ROSEVILLE, MINN. (Feb. 18, 2019) — BATC-Housing First Minnesota is proud to present the 2019 Spring Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase. Designed to connect area homeowners with remodelers, the tour lets families see real remodeling projects and learn how remodeling can help them remain in their community when their homes no longer fit their needs.

This spring, visitors can tour 59 remodeled homes by 48 professional remodeling companies March 29-31 from 12-6 p.m. The public is welcome to tour all the homes free of charge, except for two Dream Remodeled Homes that include a $5 admission to support the BATC-Housing First Minnesota Foundation.

Guidebook Features all 59 Homes and More

The comprehensive magazine-style guidebook features photos, maps and descriptions for all the homes to help visitors plan their tour. Guidebooks are free and can be picked up at any area Holiday Stationstore. There are also a variety of interesting articles to read for inspiration and information.

The guidebook’s feature family stories share the remodeling experiences of multiple families whose homes are featured on the tour. There’s a calendar of informative and tasty events that several remodelers are hosting during the tour, a section of award-winning remodeled homes, and information about working with a professional remodeler.

Dream Homes Benefit BATC-Housing First Minnesota’s Charitable Arm

A $5 admission from visitors who tour our Dream Remodeled Homes helps the BATC-Housing First Foundation build and remodel homes and facilities for those in need. This fall’s Dream Remodeled Homes are two whole home renovations #R30 from Nor-Son Custom Builders in Edina and #R55 from Becker Building and Remodeling in Mounds View. 

Website Makes Touring Even Easier

The comprehensive website at www.ParadeofHomes.org is fully mobile responsive to make planning a tour a snap. The site includes all 59 remodeled projects easily searchable by location, remodeler and project type. Integrated company pages provide more information about each remodeling firm. And there’s a link to the guidebook in digital form. There’s also a new, upgraded Tour Planner which can combine new and remodeled tour homes, offers multiple tour routes and works directly from a mobile device.

Projects of All Types

Bathroom and kitchen renovations remain the top two most popular projects nationwide, and the Twin Cities is no exception, with 45 new kitchens and 31 new bathrooms, plus 11 whole-house renovations. There are gorgeous new bedrooms, mudrooms, garages, exteriors, porches and decks to tour, all showing the latest in design, materials, products and construction techniques from the region’s best professional remodelers.
