Happy to provide the award-winnning assist, twice

December 5, 2011

The people behind the Parade of Homes (the Builders Association of the Twin Cities) awarded 14 of the best homes on the tour with the coveted Reggie Award, as chosen by peers and the members of the public.

Because of our help with two of those projects, we’ve got a Trillium Award for each hand (in case one gets jealous).

Minneapolis – St. Paul Home Tour this weekend

April 29, 2011

No one can argue with the Parade of Homes and Remodelers’ Showcase being the biggest home tour, but this weekend’s Minneapolis – St. Paul Home Tour offers great options for city-dwellers to see real people’s remodeled and redecorated homes in their own neighborhoods.

The free, self-guided tour includes 55 homes within the Minneapolis and St. Paul city limits with a focus on the actual homeowners sharing their experiences and ideas. The homes range in eras and lifestyles to offer a realistic look at the diverse housing and neighborhoods in the cities.

Plus, the projects are sure to be great, as some of our favorite companies did the work, including Castle Building & Remodeling, Rehkamp Larson Architects and Jones Design Build.

Filter the home search online to find homes near you or pick up a guide book at local libraries. (I have six homes within walking distance in my part of Minneapolis alone.) Here’s when you can check it out:

Visit Energy Efficient Homes on Tour for your Warners’ Stellian coupon

March 16, 2011

Those who’ve been on the Parade of Homes tour know the fun of imagining their own dream home, and perhaps even building it.

Hanley Wood just rated three Minnesota counties within its top 10 of 25 counties for remodeling potential in 2011, but there’s something to be said for new homes.

Not only are they just plain new with style and amenities unavailable elsewhere, they offer unparalleled options for energy efficiency.

From the tour:

All Minnesota new homes are constructed to some of the strictest energy standards in the nation. But some go a step beyond. That’s what our new Energy Efficient Home Tour is all about. The Parade of Homes is showcasing those homes that are proven energy savers, in which the builder has taken an added measure to ensure that they perform to even tighter energy standards.

While some are certified ENERGY STAR®, MN GreenStar, LEED-H, or Wisconsin Green Build, all have been rated by an independent firm to verify that they are, indeed, energy-efficient homes.

Energy efficient doesn’t mean inaccessible. EEHT homes begin as low as a $138,000 townhouse in Rosemount.

And, if you visit an Energy Tour home, pick up a special coupon good at Warners’ Stellian for 10% off Select ENERGY STAR appliances and cooking appliances. Offer good on orders $499.95 through April 30 (restrictions apply). ENERGY STAR appliances use up to 50% less energy and water than standard new appliances, saving you money in the long run even though they usually cost a little bit extra at the time of purchase.

Which Parade of Homes should I visit?

March 5, 2010

Parade of Homes Spring Preview Showcase starts today. Pick up an official tour book at any Holiday Station store to plot out your plan of attack.

Warners’ Stellian is part of the 2010 Showroom Tour and by stopping into our stores, you have a chance to win Minnesota Twins tickets through the Builders Association of Minnesota and KS95’s Local Listener Club. We’ll have a limited amount of cards with special bonus points cards at each of our six Twin Cities locations.

Not sure where to start? I put together homes in this season’s tour from some of our favorite builders, in case you need some help.

Your turn: which houses look good to you? Will you even make it to the tour this year?
