Louisville’s annual Homearama show is set to return once again this weekend, as Dove Point Estates and the Building Industry Association of Greater Louisville will be displaying a handful of premiere homes to the public.
Guests at Homearama will be able to take a look through six different homes on site, each with their own unique designs, styles and themes that range in size from 3,554 square feet to 5,448 square feet.
The homes have state-of-the-art technology and design aspects already built into them, allowing people to see homes that already come with “all the bells and whistles,” BIA Executive Director Juva Barber told Insider.
“It’s amazing to me how innovative our builders are, how different they each are, the design is completely different,” Barber said. “They are awe-inspiring.”
