The semi-annual Albuquerque Parade of Homes is a rite of spring, and the Spring 2019 issue of Su Casa Northern New Mexico has all the information about each of the 25 homes—including directions and maps—within its pages. We’ll also take you on tours (virtually!) of two feature homes, the architect-designed green residence that’s on the cover, and an aerie loft in Uptown Albuquerque filled with New Mexican art. Don’t miss our annual feature on beautiful bathrooms, and see what it takes to build a certifiably green and sustainable home these days. Plus there’s a roundup of cool coffee tables and coffee table books, a visit to Mata G, Albuquerque’s newest vegetarian takeout restaurant, and of course features from our regular columnists, all of whom are as excited as we are that spring has arrived!

When this year’s long cold winter drew to a close, I felt ever so grateful for the projects I did around my home last fall. While the skiing was great all over Northern New Mexico for many folks, I have a feeling we spent considerably more time in our homes avoiding a relatively severe winter. With spring finally here, it’s time to gear up for the warmer months ahead and prepare our homes for other seasonal activities.

A great place to start is by taking advantage of the Home Builders Association of Central New Mexico’s annual Spring Parade of Homes coming up in late April. All the details, maps, and descriptions of the homes are right here in this issue of Su Casa Northern New Mexico, so be sure to bring your copy with you as you visit each home.
