What kinds of homes are featured on the Tour?

The tour features a variety of homes in neighborhoods throughout Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Homes on the tour are chosen to reflect the quality, variety and history of city housing, and living styles. By popular demand, the focus is on remodeling and expansion of existing, occupied homes…from a single room such as a kitchen or bath, to a multi-story addition or entire home renovation.

New homes selected are generally examples of energy-efficient or green construction, or non-profit and government-sponsored projects. For example, multi-family rental represents a current trend with significant impact on neighborhoods and transit.
