2007 Showcase of Homes Tour

Not long after we bought our house, we found out that the five houses being built directly behind ours were part of the 2007 Showcase Homes. It has been quite interesting watching the progress over the last couple of months. The Showcase of Homes was open to the public the last two weekends. For $9 you could tour all five of the homes. Saturday afternoon after Mom and I did a little shopping and ran some errands we toured the homes. We had a good time but it took a couple hours and by the time we were finished my feet were throbbing!

All the homes were beautiful and had some good ideas but my personal favorite was the "Bolder Crest".
It is pretty close to my dream house vision. There was a rustic feel and yet it was very modern in design. I took a lot of pictures and collected some good ideas to put in my idea book! Here are some Highlights . . .
The Kitchen is a cook's dream, complete with a tin ceiling!! So Cool!

The Living Room, Mom loved the leather sectional. . .

Our Favorite part was the outside entertaining area.
In one of the other houses . . .
One of my favorite trends right now is stained & scored concrete floors.
