It's Back...

...time once again for the Spring Parade of Homes Tour, which runs February 9th-March 16th.

I like the Parade. It gives me a chance to see anything new and creative that builders are putting into their homes. Last year one idea of saw that I had not thought of was a washer and dryer for the master suite.

It is also fun to look at the Dream Homes, both in at over $2 Million. This year the two lucky homes are located in Bloomington and in Stillwater. It does cost $5 to see the home, but the money goes to a worthy cause.

If your tastes run a little green, the Parade has a mini tour just for you. These earth friendly Green homes will showcase ways they have made home construction safe for the environment, and some homes will even have seminars to give buyers information on the Green options now available to them in the Twin Cities. Minnesota is the first state to develop a green certification program for builders and remodelers.

To get your hand on a copy of the Parade of Homes Book, visit any Holiday gas station around the Metro area.
