All 19 parade homes were designed and built by the association’s Certified Professional Home Builders (CPHB). According to Burgess, the event highlights the skills, expertise and professionalism that CPHB members bring to the industry.

“To achieve certification, these builders completed a series of training modules covering topics ranging from business and managerial skills to safety courses. You must also maintain a third party warranty from an approved provider. Homebuyers can rest assured that their investment is protected and they are getting the highest quality.”

This year’s parade includes two Net Zero demonstration houses in Evergreen and Aspen Ridge.

“A net-zero home produces as much clean energy as it uses. A net-zero home not only offers better energy efficiency, but also excels in sustainability and comfort,” says Burgess.

North Ridge Development Corporation will showcase its net-zero bungalow townhouse project, The Pines, which has received national recognition with the Canadian Home Builders’ Association’s Housing Excellence Awards. The home features an inviting open concept with 2.70m ceilings, a well-appointed owner’s suite and a generous family room, whilst net-metering solar panels generate enough energy to power the home.

In the energy efficiency test, the Pines townhouse scored 100 percent better than a standard code-built home, thanks to better insulation, waste water heat recovery and an air source heat pump for heating and cooling. The parade house is located at 88-103 Pohorecky Cres. in the evergreen.

Selkirk Developments presents a 2,471 sq. ft. two-story net-zero single-family home outfitted with must-see luxury amenities including a butler’s pantry, tiled spa room and gypsum Venetian fireplace. The house offers the ultimate in energy efficiency due to its super-insulated building envelope, energy and waste water heat recovery systems, air source heat pumps and a 12.90 kW solar array. The Selkirk Net Zero Parade home is located at 108 Forsey Ave. at Aspen Ridge.

Net Zero represents the future of the residential construction industry in Canada. By 2030, new homes built in Canada must be “net-zero capable.”

“With these regulations coming into force by 2030, it is important that people learn about net zero and how it leads to exceptional energy efficiency, performance and sustainability. It’s an important part of us as an association to help our builders and the public understand and make changes to these regulations,” says Burgess.

For many, the SRHBA Parade of Homes is an opportunity to learn about the latest design and home trends.

“It’s a great way for people to see what options are available when looking to buy a new home in Saskatoon and to see the latest trends in home design and decor,” says Burgess.

Even if you’re not looking for a new home, the beautifully staged stately homes are sure to inspire ideas for renovating and upgrading your existing home, she notes.

In addition to the fun of the SRHBA Parade of Homes, there is an opportunity to win great prizes. Viewers are invited to fill out an online survey when they visit each show house. By completing this online survey, people will be entered into a sweepstakes for $1,000 in prizes each week.

Parade houses are open Tuesday through Thursday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m
