Elegant home interior

Twin Cities Artisan Home Tour starts Friday. Five highlights.

With rising interest rates, supply chain challenges and limited inventory, it’s not necessarily easy to buy, build or remodel right now.

Still, for the price of a ticket ($30-$5), people can check out the latest trends in home design — and meet local builders and remodelers who are up for meeting those challenges — in the upcoming Artisan Home Tour.

The ninth annual tour is produced by Housing First Minnesota, a trade association for residential builders, remodelers, developers and building industry suppliers; it is also the organization behind the Parade of Homes.

Some of the proceeds from this tour will benefit the organization’s Housing First Minnesota Foundation, a nonprofit that builds and remodels transitional housing for Minnesotans in need.

The 2022 Artisan Home Tour opens on Friday (June 10) and runs on weekends through June 26. This year, the tour features 17 new homes; the final weekend, June 24-26, will also highlight six remodeled homes.
