A Peek at the 2019 Design Studio at IBS

We’ve scheduled education, plan reviews, networking and receptions from top to bottom, Tuesday through Thursday in the Design Studio at IBS. Take a quick peek at some of the sessions you can join us at in just two weeks:

When: Tuesday, February 19 | 12:00 – 12:30 PM
Location: LVCC – Design Studio – LVCC – South 224
Presenter: Jamie Walker, Walker Home Design, Holladay, UT

What It’s About: Grab a plate, take a seat and immerse yourself in the world of “Fun Spaces” with Jamie Walker, one of the Design Studio’s most popular presenters.

When you were young did you ever build a tree house out of scrap wood? Did you ever build a blanket fort or jump from couch to couch pretending the floor was lava? What if you could take unused space in your existing homes and create some of those magical places that really blow your clients socks off? Jamie will showcase award-winning projects that do just that and give you world class ideas that will help you create your own Fun Spaces in the homes you are already building.

Lunch sponsored by UPG.
