ROSEVILLE, MINN. (May 2019) — BATC-Housing First Minnesota’s ticketed, high-end home event, the Artisan Home Tour, is set to open for its sixth season on June 7. This year, the tour features 21 incredible new homes open from 12-6 p.m. on June 7-9, 14-16 and 21-23. Plus, 11 artisan-quality remodeled homes will be open the final weekend, June 21-23.

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 million-dollar-plus residences from the region’s most exclusive homebuilders and remodelers also feature today’s most popular designs, materials, accessories and colors.


A TourTicket (good for all homes) or a single-visit ticket is required for entry into the homes. TourTickets can be purchased at area Bachman’s at a discounted rate of $20. TourTickets can also be purchased online at for $25, or at the door of any home on the tour for $30. Discount coupons are also available at all area Holiday Stationstores for redemption online or at any Artisan home. For those interested in just visiting one or two homes, single-visit tickets are available for $5 at the door.

A portion of every ticket sold will be donated to the BATC-Housing First Minnesota Foundation. These funds help the Foundation continue its work building and remodeling homes for Minnesota’s homeless, veterans and others in need. Recent projects include a remodeled home for women in crisis, an apartment renovation for women going through addiction recovery and a new five-bedroom home designated as transitional housing for veteran women.

Homes in a Variety of Styles

From Mediterranean to Tudor 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.
