest since the late ‘80s, is presenting this workshop. Having worked on hundreds of home improvement projects over the years, he understands building in Oregon and can provide important information that will help save one’s sanity, time and money.

The event will be hosted by Scout Realty Co., 4212 N Mississippi Ave., Portland. Street parking available. Coffee and snacks will be provided. Let them know if you are GF, DF, vegan, etc. For more information or to RSVP, call 503-893-9318 or visit
