HomeWarehouse.com, trying to build its share of the home improvement market, hammers away at time wasted by do-it-yourselfers at bricks-and-mortar warehouses in a campaign launching its catalog and Web store. In spots running in the Pacific Northwest from Butler, Shine & Stern, Sausalito, Calif., a woman touts the benefits of the catalog's selection, prices and opportunity to order online.
