The Spokane Home Builders Association's sixth annual Fall Festival of home is slated over the next two three-day weekends.
The free, scattered-site event will include homes built this year in the Spokane area using the latest in construction techniques and styles, says Katherine Morgan, the SHBA's marketing and events director.
This year, the show will include 41 homes constructed by 24 Spokane-area builders. The homes will be open to the public during show hours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sept. 24-26 and Oct. 2-4.
Homes are included in a variety of market segments to appeal to entry-level, move-up, empty-nester, and luxury homebuyers, Morgan says. Entries range from a $160,000 townhouse with 1,800 square feet of floor space in the Terra Vista development in Cheney to an $850,000 waterfront home with 3,600 square feet of floor space in the Coyote Rock development along the Spokane River in Spokane Valley.
"The builders did a good job of being creative and offering competitive value for those who want to be homebuyers," Morgan says.
The festival also will showcase certified Built Green homes, which meet conservation and sustainability standards developed and adopted by the SHBA, Avista Corp., the Washington state Department of Ecology, and other public and private entities, she says.
Proceeds from the sale of one home in the show will go to the Children's Miracle Network of the Inland Northwest, which funds children's programs at 10 hospitals. That home is in the Eagle Ridge development in southwest Spokane and has 3,100 square feet of floor space. It was built by Morse Western Homes LLC, of Liberty Lake, with assistance from SHBA members, and is priced at $375,000, Morgan says.
People interested in visiting any of the homes can pick up profiles and tour maps at host-site developments, which include The River District, in Liberty Lake; Pillar Rock, on the West Plains; Five Mile Heights, on the North Side; Eagle Ridge; and Coyote Rock.
The SHBA is a building-industry trade group with members in seven Eastern Washington counties.
