ROSEVILLE, MINN. (May 2021) —Housing First Minnesota’s ticketed, high-end home event, the Artisan Home Tour, is set to open for its eighth season on June 11. This year, the tour features 22 incredible new homes open from 12-6 p.m. on June 11-13, 18-20, and 25-27. Plus, eight artisan-quality remodeled homes will be open the final weekend, June 25-27. COVID-19 safety precautions will be taken at each home to ensure the experience is safe for all.

Homes that are showcased on the Artisan Home Tour have each been designed and constructed with the highest level of architectural integrity, top-quality craftsmanship and exceptionally high finish level. These multi-million-dollar residences from the region’s most exclusive homebuilders and remodelers also feature today’s most popular designs, materials, accessories and colors.


A Tour Ticket (good for all homes) or a single-visit ticket is required for entry into the homes. Tour Tickets can be purchased at area Bachman’s at a discounted rate of $20 starting May 24. Tour Tickets can also be purchased online at ArtisanHomeTour.org or in the Artisan Home Tour app for $25, or at the door of any home on the tour for $30. Discount coupons are also available at all area Holiday Stationstores starting May 24 for redemption online or at any Artisan home during the tour. For those interested in just visiting one or two homes, single-visit tickets are available for $5 at the door and online. Visitors are encouraged to purchase tickets ahead of time to reduce contact at the homes.

The Artisan Home Tour helps to support the work of the Housing First Minnesota Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization composed of Housing First Minnesota members and supporters who contribute their time, materials and expertise to help the Foundation build and remodel safe housing for Minnesota’s homeless, veterans and others in need. Recent projects include an apartment renovation for women going through addiction recovery and new homes designated as transitional housing for veterans in need.

Details, Photos, Maps

All the homes on tour are featured online at ArtisanHomeTour.org, in the Artisan Home Tour mobile app and in the comprehensive Artisan Home Tour guidebook.

The Artisan Home Tour guidebook is direct mailed to 80,000 households in the Twin Cities region and can be picked up at Bachman’s ticket locations. A digital version is available online at ArtisanHomeTour.org.

Downloading the Artisan Home Tour app provides complete tour information on your phone. In addition to providing an easy-to-use online ticketing application that minimizes contact at the homes, the mobile app allows visitors to view home photos as they become available, map out their tour route, and rate and comment on the homes they tour.

Homes Across the Metro

The majority of the homes are concentrated in the western suburbs, but homes are found all across the metro area, from Minnetrista to Afton. New Homes are located in Eden Prairie (1), Chanhassen (1), Shorewood (1), Tonka Bay (1), Minnetrista (2), Mound (1), Orono (3), Medina (2), Wayzata (2), Woodland (2), Minneapolis (1), North Oaks (1), West Lakeland (1), Afton (2), and Woodbury (1).

A Variety of Styles

From Mediterranean to contemporary and everything in between, the Artisan homes run the entire gamut of styles. Designed to make life comfortable and gracious, Artisan homes include details and features that assure each family’s lifestyle is at center stage. High-end kitchens showcase top-of-the-line appliances and unique custom finishes. The latest technology is a core feature in many of the homes, including several that are fully automated. Indoor to outdoor transitions are thoughtfully planned with features like screen porches, terraces, outdoor kitchens and more.
