Have you recently remodeled your home? Does your home have a notable feature that catches people's attention? Has your home been maintained or renovated in a way that respects the craftsmanship and design characteristics appropriate for its distinct style and era? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should nominate your home for the 18th annual Minneapolis & Saint Paul Home Tour, taking place the weekend of May 7-8, 2005.
The Home Tour is an inspiring celebration of city living that brings thousands of home enthusiasts together for a weekend of sharing remodeling ideas and new rental and ownership opportunities. The tour showcases a wide variety of homes including vintage Queen Annes, hip downtown condos and lofts, cozy bungalows and charming Arts & Crafts. Last year, more than 10,000 visitors made nearly 50,000 visits to the 50 homes on the tour. In addition, five neighborhood tours gave visitors a more in-depth look at the communities supporting these homes.
Nomination forms can be obtained on the official Home Tour Web site at www.msphometour.com
or by calling Brett at 612-673-5158. The deadline for nominations is Friday, February 18, 2005.
The Minneapolis & Saint Paul Home Tour is presented by the NRP in cooperation with the cities of Minneapolis and Saint Paul and others. The Home Tour's most important partners, of course, are the hosts who volunteer to open their homes.
