home tour 2014Evolving roof lines – flat, A-frame, rounded, and shed among them – is the theme for this year’s popular annual Methow Valley Tour of Homes.

The Tour provides local residents and visitors with an opportunity to experience an interesting collection of Methow homes.

For those contemplating building or remodeling a home in the Methow Valley, the tour gives you the chance to view interior and exterior design possibilities, and to see the work of various architects, builders, and artisans, several of whom will be available to answer questions. For locals, the Tour offers access to some rare distinctive dwellings hidden in the woods, alongside ski trails, or at the end of long, meandering driveways.

The Tour typically includes six or more homes featuring a variety of architectural styles, building materials, sizes and values. This year, the Tour will be within a 15 mile radius to bicyclists to take the tour. Tickets and maps will be for sale at Confluence Gallery, the Mazama Store, and Methow Cycle and Sports. Bike rentals will also be available at Methow Cycle and Sports.

TICKETS: $25 each or $20 if you have a carpool of 4 or more, CONTACT: 509.997.2787 or

From Executive Director Nicole Ringgold: “Given that friends in our valley have lost their homes in the tragic fires of the past month, the Confluence Board and Tour Committee considered canceling the 2014 home tour. After much discussion we decided to go ahead with the tour and donate 25% of the ticket sales to The Community Foundation of North Central Washington Fire Relief Fund. This fund provides support for those who have lost their homes and possessions.  It is our hope that the Home Tour will bring visitors to our valley to experience the best in local housing home construction while at the same time providing support for those who no longer have homes to return to.
