Parade Preview – 16 Amazing Homes and an Indoor Shooting Range

You have the opportunity to see some very unique homes in the 2010 HBA Parade of Homes — there’s everything from homes built for active adults with an “empty nest”, to a sustainable modern farmhouse on acreage in Greene County. As well, the area’s first home certified to the ANSI National Green Building Standard will be on Parade this year. In addition to the homes on the Parade, long-time homebuilder A.G. Paul has created a “home” for his dream to bring the Ozarks a quality constructed indoor shooting range.
The Parade of Homes will run the weekends of June 18-20 and June 25-27. Homes are open from 1 pm to 6 pm on those days. Visit the diverse array of quality-built homes on the Parade route this year:
