This coming Sunday in Kansas City you will have the ability to tour four homes that were all designed by the architects who live in them. Two of the homes are new and two are complete rehabs of houses built in the late 1800s. Click through the jump for more information on the tour and sneak a peek at their spaces...
If you can get past the voice in the presentation, here's a preview Slideshow of the homes on display.
Many homeowners have a tendency to treat building their own house like soup. Not in the sense that it's easy to do by any means, but with the mindset that they tend to throw all their design ideas into one pot. Their house doesn't end up reflecting a complete design story and can feel jumbled. This isn't the case with these 4 architect homes; who all had a clear and concise vision for their dwellings.
You can read a bit more about the event from this article written in the Kansas City Star this past Sunday. this article from the Kansas City Star
