I found the following notice from the Community Calendar (announcement at the very bottom) of the online edition of the Chicago Tribune. Granted, I’m a day late and a dollar short on this but as they say, “It’s the thought that counts.” right?
•The Fire Department and Northern Illinois Fire Sprinkler Advisory Board will hold an open house at a residence where fire sprinklers have been installed at 5 p.m. Thursday at 17301 70th Ave. Visitors can see how the sprinklers work inside a separate demo trailer parked at the site. Refreshments will be served. Call 708-444-5200.
I would love to find a home builder in my neck of the woods that would install sprinklers in a spec house as an option for buyers. Stay tuned!
