ROSEVILLE, MINN. (Sept. 2019) — BATC-Housing First Minnesota is proud to present the Fall 2019 Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase which is 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 fall, visitors can tour 67 remodeled homes by 50 professional remodeling companies Sept. 27-29 from 12-6 p.m. The public is welcome to tour all the homes free of charge, except for four Dream Remodeled Homes that include a $5 admission to support the BATC-Housing First Minnesota Foundation.

Guidebook Features all 67 Homes and More

The comprehensive magazine-style guidebook features photos, directions 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 cover story shares the remodeling journey of local blogger Kate Arends Peters of Wit & Delight and her family. Plus, two more real family stories share the remodeling experiences of two families whose homes are featured on the tour. There’s a calendar of events that several remodelers are hosting during the tour and information about working with a professional remodeler.

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

A $5 contribution 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 four stunning remodels #R13 from Mark D. Williams Custom Homes in Excelsior, #R23 from Nor-Son Custom Builders in Hopkins, #R29 from REFINED, LLC in Edina and #R37 from Sustainable 9 Design + Build in Minneapolis. 

Website Makes Touring Even Easier

The comprehensive website at www.ParadeofHomes.org makes planning a tour a breeze. The site includes all 67 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 the 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, with 43 new kitchens, 27 main-level remodels and 22 new bathrooms, plus 15 whole-house renovations. There are lots of gorgeous new bedrooms, mudrooms, offices, exteriors, porches and decks to tour, all showing the latest in design, materials, products and construction techniques from the region’s best professional remodelers.
