Parade of renovated homes offers peek-a-boos for looky-loos

Greater Vancouver Homebuilders showcase 22 home renos across Metro Vancouver

It’s back and bigger than ever.

On Sunday, June 8 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. the Parade of  Renovated Homes, presented by the Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) and sponsored by FortisBC, will showcase a record-breaking 22 professionally renovated homes across Metro Vancouver.

“Professional RenoMark renovators, many of them award-winners, will be on site to offer expert advice and discuss their craftsmanship. The renovators are very proud of being part of a professional industry which helps consumers transform their houses into dream homes,” said Bob de Wit, CEO of GVHBA.

The parade offers a limitless train of show-stopping renovation inspirations including the beautiful redesign of a century-old home, the transformation of a 1970s home into a man’s dream retreat, incredible kitchen makeovers, and a Craftsman-style home that was renovated to create more space and accessibility for the family.

Admission is by passport, available at each home for $10 per person. Children 17 and under are free. Passports can be purchased at any home, and then used for entry to the remaining homes.

Viewing time is limited to six hours so make sure to plan your personal parade before heading out. See www.gvhba.org/events/eventcalendar for map, before and after pictures and location/renovator details.

Part proceeds from the sale of passports will be used to fund the purchase of tools, building materials and safety gear for a carpentry training program offered by Guildford Park and Frank Hurt Secondary Schools in Surrey, helping satisfy the growing need for skilled workers to build new housing and renovate existing stock.
