HGTV star Alison Victoria to appear at the NWI Home & Remodeling Expo

HGTV star Alison Victoria will appear at the NWI Home & Remodeling Expo in March.

Alison Victoria, who hosts the popular but troubled HGTV show "Windy City Rehab," will appear at the Northwest Indiana Home & Remodeling Expo in March.

The Home Builders Association of Northwest Indiana will stage the annual home expo from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. March 14 and 15 at the Porter County Expo Center at 215 E. Division Road in Valparaiso. Companies across Northwest Indiana will showcase products and services like remodeling, roofs, gutters, windows, landscaping, floors and decor at vendor booths.

The expo will include DIY classes on subjects like kitchen cabinet painting and antique furniture refurbishing. Attendees also can enter a raffle to win a $1,000 remodeling shopping spree.

Victoria will be on hand to offer remodeling design tips and tricks and will take questions from the audience.

Chicago reportedly has blocked Victoria and her general contractor, Donovan Eckhardt, from obtaining any new work permits, issued several stop-work permits and briefly suspended their real estate developer and general contractor licenses last summer over various code and permit violations.
