TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) – The Home Parade gives builders a chance to show off their construction and people to come up with ideas for their own homes.
This year, however, they are making a few changes.
“It’s usually a bit bigger, but this one is a bit smaller because we decided to split it,” said “So we’re going to have one now and then we’ll have one in October which will be more like a fall collection,” said Jennifer Smith, president of the Magic Valley Builders Association.
The reason for this is that many builders have had to either pull out of the parade or make changes to their homes due to supply chain issues and the wait time for their materials. Kanner Creek Custom Homes was one of them.
“It was a very emotional decision for me, I like to show what we general contractors and my subcontractors can do, and not being in the parade this year is pretty terrible for me,” Leroy said. Harcourt, of Kanner Creek Custom. Houses.
Harcourt made the decision about a month ago to step down from the parade. He says he’s been preparing since the end of the parade last year, so it was a tough decision.
“It was a challenge. We ordered the metal roof outside six months ago and finally got it in place, a lot of the specialty wood we order we can’t fit in so what we have to do is settle,” Harcourt said.
This parade includes nine houses and a virtual tour, and the Magic Valley Builders Association hopes people will enjoy it this year.
“We also have a handful of new builders this year coming in, and we’ve never seen what they have to offer. It’s nice, plus there’s a lot of new people coming here who haven’t seen this before, so it’s a good way to look at (the) location, figure out where you want to build, figure out what type of style you want go for it,” Smith said.
The parade takes place from Friday June 17-19 and Friday June 24-26.
