In a recent email, Maxwell wrote: Miss our top House Tours? Front page move too quickly? During August we actually made some significant changes - cutting down our post frequency and leaving our two house tours a day up top for longer than any other post. We're going to keep playing around and you'll see a new front page layout at the end of the month. In the meantime, here are the top tours from our Midwest Division in July - with one hugely popular tour that came back from 2008. Enjoy!
