Reno Tour 2023

Reno Tour is back with a bang

By Anita Murray

Following three years of virtual-only tours due to the pandemic, the popular Reno Tour returns this year as an in-person event.

Now in its ninth year, this fantastic tour of Ottawa renovation projects is a must-see if you plan to renovate, with no better way to research several of Ottawa’s top renovators, inspect their work up close and ask them questions on site.

Presented by the Greater Ottawa Home Builders’ Association and RenoMark®, a national program that identifies professional contractors who have signed on to a code of conduct that protects the homeowner, there are seven homes to visit featuring the work of Amsted Design-Build, ARTium, GoodStory, Lagois Design-Build-Renovate, Laurysen Kitchens, RND Construction and Spectrum Kitchen & Bath Design.

Projects range from kitchen updates to whole-home renovations and sustainable building.

The tour is Sunday, Oct. 1 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. For tickets ($10 each), visit RenoTour2023 or purchase at either ReStore location (768 Belfast Rd. or 3 Iber Rd.). 

Can’t make the in-person event or want to revisit the projects? Each home (plus a bonus project by Spectrum) will be available for 3D virtual walk-throughs after the event at
