Parade of Homes winners named

-A A +A

Of the nine showcase houses in this year’s Parade of Homes, the People’s Choice overall winner was built by The Home Place of KY.

Guests who paid to tour the houses over the two weekends determined the honor. Blake Duggins and Charles Ferguson accepted on behalf of The Home Place.

The house on Reserve Court in the Thousand Oaks development in Elizabethtown was one of two custom-built houses the company entered in the Parade, which is staged annually by the Lincoln Trail Home Builders Association.

A news release from the association said this year’s entries “truly reflect the builder’s ability to meet the needs and individual tastes of each homeowner.”

Judges from the building industry were brought in from around the area to determine other winners.
