Panelists will include Al Giaquinto, a construction industry veteran, NAHB certified graduate remodeler, and president of Plum Builders, Inc.; Mary Jo Peterson, an interior designer, NKBA Hall of Fame inductee, and president of Mary Jo Peterson, Inc. with over 25 years of experience, specializing in aging-in-place and active adult housing; and Paul Masi, a leader and architect of Bates Masi Architects who has won over 39 design awards and has been featured in countless national and international publications. The seminar will be moderated by Rose Gilbert, a syndicated design and lifestyle columnist and will prove to be a unique and unprecedented look into the future of home design.
