Real Homes. Real People. Real Ideas.
April 28–29, 2012

This weekend offers an opportunity to take a FREE, self-guided tour of 60 Twin Cities remodeled and/or reinvented homes. See homes projects that were both “on-a-budget” and “blow out”. You can tour examples of remodeled kitchens and baths, room additions, and whole house renovations.

These projects are unique in that they cover a wide range of housing eras. The home tour is also unique in that homeowners, contractors and/or architects are available to discuss the projects with visitors. This is a wonderful way to learn about remodeling, meet contractors and architects, and discover different neighborhoods.

This is the twenty-fifth year of the Minneapolis and Saint Paul Home Tour. It all began when some Minneapolis real estate agents and city officials were concerned about suburban flight. They took it upon themselves to promote city living and the home tour was born.

Homes will be open to visitors:

  • Saturday, April 28, 2012 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • Sunday, April 29, 2012 from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The home tour will take place regardless of weather conditions.

It’s the 24th Annual Home Tour in the Twin Cities. The tour is an opportunity to see numerous interesting remodeling and expansion projects in homes throughout the two cities. It’s also an opportunity to get a sense of various neighborhoods.

The tour features homes with the following renovation projects:

  • Whole-house renovations
  • Space additions, basement and attic finishing
  • Kitchen remodel
  • Bathroom remodel/addition
  • Historic preservation, adaptation
  • Green construction or solar features
  • Landscaping
