Thinking about home improvement this spring? If you're free Tuesday evening, this is your chance to move your dream project closer to reality — at "Inspired House," a panel discussion focused on home design and remodeling, featuring local architects.

You'll see other homeowners' inspired makeovers, and get a chance to chat with architects about your project. You'll also see this year's Home of the Month contest winners, which will be announced that night at the event.

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.
