Medley winners line up for awards
July 2, 2005

“With the success of this year’s spring medley, we certainly will have one again in 2006,” said Rita Unzner, administrator of the McHenry County Home Builders Association.

The MCHBA annually sponsors a new home show in the spring. This year it was the first three weeks of May, and there were 41 homes on the tour, which were visited by thousands of people, Unzner said.

Before the spring 2006 show, though, the MCHBA will host a holiday tour of homes in late November.

This will be the third year for this late season show. The new models entered in the fall show are fewer in number, but they are decorated to the hilt for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

“That has been a big show for us too, ever since its inception,” Unzner said. “Of course our big one is in the spring.”

There are more than 150 members in the MCHBA, which is part of the Home Builders Association of Greater Chicago.

During this year’s medley, a panel of judges toured the homes and scored them on various architectural and marketing criteria.
