The Home Builders Association of Lexington announces the details of this year’s Grand Tour of Homes Event. Over three dozen homes can be visited during a total of four days in July. The 2013 Tour of Homes is scheduled for July 13-14 and July 20-21. Self-guided tours of 38 select homes found in Woodford, Jessamine, Fayette, and Scott Counties are possible. Every effort has been made to offer a wide range of architectural styles. Enjoy the diversity of interior appointments featured as well. Prices range all the way from less than $120,000 to more than $900,000.
Take the Tour
From 1-5 pm each day, admission is free. During the Tour dates, visit as many homes as you’d like. Builders and/or their marketing representatives are available at each home to answer your questions and to highlight the latest and greatest features of each! You’ll find that they can offer excellent information as you gather ideas for your dream home.
Start with the “Virtual Tour,” pick your favorites, and map your route. At the first home you visit, be sure to grab a “Grand Tour of Homes Plan Book.” The Plan Book will offer additional insights about each home, and will will help guide you to your other visits on your self-guided tour.
2013 Home of Excellence Projects
Two special homes will showcase the collaborative talents of HBA builders. Homes at Birchwood Place and Gracemere Villa demonstrate dynamic current trends in new home construction. Both of these 2013 “Home of Excellence” projects feature highly efficient cooling and heating systems along with a wide variety of intriguing extras. The Birchwood Place home is at 2780 Kearney Creek Road. Meanwhile, you’ll find the Gracemere Villa residence at 2932 Blackford Pkwy.
Why HBA Certified Builders?
The advantages of purchasing from an HBA Certified Professional become obvious as you tour through these modern homes. On average, new homes built by HBA Certified Pros are about 30-percent more energy-efficient compared to used homes. Imagine the potential savings possible in the years to come. These savings are achieved in part through the use of the latest innovations in insulation, window construction, lighting, and HVAC systems. Materials in new homes help homeowners to significantly reduce their carbon footprint.
No builder qualifies to become certified as an HBA professional without first passing a rigorous examination. Once a member, each HBA builder must maintain the highest ethical standards and the best business practices. For more information about the 2013 Grand Tour of Homes, visit their website: click here.
