The Parade of Homes Remodelers Showcase happened this past weekend, October 1-3. If you have renovation plans in the works, this tour was a great way to start your inspiration! Thirty-Nine homes were featured this year, style varied from eclectic vibe, to lake cottage and modern.

Remodeling may be the best option if your style and tastes no longer fit but you want to stay in your current neighborhood. If you are considering taking on a renovation project, there are some important decisions to make.

The tour featured many different vendors, and when you are planning a remodel, it is critical you choose a trustworthy team.

* Define your objectives; are you focusing on function or flow?
* Choose the things you most use, need and love. Or maybe your remodeled space is made to entertain by turning your vision of a custom kitchen into reality.
* Determine budget and financing. Build your wishlist by wants vs needs. How much are you willing to spend? Will your property value support your improvements?
* Research remodelers, interview top contenders and contact references.

Follow these tips and you will achieve that dream look you’ve wanted!

Pencil in your calendar for the next Parade of Homes & the Remodelers Showcase starting in March. For more information, head over to paradeofhomes.org

Summer Travel: Post Pandemic

July 27, 2021

minnesota-road-map-square

In many households, we have been slowly recovering from the pandemic and families have started to travel again this summer!

For many, life’s feeling “normal” and it feels so good!

We officially still have a month of summer left to enjoy and it is not too late to take a road trip to a different destination here in Minnesota.  My family is personally taking a “road trip” to Duluth and the North Shore.

Here are a few of our own state’s roadside attractions to check out:

* Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox – Bemidji, MN

* Otto the Otter – Fergus Falls

* Pelican Pete – Pelican Rapids

* Jolly Green Giant – Blue Earth

* Cuyuna Lakes Area – enjoy the main street of Crosby & check out mine lake

* Grand Portage – located almost to the Canada border & has the highest waterfall in the state

* Taylor’s Falls – enjoy hiking, paddling & local cafes

Tell us what your first travel experience was like post pandemic. Did you have hiccups, did you feel the appropriate safety precautions were put in place?

Happy traveling!
