Midland, TX (Big 2 News) - The Permian Basin Builders Association's 14th annual Home and Garden Show was more than just a show, it had activities and offered people a chance to learn.

"I think it's huge for the community because it's giving them a venue, one, to see what's going on in the home. You can see new styles in the home or you can see the building and construction," said Karen York, executive officer of the PBBA.

According to PBBA officials, the weekend home and garden show offered people interested in building or remodeling a chance to ask questions with professionals.

Rodney Martin from the PBBA says the association looks after the needs of builders and the community making sure builders are up to date on the regulations.

"Builders have all kinds of regulations coming from OSHA, from environmental concerns, from just the structural concerns that the city has," said Rodney Martin, board member of the PBBA.

Children also had their own activities ranging from jumping castles to little building projects.

"I think it's a huge educational piece for our community as well as a lot of fun for everybody to come out," York said.

Jan Smith and Teresa Nutt have been vendors at the home and garden show for the past seven years now.

For them, it's all about networking when in turn, helps them better serve their customers.

"Somebody will come in and ask us, 'do you know somebody that we can get new windows from?' Or doors, or painters or things like that, so it just helps us do that," said Jan Smith, a designer for In Studio.

According to martin, new regulations from the city, state or nation frequently come out. And those involved in the PBBA can help educate each other as a way to ensure no one is blindsided by a new building regulation.

"There's a lot of fellowship and it's a way to promote building and quality building and ethical building in the Permian Basin," Martin said.
