This is the last weekend of the Spring Parade of Homes(sm) and the Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase. If you haven’t gotten out to tour any of the 458 new homes or the 57 remodeled homes, this is your last weekend to do so. Don’t miss it, you won’t get another chance to see this many stunning homes until the fall. The weather is forecasted to be sunny, but not as warm as this past weekend. Still, it’s a great way to get out and see some of the latest trends in home design.

Artisan Dream Remodeled Home
The Artisan Dream Remodeled Homes help the BATC Foundation build and remodel homes for area families in need by asking visitors to donate $5 at the door. This Spring, the Foundation selected three unique remodeled homes to feature. Artisan Dream Remodeled Home #R29 by Xpand, Inc. is a 50s rambler located in Orono and renovated for modern lakeside living. Home #R33 by AMEK Custom Homes is located in Wayzata and demonstrates how a fire-damaged home can be resurrected to retain its distinctive architecture while adding valuable square footage. Oslo Builders renovated an Edina mid-century modern home, #R45, to maintain all the original charm while bringing it beautifully into the 21st century.
