If everything went to plan, this summer’s Homearama would have ended this past weekend. However, unforeseen construction delays pushed the event from the previously scheduled time frame of June 8-23 to July 13-28.
The start of the show will be the latest summer start in the 51-year history of the home showcase. There will be six homes, priced from $850,000 to $1.2 million, on display at this year’s show. For the first time, all homes have been pre-sold.
“This year’s show features a dramatic sunken home theatre, an indoor basketball court, a spectacular home library, stunning architecture including a 16-foot turret and cupola, trendy outdoor living spaces and themed bedrooms,” said Dan Dressman, executive director of the Home Builders Association of Greater Cincinnati. “This year’s Homerama will definitely be one to remember.”
Dressman says the main reason for the delay was that builders were forced to get off to a late start while waiting for bank financing. Builders of the six presold homes include Daniel Hicks Homes, Wieland Builders, W.V. deStefano Homes and Justin Doyle Homes, which are building three of the homes.
When ground was broken in November, Dressman called Carriage Hill “one of the nicest locations” that has ever hosted a Homearama. The 400-acre Liberty Township community features lakes, streams and woodlands.
Tickets can be purchased for $13 at the gate. Discount tickets for $11 can be purchased in advance at area Kroger stores or can be obtained with a valid AAA membership card at the gate.
The home show is open from 4 to 10 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from noon to 10 p.m., Friday through Sunday. Children 12-and-under and accompanied by an adult are free. Onsite parking is also free. Food and beverages can be purchased at the show.
