The Spring Parade of Homes has come and gone. We hope you had a chance to tour our beautiful new custom homes in and around the Twin Cities. If not be sure to come see us this fall.

There aren’t a whole lot of events scheduled this month, but that’s ok because with the weather finally warming up you’ll probably want to spend it outdoors. Backyard grilling and cabin season is about to begin so now is a great time to do a little yard work in preparation. When you’re finished tidying up around the house or the cabin be sure to check out some of the events in the Twin Cities this April.
