Welcome to the brand new website for the NW Natural Parade of Homes! I’ve been around this home show for almost 40 years. Each year we have always highlighted amazing style and beauty inside the show homes. Now, our outsides—our website—reflects the elegance and beauty that has always been a part of Southwest Washington’s premier home show!

The new website is not just a pretty face, it’s your best source for show information and tickets. Did you know that if you buy online you save $2 off the gate price? You will also find valuable coupons, driving directions and details on the many events that happen at the Parade.

As a custom home builder I know first-hand how much creativity, careful planning, nail-biting and sweat goes into building a show home. You can meet our show builders and get a sneak peek of their masterpieces in the Homes section of the new site.

We’re connecting with home show enthusiasts in more ways than ever. The Parade of Homes blog will feature regular stories from people that are far more interesting than me! Show builders, designers and event sponsors will all provide an insider’s look as the homes take shape over the summer. I’m sure there will be fun contests and other surprises, as well!

Of course, we encourage you to add your input. We would love to see photos from your visit on our new Instagram page. Chime in on Facebook and feel free to leave comments here on the blog.

Thanks for visiting. I’m honored to serve as the 2015 Chairman for the NW Natural Parade of Homes. I look forward to seeing you at the show in September!
