Dreaming about a new home is exciting! As is the design process and watching your dreams turn into reality.

Many decisions are made along the way about material types, colors and budgets. A target date is set for you to move into your new home and everyone involved works diligently to meet that date – but sometimes unforeseeable snags pop up along the way. Decisions can become delayed, materials occasionally can become discontinued, or sometimes a selection needs to be re-thought or just flat out changed.

No need to panic if this happens during the construction process, provided there is a reasonable amount of time and the change can be made at the current stage of construction. Builders now have a tool to offer to buyers so they can visualize changes to their new homes – before and after construction begins.

Look for the Personal Designer Home Visualizer tool and try it out – change vinyl to ceramic tile, carpet to wood, or simply try every paint color in the rainbow. Being able to visualize your thoughts on material and color will streamline your selection process, and should you need to make a change during construction, enable you to make a quick decision and keep the building process on track.

This is the last weekend of the 65th Fall Parade of Homes! When you visit, look for entries #204 and #206 on the same street – and best yet, all three of these homes have Design-On-The-Spot Kiosks!

Want to try your eye for design and create a few more personalized versions?

Search Personal Designers in the new home filters at and design online. Or, search Design-On-The-Spot kiosks for select model homes. Re-design right from actual Parade of Homes models while visiting (Search using the iPad Kiosk filter from the new home search page). Ask your salesperson to send you your own version to design at home and start planning that new home today. Before you know it, you’ll be at the closing table and ready to move in.
