I love getting a sneak peek into other people’s homes—it’s a side effect of my childhood obsession with Harriet the Spy and my adulthood obsession with design. Usually, I can feed my habit with a hefty dose of design blogs and my work here at Midwest Home, but that doesn’t mean I won’t jump at a new opportunity. Lucky for me (and you!) there’ll be one this weekend: The AIA Homes by Architects Tour lets you look inside 14 homes designed by Minnesota architects. It’s a rare chance to see a variety of local talent and gain some insight into the process of turning a basic dwelling into a carefully crafted home.
Tour takes place September 17th and 18th from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Tickets available for $15 through September 16th at homesbyarchitects.org; $20 at any home on the tour during the weekend.
