RAP 39th Annual Spring Home Tour

UPDATE (4/29): The 2013 Spring Tour of Homes has come to an end. Don’t miss our recap of the tour along with all of our pictures in our most recent blog post HERE.

We’re very excited for the 39th Annual Spring Home Tour hosted by the Riverside Avondale Preservation Society. As we toured last year, it added to the anticipation of closing on our own home. Last April marked the 8th month in our home buying process and we were itching to seal the deal. This tour is a great way to get decorating ideas, visit historical homes, learn about restoration and preservation… all while meeting new people (or even your neighbors)!

We’ve run by this house on St. Johns Avenue (which sold for a cool $855,000 in 2011) and can’t wait to see what has been done with the inside.
