It's a chance to check out the lasted in home design and interior decorating... for free. The Parade of Homes starts this Friday and continues on weekends through October 20th.
Dozens of homes are featured including one in Hardin Valley.
Visitors will notice a combination of stone and brick on the outside. Inside this house on Jakes Walk Lane, crews are working toward the Friday opening of the Parade of Homes.
"Where else can you for free get top go through 39 homes ranging from $140,000 to $2,000,000 and get to see all the cutting edge materials and styles that are going in to homes these days," Hunter Purnell with McCamy Construction said.
He is the Chairman of the Parade of Homes and the contractor for the house.
During a brief tour of the home he pointed out the custom fireplace. "The stone that we got, we went all the way to a quarry in Crossville to get it and this came in one big block no seams on it," he said.
The dining room features crown molding, columns, and an inset in one wall.
His favorite room is the kitchen.
"The new custom quartz that that everyone is really enjoying and liking right now. Custom cabinets that we got from Dixie Kitchens. Stainless steel GE appliances."
Above the stove you'll see something common long ago and starting to show up in new homes. It's called a pot filler. It allows cooks to fill a pot with water without carrying it to the kitchen sink.
That's just one of the surprises people will notice as they tour the homes.
"What better way to get people excited about what we're doing then being able to walk and see our work," he said.
The master suite features his and her closets and a luxurious master bath, vanities on either side, a separate water closet, spacious tub with separate large shower, all in a neutral grey and white.
Then there's the two story living room.
"The owners wanted it to feel very open and spacious and flow not only to the outdoor patio but also into the kitchen for entertainment so we vaulted the ceilings, opened up this wall more so if someone is working in the kitchen they don't feel cut off from the rest of everyone in here hanging out," he said.
Folks from O.P. Jenkins are staging the furniture while the finishing touches are put on the patio and outdoor spaces.
The Parade of Homes opens to the public Friday.
Hunter Purnell said, "We'll be ready."
