The 2013 AIA Homes by Architects Tour Countdown Begins!

The 2013 AIA Minnesota Homes by Architects Tour is right around the corner! Spend Saturday, Sept. 21 and Sunday, Sept. 22 exploring 23 beautiful new and remodeled homes designed by talented Minnesota-based residential architects.

“I think the amazing thing about this tour is that it serves as a powerful tool to educate homeowners about what it’s like to work with an architect and demonstrates that having an architect-designed home or remodel can easily become a reality for homeowners,” notes Angie McKinley of AIA Minnesota.

With so many amazing homes, you’ll want to experience as many as you can. Glance through the tour maps provided on the Homes by Architects tour website to help navigate your way through the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota, and western Wisconsin. Time is running out to purchase your tickets in advance. Get them online before 4 p.m. this Friday, Sept. 20 or at the AIA Minnesota office during business hours.

“It’s amazing to think of all the thousands of hours and thousands of people that touch each house to bring it into existence,” states tour chair member Ashley Mitlyng. “This is one experience you won’t want to miss. We look forward to seeing you at the 2013 AIA Homes by Architects Tour.”
