A house of a different designer

You may have toured the Remodelers Showcase last weekend and a few Parade of Homes houses along the way. But a home designed by an architect is a “product of a different process.”

What’s that? You don’t understand what that means, product of a different process? Why, we’ll show you, then!

Coincidentally, the Homes by Architects Tour happens this Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 19-20 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

From the tour guide (available in PDF format):

This tour has 20 homes that cover a wide variety of architectural styles, designed for each client. You will see simple to avant-garde and modest to generous budgets; a cross-section of lifestyles from lakeside to city loft to farmhouses; and functional design decisions in material and citing meant to make the most of materials and land.

Warners’ Stellian enthusiastically sponsors the Homes by Architects Tour and is proud to have supplied appliances in some breathtakingly designed homes.

Again, we’re biased, but at least we’re honest. If you only have time for a half-dozen, here’s the six you can’t miss:

CITYDESKSTUDIO, INC., #3
