The Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City's Artisan Home Tour will continue for its third weekend on Friday through Sunday, Aug. 28 to 30.

The tour, originally scheduled for earlier this summer in June, was postponed in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Presented by Ferguson Enterprises, this tour features eight homes built by some of Kansas City’s custom home builders.

The Northland representative on the tour is a house described as a "modern European country home" by Freeman Custom Homes’ at 8609 N.E. Shoal Creek Parkway, Kansas City. The residence features a private courtyard in the center of the house, a French cafe-style bar, outdoor movie wall and a hidden stairway.

The Artisan Home Tour of Greater Kansas City is a ticketed event designed to benefit the work of JDRF, formerly known as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. JDRF is a nonprofit organization that funds Type 1 diabetes research. 

Tickets are available for all seven homes or one home. Tickets are available online at www.artisanhometourkc.org, via the mobile app, at area Hy-Vee stores or at any of the artisan homes once the tour begins.

There are safety guidelines in place for the tour including: masks being required; physical distancing while touring required; restrictions on touching surfaces and handles in houses and limits on time allowed in homes. Attendees are also encouraged to bring and use hand sanitizer.
