The Professional Remodelers Organization (PRO) of the Home Builders Association of Metropolitan Portland (HBAMP) announced that the 2012 Tour of Remodeled Homes would take place March 10 and 11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
* Tour: Featuring the latest in remodeling trends and smart sustainability, attendees will glean endless ideas to match any need or style. Empty-nesters and hipsters alike will appreciate a downtown condominium remodel, avid entertainers will envision lavish parties in a wine cellar decked to the nines and grandkids will find refuge in a whole house remodel on Oswego Lake.
* Tickets: The scattered home site tour will feature projects in Alameda, King's Heights, downtown and southwest Portland, Beaverton, Tualatin and Lake Oswego. A site map will be provided with tickets - available beginning Feb. 22 at www.remodeltourportland.com or www.ticketsoregon.com - for $17.50 apiece.
* Charity: A highlight on the tour will be the Cordero House where Janus Youth Programs provides shelter and emotional healing for abused boys.
The 96-year-old home was completely renovated with updated energy efficiencies. An estimated $800,000 was dedicated to the project with the help of more than 380 professionals, 90 companies and $400,000 in labor and material donations. The project received the national CADRE Award in 2011 for Outstanding Community Service Project.
* Who: The tour is produced annually by PRO of the HBAMP. PRO consists of the area's top remodelers, subcontractors and suppliers who work together to promote quality and professionalism in the home remodeling industry.
2012 tour sponsors include: Contract Furnishings Mart, Fixtures Gallery at Consolidated Supply Co., PARR Lumber, Fisher Roofing and Directors Mortgage.
