If you are thinking about renovating your home, want to buy a new home or just want to see examples of modern architecture, then you might be interested in taking the first Toronto Modern Home Tour on Saturday, June 8, 2013. Several homes in Toronto that have been designed by local architects will be open to tour from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tickets are $30 and a portion of the proceeds will benefit Red Door Family Shelter. (See our contest below to win two tickets to the tour.)
The tour is self-guided so you can either drive or take the TTC to each of the locations. Homes are still being added to the tour.
