As you tour the unique and spectacular homes featured in this year’s Parade, we hope you will appreciate the contributions made by all the men and women who have created the homes in this year’s Haciendas – A Parade of Homes. It is not only the builder and architect who make it happen, but also the stone mason, electrician, landscape artist, finance manager, and more! Gross receipts from the home building industry help fund parks, roads, highways water and sewer projects (the infrastructure of communities). The millions of dollars paid in wages and benefits are spent on goods and services in the local economy. Ticket sales from the Haciendas – A Parade of Homes, and the many generous donations of the Association and its members, have contributed thousands of dollars to local charitable organizations: Habitat for Humanity, High School Athletic Teams, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Girls Inc., the Boys and Girls Club, United Way, Agua Fria Children’s Zone, Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society, and others.
The Santa Fe Area Home Builders Association is proud to host “Haciendas – A Parade of Homes” this August. Professionals in design and construction, green building and architecture, and visitors from around the world look forward to attending “Haciendas – A Parade of Homes” to experience “Santa Fe Style” and to dream of capturing that cutting edge, creative, endemic design and use of materials that has made Santa Fe famous.
