Some people dream of a two-story house with
an attached two-car garage.

There’s no place like home

If you already have your dream house, skip this. But if you're like most people in Hawaii, that home is still a dream. To fan that dream, American Savings Bank is sponsoring its Better Home Show, 5 to 10 p.m. today, noon to 10 p.m. tomorrow, and noon to 6 p.m. Sunday at Blaisdell Center Arena and Exhibition Hall.

More than 300 exhibitors will display the latest in stuff for that cozy retreat of yours, from basic construction to home improvement, particularly baths and kitchens. Then there will be help with landscaping, decorating and furnishing your abode.

Can't afford a home? The show is presented by an institution that provides loans.

So there will be workshops, sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, on buying a home. "Preparing for Home Ownership" covers budgeting, shopping and financing, and will be at 8 p.m. today and tomorrow, and 4 p.m. tomorrow. "Buying a Foreclosed Home" will be at 7 p.m. today and tomorrow, and 3 p.m. tomorrow and Sunday.

Admission to the Home Show is $3 adults, $2.50 for seniors and $2 for ages 7 to 12. Children 6 and under are admitted free when accompanied by a paying adult.
