RECAP: Raleigh & Wake Counties Triangle Parade of Homes 2022

Every year, the team at Homes By Dickerson looks forward to showcasing our newest designs at the Triangle Parade of Homes. From the moment each parade home is conceptualized to the very last hour before judging, our team is working around the clock to make sure these homes are absolutely perfect. It’s not only a chance for us to showcase our quality craftsmanship and design to more people but for us to step out of the box and let these homes be an example of how we design all of our homes.

We’re incredibly proud of the homes we built for this parade that include bold design choices and selections that pulled together our “Homes With Character” theme. We’re happy to share that our parade home entries are award winners, yet again. They are truly a reflection of the months of planning, hard work, and dedication our team gave to bring these homes to life. If you missed this year’s event or have never heard of the Parade of Homes, here is some info and our homes that stole the show!

What is the Triangle Parade of Homes?

The Triangle Parade of Homes occurs annually around the month of October in Raleigh and Wake Counties. This year, homes were available to tour across the first three weekends of October: 1st-2nd, 7th-9th, and 14th-16th. It’s one of the largest Parade of Homes in the country bringing people from all around to view masterfully built and designed homes up close and personal. The Triangle Parade of Homes 2022 was the 57th year of this event!

The event is absolutely free to the public, so anyone can come to enjoy a closer look at some of the most incredible homes across Raleigh and Durham. Touring the parade homes is always an enjoyable experience for visitors. Many come to discover their next floor plan and home design, see the latest home design trends and technology, or find inspiration in the selected finishes and decor. Others are coming to potentially shop for their next home. (Yes, they are for sale!). Overall, it’s a great opportunity to explore the newest homes and communities throughout the Triangle.

Knowing this would be someone’s forever home, the team at Homes By Dickerson took on the responsibility of making sure every one of our homes was specially crafted and that there was something unique about that home that would fit their life. We always look forward to getting feedback from returning parade visitors and clients in the community. They truly inspire our best ideas by affirming what we’ve done correctly or by making suggestions to make it better.

It’s an amazing thing to be able to show something a little different from the norm and have people comment on how cool the home turned out and how it took them on a journey. That’s what is really special about this event — and The Parade of Homes 2022 was no different! The whole team made sure every little detail was right and that each home was relaxing and really felt like a place you could call home. We also wanted them to stand out from the competition and excite visitors with something a little different from the ordinary modern or contemporary home style.
