The Buffalo Niagara Builders’ Association kicks off its annual Horizons Tour of Homes this Thursday starting at 3 p.m. The show runs over two long weekends, July 18-21 and July 25-28. Visitors can tour the homes Thursday and Friday from 3 to 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets are $9 and can be purchased at the organization’s website at bnba.org, via the ParadeCraze app or at any of the tour home locations.
Because of the multiple locations, tickets are good for both weekends. Visitors are welcome to visit the homes as many times as they like throughout the duration of the show.
This year’s show features 20 spectacular homes built by seven local home builders with locations from the Northtowns to the Southtowns. Communities include Amherst, Clarence, Clarence Center, East Amherst, Grand Island, Hamburg, Lancaster, Orchard Park and Williamsville. Participating builders are Bliss Custom Homes, David Homes, Essex Homes, Forbes Capretto Homes, Marrano, Natale Builders and Regency Builders, LLC.
The experience includes a variety of home styles, from traditional two-story single-family homes and single level ranch homes to patio home and townhouses. Representatives from the builders will also be on hand to answer any questions.
“The Buffalo Niagara Builders’ Association is very excited to showcase the unique layouts, designs and the latest in-home technology. This year’s Horizons Tour of Homes features the finest home builders across the most spectacular communities in Western New York,” said Mark Longo, chairman of the 2019 Horizons Tour of Homes committee.
The Horizons Tour of Homes is a “can’t miss” event for anyone contemplating building a new home or interested in the latest trends in home building. The professional skills and capabilities of local home builders will be on full display, and each home will be staged and landscaped.
“The home-building industry continues to evolve at a record pace. As public relations chairman for the Buffalo Niagara Builders’ Association, our member homebuilders continue to collaborate on the many issues impacting our industry ranging from design trends to federal ordinances and tariffs affecting supply and demand. The annual Horizons Home Show is an absolute reflection of that collaboration, as well as the skills and experience of the many tradesman, suppliers, technicians and sales professionals involved in the process from start to finish,” said Philip J. Nanula, president & CEO of Essex Homes of WNY.
Visitors can expect to see the latest in cabinetry, countertops, flooring, windows, tiles, lighting and more. It all comes together in the form of spectacular kitchens, spa-like baths, stunning great rooms and even expanded mud rooms and butler pantries. The show is meant to showcase latest trends in new home building, and it promises to be one of the best.
“Each and every beautiful home that visitors will walk through during the Horizons Tour of Homes reflects the commitment, expertise and imagination of the best in the building industry across Western New York and beyond,” added Nanula.
