Bismarck residents are predicted to do a lot of home improvement this year.
We are number one on the Residential Remodeling Index.
The index predicts how many home improvement projects each market will have for the year ahead.
Bismarck is first, followed by Midland and San Angelo, Texas.
Executive Officer Dot Frank at the Home Builders Association says some of the most common projects are add-ons and re-doing bathrooms and kitchens.
"It is a surprise quite frankly that we hit number one but when you think about the impact that the economy and the industry is having on our area, this is an area where people are attracted to move but that also are committed to staying. So that's a real testimate to what they're anticipating for 2014 remodel numbers," Frank said.
The index only measures projects that cost more than 500 dollars.
Fargo is number 10 on the list, and Grand Forks is 11.
