Spring 2010 Parade of Homes

Posted on April 10, 2010 by under Things to Do.    

Today was the first day of the Spring 2010 Parade of Homes. I had a lot of fun checking out the model homes with Brian, Misty and Darcy. Out of all of us, Darcy is actually the only one seriously in the market for a new house. Misty, Brian and I were out and about just for fun. LOL.

We started out with the more realistic houses at Auburn Hills. Darcy is very interested in The Woods, one of the subdivisions within Auburn Hills. Being a Parade of Homes virgin, we naturally had to take Misty to the million dollar model homes. LOL.

Sometimes when you start out with the million dollar houses, the other houses (despite being great in their own right) just pale in comparison. So we planned our route to check out the model homes in ascending value.

We were already on the West side of town so we checked out a few houses at Fiddler’s Cove in Maize, Kansas. Then we drove all the way to the East to check out Flint Hills National in Andover. These houses are so amazing that we were Ooohhh-ing and Aaahh-ing all over the place.

Check out some of the pictures that I took from this afternoon’s adventure:


A grand entrance.


A beautiful kitchen in one of the model homes.


Another kitchen; different model home.


Now, that’s a kitchen!

sunroom office

Nice little desk area. Brian loved the built-in window seat.




Basement bar with granite counters.


No basement is complete without a pool table and media room


Nice bathroom.


This amazing shower can fit a dozen people. Easy.


Double doors that lead from the master suite to the master bath.


Imagine enjoying a bath by the fire in this spectacular tub. Yes, that’s a fireplace on the wall.

basement bar

A great basement with a bar and space for a poker table. Nice.


Misty and Brian taking a break. Exploring all of these houses is a lot of work. LOL.
