Last year, my house remodel project was on the Raleigh-Wake County Remodelers Tour and it was a very fun and exhausting weekend. This year the tour is on April 26th and 27th and I am looking forward to getting out to see the other places rather than stand around and greet 350 people walking through my house. The tour is totally free and you just drive around to the locations to see what was renovated. Some are large renovations and some are small like a single bathroom. Some are landscaping and some are fairly massive home additions. Kitchens and bathrooms are most likely on the list.
You can visit all the places or just those that you want to see. There are details and PDF documents on the site as the date nears. (Check out the "Details Page" for PDFs of each remodel.) The list of contractors and the map of locations are now current as of March 11th.
We will have a pot luck at my house before we head out to visit the houses. (Location will be emailed to attendees nearer the event.) One cluster of locations are in the Glenwood area which is very close. Another wider cluster is to the west in Cary and Apex. After lunch, we will head out in different directions depending on who wants to see what. For example, I'll be checking out kitchens and bathrooms for my future renovations.
Since this is going to be one of those unusual events, we may make up the rules as we go along. People can self-organize if they want to continue socializing afterwards.
