The Dream Home for the Spring Remodelers Showcase on March 26-28 is a Minnesota Modern stunner with five bedrooms and four bathrooms at 633 Ashland Ave. PHOTO COURTESY OF THE Parade of Homes

Housing First Minnesota will present the 2021 Spring Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase from March 26-28. Thirty-four remodeled homes will be open for public viewing with COVID-19 precautions in place to ensure the public’s safety.

Access to the homes will be limited to 10 people at a time and facemasks will be required. The tour is designed to let families see real projects and learn how remodeling can help them remain in their neighborhoods when their homes no longer fit their needs.

Local homes on the tour include:

  • 2266 Goodrich Ave. The 1917 home was built during the onset of the Spanish Flu and was fully remodeled during the COVID-19 pandemic. Quartersawn Design & Build worked with the homeowners to preserve the character of the original design, while adding space and 21st-century amenities, including an open floor plan, mudroom addition, walk-in pantry, exercise room and luxurious owners’ suite.
  • 701 Stewart Ave. The project by Enerjac Construction blends a 1900s home and additional 1,600-square-feet of space. It features a gourmet kitchen expansion and remodel, a main-floor owners’ suite with soaking tub and walk-in closet, a mudroom and laundry room, and a full basement woodshop. A second-floor in-law suite above a new garage includes a living room, craft room, laundry room and bedroom/bath suite.

The tour is designed to let families see real projects and learn how remodeling can help them remain in their neighborhoods when their homes no longer fit their needs.

  • 633 Ashland Ave. The showcase’s Dream Home, this five-bedroom, four-bathroom Minnesota Modern stunner is a blend of Sustainable 9 Design+Build’s signature contemporary style in a more traditional neighborhood. The eat-in kitchen opens into a family room featuring a wood fireplace and access to a screened porch. There is also a main-floor mudroom and powder room. Upstairs the owners’ suite features an oval soaking tub, eclectic tile patterns and balcony. The lower-level bar and entertainment area includes a sauna and exercise room, and there is a rare three-car garage on this urban lot.

The Remodelers Showcase will run from noon-6 p.m. from Friday through Sunday, March 26-28. Admission is free, except for the Dream Home on Ashland that has a $5 admission charge to support Housing First Minnesota Foundation’s efforts to build housing for homeless Minnesotans and veterans.

Free guidebooks are now available at local Holiday Stationstores. For information and to review the safety recommendations for this spring’s tour, visit paradeofhomes.org.
