Professionally renovated homes open to public
The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) invites the public to tour professionally renovated homes located across Metro Vancouver, on Sunday, June 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The 20th annual Parade of Renovated Homes, produced by the GVHBA Renovation Council and sponsored by FortisBC, showcases leading-edge design, advanced construction techniques and products, and energy-saving features.
"FortisBC is extremely excited to again be the presenting sponsor of this popular consumer event. 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," said Dan Noel, FortisBC regional energy solutions manager.
Renovations on display range from gourmet kitchen makeovers to whole-house transformations.
GVHBA CEO Bob de Wit said this popular one-day event offers exceptional sample renovations.
“Professional RenoMark renovators, many of them award winners, will be on site to offer expert advice and discuss their craftsmanship. Homeowners will take home an abundance of ideas they can incorporate into their own renovations,” said de Wit.
Admission will be by passport, available at each home for $10 per person. Children 17 and under were free. Passports could be purchased at any home, and then used for entry to the remaining homes. Part proceeds from passport sales will help 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.
More information about the participating locations will be posted on this page in mid-May.
