If you are excited about style, home improvement or remodeling you should be looking forward to the April issue of Advocate magazine, which is dedicated to home design. The issue includes plenty of resources — both by way of advertisers and editorial content — to help you tackle your own projects. For example, neighborhood resident Eric Cantu is a general contractor who is offering FREE remodeling seminars for those of you thinking about doing it yourself (I’m not promising you won’t get a sales pitch, but I have known this guy since grade school and I vouch that he’s on the up-and-up). Says Cantu, the seminars offer useful remodeling information, kitchen and bath product information and tips on interior design trends (plus complimentary food and drinks). The seminars are held at Ferguson Bath, Kitchen and Lighting Gallery, 1403 Slocum Street #100. You can register online at ericcantu.com or call 972.754.9988.

The seminars will be held on the following dates:

Thursday, May 12, 2011 at 6 p.m.

Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 9 a.m.
