The Lakes Region Parade of Homes, hosted by the Lakes Region Builders & Remodelers Association (LRBRA), returns this fall for another showcase of the Lakes Region’s newest custom built and remodeled homes. The 2019 tour will feature 11 homes, and there will be over 50,000 square feet of space for visitors to explore over the Columbus Day Weekend, Oct. 12-14, 2019, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. daily.
This year’s home tour will showcase eight communities: Alexandria, Bridgewater, Sanbornton, Gilford, Laconia, Meredith, Moultonborough and Tuftonboro. Of the 11 homes, seven are on the waterfront and four are extensive remodels. They range in size from 3,100 to more than 9,500 square feet in a variety of styles, including Adirondack-style, classic lake cottage, modern farm house, quintessential lake home, rustic ranch with contemporary highlights and one-of-a-kind custom timber-frames.
The home builders joining the 2019 parade include: AG Structures, Cargill Construction Co., Paul V. Fleming & Sons Construction, Home Comfort Retreat, Inter-lakes Builders, JC Hayes Construction, K.A. Clason Fine Woodworking, Key Day Builders, Lighthouse Contracting Group and Lauren Milligan Design, Meredith Bay, RH Stephens Builders Contractors.
“We are thrilled to have so many of our members participating in the Parade during this premier event,” said Brenda Richards, executive officer of LRBRA. ”The Parade of Homes is a longstanding tradition of our building association that shows the great work our members are providing for today’s homeowners.”
The three-day self-guided home tour offers prospective home buyers a chance to talk with builders about their building and remodeling plans and provides an opportunity for local residents to see the latest in custom home building. During the interactive tour, each ticket holder will receive a copy of the official guide book and ticket with a People’s Choice ballot to cast at the end of the tour as to which home resonated as their favorite. Visitors can also be entered to win prizes.
Tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased at the first home visited to begin the tour, or visitors can download the Parade Craze App and search Lakes Region Parade 2019 and order tickets beginning the week of the event. Ticket proceeds benefit a workforce development initiative to inspire the next generation of trade professionals. A single ticket is good for all weekend, and visitors can start at any house.
