It’s not too late for the 2011 AIA Home Tours

It’s time for the annual home tours sponsored by AIA!  Yes, it’s happening this weekend, but if you haven’t gotten ticket you can go in person to the home tour headquarters open Saturday and Sunday at B&B Italia, 2211 Alameda Street. The headquarters will be open 9 am -4 pm both days, so swing down, pick up tickets and head out to view the homes which will be open from 10 am to 4 pm.

I’m looking forward to seeing the homes, especially the Old Bernal House by Feldman Architecture.  It’s one of the oldest homes in the neighborhood and many architect friends were excited years ago when the property was on the market as a fixer.

But, if this year is like previous tours, all the homes will be fascinating to view!
