Parade of Homes will present 7 homes with the latest design trends | Local News
Seven homes showcasing the latest design trends will be on display during the East Texas Builders Association’s Fall Parade of Homes.
The houses will be on display from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Friday to Sunday and from November 12 to 14. Tickets cost $ 10 per person and are valid for the six-day Parade of Houses.
The Annual Home Parade is an optimal way for people to see the latest home products and trends as well as to meet the builders who created the homes.
âI think it’s a great place to get ideas and visit some homes. For me, when I can walk around a house, I have a better idea of ââspace, size and layout. You have a better idea of ââwhat the house looks like, âsaid Allison Goforth of Goforth Custom Builders. The company was founded by her husband, Tommy Goforth.
The Goforths have a house on display in the Parade of Autumn Houses. It is at 1293, chemin Mont Hall in Hallsville. Allison Goforth said the house reflects the personality of the client for whom it was built.
âIt’s very livable,â she says. âIt is very easy to feel at home when entering. “
The house has a modern farmhouse style with some planks throughout the house. It has an open concept living / dining area with a large kitchen island. There is also a room designed as a playroom which can later be converted into a study space.
âIt’s nice to have a flexible space that is what we need at the time,â she said.
Perry Wagoner, founder of Wagoner Custom Homes, said that for those looking to build or renovate, the Parade of Homes is a great place to get ideas and inspiration.
“It is also the opportunity to see the quality and the know-how of someone,” he said.
Wagoner Custom Homes will have two homes on the Parade of Homes. One is at 3061 Walker’s Mill Road in Hallsville; the other is at 145 Affirmed Ave. in Longview.
At the Walker’s Mill Road home, Wagoner said the home is about 900 feet from the road and his business will have three golf carts to take people home. The interior of the house features many contemporary elements, a waterfall kitchen island and a utility room with dog shower. The house has many energy efficient features and a variety of unique design elements.
Meanwhile, the home on Affirmed Avenue features a spacious chef’s kitchen, vaulted ceilings, a media room, and a back porch with an outdoor kitchen. It also has two connections for electric cars for those who want to buy one or two electric cars in the future.
Wagoner has been building homes for about nine years and said he believes in transparency with his clients, especially when it comes to the cost of building the home.
âMy goal is to give customers exactly what they want,â he said.
Other builders featured at the Fall Home Parade include Conaway Homes, Hamilton Group and Chris Hall Custom Homes. Tickets for the Parade of Houses can be purchased in person at any of the seven houses on the course or online at easttexasbuilders.org. Tickets are valid on six days of the parade.
