Spring Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase ~ 2011

This weekend is the 24th annual Spring Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase. This is a unique opportunity to tour 69 actual remodeled homes in 26 communities throughout the Twin Cities metro.

This event is presented by the Builders Association of the Twin Cities Remodelers Council. The showcase homes will be open Friday April 1 from 1-7pm, and Saturday and Sunday April 2-3 12:00 noon to 6:00 pm. Admission is free (except for a Dream Remodeled Homes) to the general public. Remodeling representatives will be on hand to answer questions. All 57 professional remodeling firms showcased on the tour are members of the Council.

Homes are open in 26 communities across the Twin Cities area. Minneapolis has 12 homes on the tour and 8 are in Edina.  Other homes are located all around the metro, from Andover to Woodbury.

Practically every type of remodeling job is showcased on the tour, including 16 whole-house remodels, 47 kitchen renovations, 24 additions, 12 baths and 12 lower-level finishes. Other projects featured include decks, porches and exteriors, owners’ suites, mud rooms, home offices, laundry rooms and garages.

The two Dream Homes were selected as this spring’s Builders Outreach Foundation Dream Remodeled Homes. Both were whole-house remodels. One home in Minneapolis is by House Lift and one in St. Paul by Ispiri, LLC. A $5.00 donation is requested to the Foundation, the charitable arm of BATC, with all proceeds used to build homes for families who otherwise couldn’t afford one.

Guidebooks are available free at all metro area Holiday StationStores or online. The Remodelers Showcase has a Calendar of Events, from educational to inspirational these events are held at Remodelers Showcase homes, offices and showrooms. Find out more online at www.paradeofhomes.org.
