Parade of Homes 2009

We went to the Parade of Homes this weekend and got a ton of great ideas for when we build.  We went to all 22 houses in two days.  We prefer the lighter colored homes and all the detail work in the wood working.  The wrapped windows, doors, crown molding were gorgeous.  We also were getting ideas for colors and types of countertops, faucets, fixtures, door styles, exterior materials, flooring and tile.  There were so many little details we never thought of.  We have so much to process and things to chose from!

A few houses had these huge home theater rooms with the most luxurious recliner chairs

This house was one of our absolute favorites because of all the wood working detail, the classic traditional personality, and the warm feeling you had when you went in

There was a mini house outback for the owner’s grandkids, it was so cute!  The kitchen was so petite
