Every year my wife and I enjoy going to the Tour of Homes here in Salem for a couple of reasons.
First, it's fun to see cool features in expensive homes that our 1970's era home lacks, like walk-in closets. Second, we like to criticize design choices that strike us as abhorrent, hopefully out of the earshot of the builder.
Here's photos I took last Saturday at the 2019 Tour of Homes kickoff weekend. I've added some commentary that ranges from complimentary to snarky. We only went to four of the 21 homes.
The Tour continues through June 23rd: weekends noon to 6 pm, weekdays 6 pm to 9 pm.
