COOKEVILLE – After a successful tour last summer, the Home Builders Association of the Upper Cumberland is returning with its second Parade of Homes event Aug. 23-24 in Cookeville and surrounding areas.
This year, the tour has been expanded to include six newly constructed and two remodeled homes to offer attendees a variety of styles and even more inspiring ideas.
The parade allows visitors the opportunity to speak to builders, ask questions and see various innovative products included in each home. The goal, said Melanie Chadwell, Home Builders Association executive officer, is inspire with the latest trends in new home construction and interior design, as well as innovations in remodeling – all in real neighborhoods located throughout the Upper Cumberland.
This year’s homes are located in Putnam County and beyond. They include:
• 330 New Heritage Drive, Cookeville/Andy Hammock Construction/Andy Hammock
• 2999 Bear Creek Road, Cookeville/BJP Construction/Roslyn and Ray Wear
• 1775 Eagle Landing Drive, Cookeville/BK Homes/Brad and Shelia Eicholtz
• 1233 Locust Grove Road and 995 Locust Grove Road, Cookeville (located off Highway 70 toward Baxter)/Borrowed Mule Builders/Harry Bennett
• 125 Mountain Harbor Drive, Sparta (RiverWatch)/Cavenders/Honest Abe
• 3910 Plantation Drive Cookeville/HD Homes/Matt Davidson and Seth Hudson
• 1525 Doris Drive, Cookeville/Phipps Properties/Mike Phipps
“Since our Home Builders Association includes all of the Upper Cumberland counties, we are excited to expand outside of Cookeville this year,” Chadwell said. “The home in RiverWatch is between Sparta and Smithville, so we especially encourage visitors from White and DeKalb counties to attend.”
Admission is $5, and tickets are available at each house during Parade hours, which are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 23, and noon-4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 24.
