The Daily Oklahoman reports the 2011 Great Southwest Home Show (GSWHS) in Tulsa, Oklahoma, begins Thursday, April 28, at 9 AM, open to the trade until 1 PM Friday. At 3 PM Friday, April 29, the doors will swing open to the public for FREE, through Saturday and Sunday. The QuikTrip Center at Expo Square will display 29 different models retailers can buy and then sell to the public, or take orders. Doug Gorman, Home-Mart, Inc. retailer in Tulsa, in his third year as chairman of GSWHS, says the new homes have the quality and features you previously saw only on site-built homes, inside and outside. Traditional builders tell people $90-100 a square foot. Gorman says he quotes them $30-40 a square foot for a factory-built home. If the buyer does not have a site yet, Gorman says: “If a guy wants to go find a piece of land, we can pin it all together in one note.” This marks the third year for the show in Tulsa. As Leon Russell says in his song: “I’m going back to Tulsa one more time, I’ve got home sweet home Oklahoma on my mind.” For more on the show, see The Great Southwest Home Show 2011.
