Time Warp

The 2006 BIA Parade of Homes began today in Central Ohio.

The BIA websites have a list of earlier Parade of Homes.  I love showing former Parade of Homes houses, sometimes they are caught in a time warp.  Sometimes the decorating is so extreme and it looks so great at the parade and ten years later is so dated but 25 plus years later it is retro.

Sometimes it's hard for a client to look beyond the decorating in a Parade Home.  A couple times clients have built the model without the upgrades and been disappointed because it doesn't "look like" the model.  What's missing?  The decorating and some of the fancy upgrades.

Thanks for the comment.  I think most of the public is at the Parade of Homes  for decorating ideas anyway... they barely see the houses for all the decorating. Maureen
