The Bitterroot Tour of Homes is in full swing with six homes opening their doors to the public.

The Bitterroot Building Industry Association has been doing this for 18 years to show off the great craftsmanship of local building contractors and subcontractors.

I go on the tour every year to see the imagination of homeowners, and what they consider important aspects of their daily lives that need to be enhanced by a better house.

On this tour, you'll see some magnificent homes hidden away on either side of the valley. You'll see how a major fire was turned into a great opportunity for another homeowner. And into the mix you see things like spiral staircases, great kitchen layouts, his and hers walk-in closets and more.

Tickets are available at each home on the tour for $10. When you see a Tour of Homes sign along the road, follow it to the next one and the next one and the'll soon be there.
