Home-A-Rama is back for a three weekend run.
“We are thrilled to be resurrecting the Home-A-Rama after a five-year break,” said Steve Lains, CEO of the Builder’s Association of Greater Indianapolis. “For the past 14 months, we have seen new home permit numbers continue to rise which is a sign of a growing economy in central Indiana. That upward movement makes it a perfect time to showcase some amazing homes and the latest trends in the industry.”
Home-A-Rama is a chance to tour homes and see the latest in products, design and technology. This year’s event features four homes in the Village of West Clay.
“They are all distinct and diverse in their own way,” said Carrie Cason, director of communications for the association. “There are unique touches in each house that are must-sees. The technology that is out there right now – I didn’t even know some of it existed. I think people will walk in and be shocked at that and the design trends as it relates to decorating and landscaping.”
All four of the homes – which range in price from $700,000 to $900,000 – have been sold.
“For me it is very special because my company is celebrating its 20-year anniversary in the custom home-building industry, and the very first house I built 20 years ago was in a Brenwick community right here in Carmel,” said David Klain. Klain Construction built one of this year’s featured homes. “It is great to be a part of the first home show that we have had as an industry here in the greater Indy metro area in many years.”
The other builders participating this year are Brookshire Homes, Gradison Design Build and Wedgewood Building Company; plus other association-member vendors and developer Brenwick Development.
The 2013 Home-A-Rama is noon to 8 p.m. Oct. 10 through 13, Oct. 17 through 20, and Oct. 24 through 27. Tickets are $12. For more information visit www.bagi.com.
