Participating builders this year include Beazer Homes, Frost Interiors, Sotherby, and McCollum & Associates. All of these builders took part in the event last year. In 2006 McCollum built The Enchanted Cottage/Opportunity House, a brightly colored showcase of colors complete with white picket fence and the porch light on, welcoming you home. Janet White Interiors did the inside of the house which could be seen from the outside. Numerous building partners helped put the house together.
Last year Seahorse Manor, built by Frost, had a green balcony railing and two stories of a palette of rainbow vision. The house was designed by Michael Land who came up with the concept.
In 2006 Beazer’s Express Depot was a tiny red and beige home with Brent Couch as the architect and Signature Mechandising working as the interior designer.
Last year’s Little House on the Prairie house was built by Sotherby. The Plan Shop and Phil Satzman did the architecture and design using colors of yellow, green, and pink.
Major partners this year include Beazer, C.H. Robinson, Citibank, First Horizon Home Loans, and Tiffany & Company.
The 14th Annual Parade of Homes was held in 2005 at Stonebridge Ranch.
