GVHBA invites public to tour renovated homes

The Greater Vancouver Home Builders' Association invites you to its annual Parade of Renovated Homes.

The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association is inviting people to tour 11 professionally renovated homes in the Lower Mainland on June 9 on their annual Parade of Renovated Homes.

Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., visitors will be able to look around the homes and talk with the renovators.

“Professional RenoMark renovators, many of them award winners, will be on-site to offer expert advice and discuss their craftsmanship,” says GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit. “Project values range widely, offering homeowners an abundance of ideas they can incorporate into their own renovations.”

Admission is by passport and will cost $10 per person. Children 17 and under are free. You can purchase your passport at any home on the tour, and can use it at all of the others as well. Visit www.gvhba.org for a full list of participating homes, including photos and project descriptions. Because the homes are private residences, the tour is only open during the posted event date and times.

“FortisBC is extremely excited to again be the presenting sponsor of this popular consumer event,” says FortisBC regional energy solutions manager Dan Noel. “We look forward to combining the strengths of GVHBA and FortisBC to help the renovation industry in Metro Vancouver achieve innovative and successful results when it comes to their projects and energy requirements.”
