Parade Homes ~ Southern Style
The Annual Birmingham Parade of Homes presented by the Greater Birmingham Associations of Home Builders was held two weekends this month. Lovely southern belles welcomed all, thousands over two weeks. I always try to attend and tour at least several of the many homes scattered throughout the city. It is a lot of fun and May is usually very hot but the hosts always serve plenty of cold water, lemonade and snacks. I enjoy seeing the latest in home design, new building materials and appliances. Anyone looking to buy a first home, a family that has outgrown their home and needs more space and of course empty nesters looking to downsize, something here for everyone. New colors, beautiful landscaping and inspiration for those thinking of building. Be warned, a lot of photos! So here we go, enjoy.
