Get a glimpse of luxurious living at the Parade of Homes 

by Anita Napier

If you are always freezing in your home, while your family is complaining it’s too hot, you’ll want to see some of the technology offered in this year’s Parade of Homes. In fact, at least one home has multiple thermostats throughout that help regulate temperature and humidity for the entire house, allowing different rooms to have different temperatures! And that’s just one of the exciting features showcased this year.

We’ve got everything from repurposed clapboard siding, columns from a tobacco warehouse, stone fireplaces, cedar creek siding, massive custom-built kitchens and much more. Our custom homes offer a glimpse of luxurious living, but even our spec homes have been staged with furniture or other design accessories to provide fresh ideas!

This year’s event features homes ranging in size to just over 10,000 sq. ft. We have new custom homes built by Registered Builders in conjunction with the family who will live there, as well as professional designers. And we have spec homes that will be for sale to the public.

The Parade of Homes is a self-guided tour that gives you a chance to visit these homes at your leisure and walk away with some great ideas. Or, if you plan on building, you’ll have a chance to meet a multitude of Registered Builders to start you on your search for that perfect match to build your dream home. In fact, all homes in the Parade are built by general contractors who have earned Registered Builder designation by meeting a stringent set of criteria including building education and experience. And many of our Associate members were part of the building team as well. Associates are members such as landscapers, roofers, bankers, painters, and many more.

It is so important to find the right Registered Builder. Home building is a lengthy process. You need to make sure your personalities mesh so you can work comfortably together through the process. And it’s important to check out their professional credentials to help ensure a quality product. By touring these homes, you can see firsthand superior craftsmanship and beautiful design.

Presented by the Builders Association of South Central Kentucky and sponsored by Farmers National Bank, Bowling Green Home Furnishings and WBKO, this is an opportunity to see new colors, building products, home fashions, and much more. This year sees the return of the $5,000 Dream Room Furniture Giveaway from Bowling Green Home Furnishings. Plus, there’s a special contest from Farmers National Bank where one lucky winner will receive a $500 gift card to Ace Hardware. Hint…both contests involve selfies. Complete contest details and requirements will be released closer to the event.

Tickets, which are only $10, are available for purchase at every home on the tour during the Parade, September 13-16, and are good for all four days and entrance into all homes on the tour. Tickets can also be purchased in advance at the Builders Association office at 859 Lovers Lane. Children under 12 get in free. Each ticket holder will receive a Parade Magazine that includes information on the Registered Builder, the home, and decorator information that is known at the time of printing. And, we are proud to say that each year, a portion of the proceeds are donated to a non-profit community organization. South Warren High School FFA will be the recipient of this year’s donation.

Contact the Builders Association of South Central Kentucky at 270-781-3375 to find a Registered Builder with the experience, qualifications and knowledge to do the job right – the first time. Or, visit our website at and search for Registered Builders or other providers of products and services for that special project. You can also visit us on facebook at Builders Association of South Central Kentucky where we will feature info about the homes from now until the event.
