MBA Remodelers Showcase 13 Projects in Fall Remodelers Tour

(Waukesha, WI) October 2010 – The Metropolitan Builders Association is hosting its 26th Annual Fall Remodelers Tour, Saturday, October 9th and Sunday, October 10th. This scattered-site tour features thirteen remodeling projects that range in scope from whole house remodels to bathrooms, kitchens, master suites, lower levels, 2nd story additions, and more. The Tour allows attendees to get up close and personal with the quality offered by a variety of MBA remodelers. It’s the perfect way to research for an upcoming remodeling project and see different design solutions that have worked in a variety of homes.

Locally, remodelers are seeing projects that encompass more than one room on the rise. “While it is still possible to do a kitchen remodel, it is getting more common to see remodeling that has a direct impact on the rooms around it,” said Bill Hicks of Cream City Construction, Chairman of the Remodelers Council, “Some kitchen remodels provide the inspiration for additional changes in the adjoining family or dining room, but homeowners are also adding mud rooms, laundry rooms, bathrooms, or gathering rooms to the scope of their kitchen remodels. In fact, one type of smaller project that is most often linked to a kitchen remodel is the recreation of a back entry that replicates the back halls commonplace in today’s newer homes.”

While on the Tour, visitors can vote for their favorite project for the People’s Choice Award. By casting a vote, all entries will have a chance to win an Annual Membership to the Harley Davidson Museum, sponsored by WMYX radio.

The Fall Remodelers Tour runs Saturday, October 9th and Sunday, October 10th from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. One ticket allows visitors access to all 13 remodeling projects both days. Admission is $10 at tour sites, or $8 through discount ticket sellers or visiting MBAonline.org for a coupon. Patrons can receive $2 off the door price when they bring two non-perishable food items for the Hunger Task Force. Only cash is accepted for admission.
