#1 It is like Pinterest, but in real life

You can go out to these homes and get a ton of inspiration. From the home’s location to their choice of hand towels, there will be plenty to ‘pin’ into your mind.

#2 Find out what you like

You can go to various homes and find out the designs that you like. This is so much better than a showroom, you can see the elements in a real home setting. You can create a must-have list for your own home.


#3 See different areas of the Twin Cities

The Parade of Homes Tour has houses located all over the Twin Cities. There are most likely a few homes near you! Just go to http://www.paradeofhomes.org/homes/new.


#4 Meet the builders

The builders/associates are there to answer any questions you might have. This is a great chance to learn more about the home building and remodeling process.


#5 There is usually free food and beverages of some sort.

Who doesn’t love food and drinks?! Some homes offer free snacks.


#6 Learn what is trending

These homes are chosen for a reason - they are new and impressive. This is your opportunity to see the newest of the new in home design.


#7 It is a fun way to get out of the house

Winter is slowly ending and the Parade of Homes Tour is a great excuse to get out of the house for part of the day. From a 15 minute peek to an hour long visit, you can tour a home for as long as you’d like.

#8 You can come visit us and our homes!

We have two custom homes that are on tour this spring, both are located in Minnetonka. For more info and the exact address, click here. We hope to see you there!


Remember, the tour is only available from this weekend until March 20th. The remodeled homes will be on tour March 18th from 1-7pm and March 19-20th. Highmark has a remodeled home on tour as well.
