The Builders Association of the Twin Cities (BATC) is adding a new, ticketed home tour this summer to its stable of Parade of Homes events.

The Artisan Home Tour will feature 25 "artisan-quality homes" during its inaugural run June 7-15, 2014. Here's BATC's description of the qualifications: "All the homes on the tour are built by members of the BATC and the home plans were reviewed by an architectural review panel to ensure architectural integrity and high-quality finish level."

Tickets: Online for $25 or at the door for $30, or $5 for an individual home. Half the net proceeds of ticket sales will be donated to BATC’s charitable arm, the BATC Foundation, which builds and remodels homes for families in need.

For more info: ArtisanHomeTour.org is online now. Guidebooks will also be published and distributed by direct mail to some households and will be included with the Summer issue of Artful Living Magazine. Guidebooks may also be picked up at participating homes.
