Visiting homes other than one's own can inspire decorative ideas for current dwellings or motivate admirers to slowly move their belongings in while tour guides aren't looking. Scope out potential spaces with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two one-day admissions to the 2011 BIA Parade of Homes in Delaware (a $24 value). The event runs June 11 through 26 with hours on Monday through Saturday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. and on Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Parking is an extra $2 per car; children 12 and under receive free admission.
The 2011 Building Industry Association (BIA) of Central Ohio’s Parade of Homes beckons homebodies to its meandering route of distinctive dwellings, allowing participants to view dream homes and glean helpful domestic tips for their own residences. Cross over the welcome mat of an Ambassador home complete with five bedrooms, three-car garage, and decorative cross-body sash, or explore the architectural splendor of a Fischer home or the spacious interiors of a Manor home. A four-bedroom New England home replicates the nostalgia of a Connecticut farmhouse with modern conveniences such as a finished basement and gourmet kitchen, and a P&D Builders home features stone accents and a fireplace so warm and giving that it helps pay the mortgage.
