56. Spring Home Show To Feature G’Town’s Neshoba Grove -

The Memphis Area Home Builders Association’s spring home show will be held at Neshoba Grove Subdivision in Germantown, the organization’s executive director, Don Glays, has confirmed.
Dubbed the “The Vesta Designer Showcase of Homes,” the month-long event is set for May 29-June 20. It will showcase five custom-built homes in a new infill development at the northeast corner of Cordova and Neshoba roads, just west of Germantown Road near the Germantown Performing Arts Centre.
Glays said this will be the first spring home show in the past few years, and its format will be slightly different than past events, such as the recent fall show that highlighted eco-friendly and more affordable homes at the Villages at White Oak in Arlington.
The homes at this year’s spring show will be larger and pricier, focusing on each of the five homes’ unique designs. Or, as Glays put it, the spring show will be about “lifestyle and living” rather than “energy and green living.”
“We try not to repeat ourselves if we can help it,” he said. “We’re doing that because what the group of builders has done is each has selected a top-notch, experienced, well-known architect, and are selecting great interior designers. The architects are working well together to keep, not a theme, per se, but make sure the houses complement each other.”
