• The Home Builders Resource Expo Exhibitor was a huge success with an amazing turnout from the public!  There were 90+ vendors including informational booths from the Town of Paradise Building Department, Butte County, Cal OES, Paradise Irrigation District, building materials and techniques, manufactured homes, modular homes, stick built homes, and concrete, and financing. There were also classes and educational sessions available on subjects like how to choose a contractor, avoiding scams, financing help.
