Welcome to Home Builder's Association of Lane County's 34th Annual Tour of Homes

2019 Home Builders Association Tour of HomesThe Home Builders Association of Lane County Tour of Homes is back for its 34th year! We are proud to produce this popular civic event and we are delighted that you have taken this opportunity to join us!

Homeownership truly is an important part of the American way of life and today’s market offers unprecedented opportunities for those wishing to take advantage of building or purchasing a new home. There’s no better way to begin your homeownership search than by visiting with the builders who put roofs over our heads. The Tour of Homes provides you the opportunity to chat with the builders while you check out their latest work. This is your opportunity to build an understanding of construction techniques and check out some products you may want in your next home.

Advantages to new home ownership are the innovation and new construction techniques that make today’s new homes more efficient than ever. And, while they can be more affordable to operate, these new homes also are significantly more resource-efficient and environmentally friendly. In addition, these new homes are designed to accommodate today’s busy lifestyles with open floor-plans, flexible spaces, improved safety features and low-maintenance materials.

There really is no place like home. Although there are many positive financial aspects to homeownership, a home cannot be valued in monetary terms alone. Not only can homeownership be a steppingstone to greater financial well-being, it provides a permanent place to call home and great personal satisfaction. Homeownership is truly a cornerstone of the American way of life.

The 2019 Tour of Homes provides you the opportunity to visit with thirteen professional builders proudly showcasing their homes.

As you tour the homes please take photos, ask questions, make notes, and talk to the builders. All we ask in return is to respect the new homes and wear the provided booties over your shoes (no bare feet allowed). And, be sure to visit some of the interesting displays in garages that will introduce professional services and innovative products.

As you enjoy the Tour of Homes, please realize that it is the result of a large volunteer team investing enormous amounts of time and energy to ensure the tour’s success. We’d like to thank each and every one, as well as the Builders and Sponsors, for making it all possible.
