ROSEVILLE, MINN.  — Housing First Minnesota is proud to present the Spring 2022 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 spring, visitors can tour 34 remodeled homes by 26 professional remodeling companies April 8-10 from 12-6 p.m. The public is welcome to tour all the homes free of charge, except for the Remodeled Dream Home that includes a $5 admission to support the Housing First Minnesota Foundation.

Guidebook Features All 34 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.

There is also an option to purchase an all-access pass for the Dream Homes that allows visitors to tour each of the five new Dream Homes and the Remodeled Dream Home for a discounted price. All-access passes must be purchased online.
