2nd Annual Renovators’ Home Tour Offers Design Ideas

Information provided by Lancaster Lebanon Habitat for Humanity

The 2nd annual Renovators’ Home Tour, presented by PNC Bank and benefiting Lancaster Lebanon Habitat for Humanity, will showcase clever use of space and innovative design ideas through renovations in Manheim Township and Lancaster homes on Sunday, October 1, 2017 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Ticket holders will have the opportunity to explore 18 to 20 homes that feature renovations ranging from smart small-space solutions to entire home rehabs. In addition, homeowners will be on hand to personally talk with guests about the decision-making process behind their renovations.

While the work of professional local contractors is a prominent feature of the Tour, this year’s event also highlights the DIY projects, in varying degrees of difficulty, that homeowners have executed themselves. This includes unique spacing-saving ideas, such as a “cloffice” (an office within a closet) and an outdoor shed that was retro-fitted to become a cozy study space called a “she shed.” Many of these DIY projects were built with materials from the Lancaster Habitat ReStore, which supports Habitat’s home-building activities.

The Tour will take place in Manheim Township’s Grandview Heights and Country Club Estates neighborhoods, along with Lancaster’s downtown and west side areas. Tickets and event information are available online at renovatorshometour.com, as well as David Lyall Home & Design and Penn Stone, both located in Lancaster. Tickets are $40 each through September 24, and then are $45 until the day of the event. Early purchase is recommended.
