The 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
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.
