Maybe your home is showing its age. Or maybe your lifestyle has changed — a bigger family, an empty nest — and your home needs to change along with it.

If you're thinking about remodeling and wondering how to make the most of your home and your budget, you'll find fresh inspiration at "Inspired House," a panel discussion Tuesday evening, focused on home design and remodeling, featuring local architects.

You'll see other homeowners' inspired makeovers, and also get a chance to chat with architects about your project. And if you like being in the know, you'll be there for the big reveal of this year's Home of the Month contest winners.

The contest, sponsored by the Minnesota chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the Star Tribune, showcases the best in local homes designed or remodeled by architects. Who knows? The home makeover you're dreaming of today could wind up being one of next year's winners. □
