Whether you're dreaming of building a home — or reinventing one you own — here's a chance to gain insights from the experts. Architects and homeowners will share strategies at "Your Home, Your Way," an evening of architecture and design presented by AIA Minnesota and the Star Tribune.

Panelists representing this year's Home of the Month selections will offer an inside look at their projects, as well as answer your questions.

You'll have the opportunity to chat with architects and ask questions about your personal project. Or sign up for a 30-minute one-on-one consultation ($20) with a residential design professional.

The event begins at 5:30 p.m. (cocktail hour), followed by the program at 6:30 p.m. on April 18 at the American Swedish Institute, 2600 Park Av. S., Mpls. Admission is $20 in advance ($25 at the door), which includes a buffet of hors d'oeuvres (cash bar). Register at aia-mn.org/event/homeofthe month.
