The Minneapolis & Saint Paul Home Tour, April 29-30 2017, is accepting nominations at www.MSPHomeTour.com, click on “submit a home” for the option to apply online. Or request an application and more info by calling Margo Ashmore at 612-867-4874. One Northeast home is already committed, so the organizers are looking for at least two more. On the tour, homeowners share ideas with other home enthusiasts, based on their remodeling experience. Visitors are particularly interested in seeing period-accurate restoration and expansions sensitive to the surroundings. Being on the tour gives homeowners great feedback as well as the incentive to finish those last few projects. Margo Ashmore’s email is email@example.com. Organizers want to have visited nominated homes by early February.
