What homes do you want to see in the 2015 Architects' Home Tour?
AIA Indy is taking applications through May 15 for homes to be featured on the fall tour

If you live in, have designed or have remodeled a home and want to show it off (and maybe even get a little business), consider submitting it for the 2015 Architects' Home Tour, scheduled for later September 2015. We're looking for homes designed by architects located within the Indy metro area that are:
* Historic homes that offer architectural significance
* New homes completed no later than June 30 of this year
* Renovated or remodeled homes

The popular AIA Indy Architects' Home Tour is a chance for architects to showcase their work, but also to help educate the public about the value of working with an architect, whether it's for a home design, business design or a renovation.

To suggest a house you think would make an ideal home for the tour, email
 or call 317.750.5373 no later than May 15!
