A little over 25 years ago, some Minneapolis real estate agents and city officials concerned about suburban migration invited the public into 40 homes to promote urban living. Today, that event is held annually and is known as the Minneapolis Saint Paul Home Tour.
This year's Minneapolis St. Paul Home Tour features 60 Twin Cities homes and occurs this weekend on April 28 and April 29. The unique, self-guided tour is an opportunity for people to see how homeowners have reinvented or rejuvenated older housing stock. Visitors can speak directly with homeowners about remodeling or expanding a home. Many contractors and architects will also be available to answer questions. Whether its remodeling a kitchen, gutting a bathroom or constructing an addition, this tour of “real homes, real people, real ideas” is sure to be inspirational.
The website says some things viewers can expect to see are:
- Ideas for remodeling
- Recent changes in the cities and glimpses into their past
- North Minneapolis recovery and remodeling stories following the tornado
The hours for the event are rain or shine:
- Saturday, April 28, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
- Sunday, April 29, 1-5 p.m.
