Spring Remodelers Showcase – Twin Cities Parade of Homes 2012
The Spring Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase® is this weekend, from March 30 - April 1. Now in its 25th year, homeowners will find inspired ideas for remodeling their own homes, while getting a chance to interview a range of professional remodelers about their skills.
The tour has opened to the public 68 beautifully remodeled homes in 25 communities across the extended Twin Cities metropolitan area. Virtually every type of remodeling is showcased on the tour, including:
- 12 whole-house remodels
- 39 kitchen renovations
- 19 additions
- 16 baths
- 13 lower-level finished
Other projects include decks, porches and exteriors, owners’ suites, mud rooms, home offices, laundry rooms, and garages.
The Parade of Homes Spring Remodelers Showcase is presented by Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) and sponsored by Marvin Windows and Doors. The tour homes are open from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Friday March 30, and 12:00 noon to 6:00 p.m. on both Saturday, March 30 and Sunday, April 1. The Remodelers Showcase Guidebooks are available free at all metropolitan area Holiday StationStores. Searching for Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase projects is easy at www.paradeofhomes.org.
Remodeling representatives from 52 firms that performed the work will be on hand at each home to answer questions about the projects. Visitors can also meet real families who recently remodeled their home or read about their experiences in the guidebook.
Admission is free, with the exception of one Dream Remodeled Home. Here, visitors will be asked for a $5.00 donation to help fund the Builders Outreach Foundation, which help house families in need.
