The Parade of Homes

Looking at renovating or remodeling this year? Perhaps building a new home but not sure what style of home you like? The Topeka Parade of Homes is a great way to get new ideas and see the latest styles and trends in new homes. ParadeCover2013Come see the homes which are free and open to the public on May 4-5 & May 11-12. They will be open to the public from 12 P.M. to 5 P.M on Saturday the 4th and the 11th and 12 P.M. to 4 P.M on Sunday the 5th and 12th.

This year, nine homes are featured, showing off the skills of five local companies. The Capital Journal will have pictures and some details with the homes the week before the Parade of Homes begins. You can see the houses on a map with a few details here.

If you’re looking for more options and a wider variety of styles, the Kansas City Home Builders Association is sponsoring their own Parade of Homes for Kansas City. Starting April 20th and running through May 5th, you can view over 322 homes throughout the KC area.

These homes are free to tour and open to the public daily from 11 A.M. – 6 P.M. Prices range from $170,000 to $2 million. For more information on the KC Parade of homes or look at the participating companies, visit their website here.

I enjoy baking, computer programming, and lots of TV shows. My favorite books come from fantasy authors like Brandon Sanderson, Jim Butcher, Joe Abercrombie, and Patrick Rothfuss.
