Wet weather delays Homearama

Published 12:08 am Saturday, August 18, 2018

Wet weather throughout this summer has pushed the annual Homearama show back by a week.

“Due to the unusually wet weather we’ve been having this summer, construction on the Homearama homes has been delayed,” said Scott M. Gandy, president of the Tidewater Builders Association.

The show now will run from Oct. 19 through Nov. 4 at the Creeks of Nansemond located in the community of Nansemond River Estates, Suffolk.

Homearama is scheduled from noon to 7 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and from noon to 6 p.m. the first two Sundays. The event will close at 5 p.m., with ticket sales ending at 4 p.m., on Sunday, Nov. 4, when Daylight Saving Time ends.

TBA’s showcase of single-site, custom-built, fully landscaped homes will feature seven homes built by six builders: BlackTip Associates, Breland Builders, Brooks Enterprises, Eagle Construction of VA LLC, East Coast Development and Ore Builders. Homearama Chair Les Ore is building two homes.

The Creeks of Nansemond provides a wide range of home price points and features the bonus of waterfront as well as interior lots. Pricing starts at $450,000 for homes built on the interior lots. For those homes constructed on waterfront lots, the prices start at $600,000.

Theme weekends are:

  • Oct 19-21: Military & First Responders
  • Oct. 26-28: Bluegrass & Brews
  • Nov. 2-4: Family Fun Days

A one-day pass is $10, and children 12 and younger are free. Discount coupons will be available on the show website.
