This winter is the time to plan your next home project—anything from simply repainting your dining room to finally updating your kitchen or adding much-needed cabinet storage in your bathroom. Well, heat up some cocoa and get snug and cozy in a flannel blanket, because you don’t have to leave your couch to view and compare contractors’ craftsmanship and building materials from Spahn & Rose. Just click into our Virtual Home Showcase.
Over the past three years, Spahn & Rose has collected photos and videos of dozens of home builds and renovations across Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin. Along with accessing the Virtual Home Showcase from 2022, you can click into the 2021 and 2020 homes. By “walking through” these homes virtually, you can see what specific kinds of Spahn & Rose building materials look like and view the work of contractors and builders in your area.
For example, you can take a 3D tour of this stunning home in DeForest, Wisconsin. You’ll see Shiloh Cabinetry, Silestone Quartz countertops, Carstin-cultured marble and Wolf bath cabinetry. The advanced 3D technology in the Virtual Home Showcase enables you to spend time looking at these homes at your own pace, changing the view to just about any angle. You can also access information about any materials used and learn more about contractors, builders and developers in your area.
“The Virtual Home Showcase is more than photos, more than video,” says Jacque Arensdorf, Spahn & Rose’s Director of Marketing. “You click along at your own pace, zoom in wherever you like to get ideas for projects and learn how to incorporate building materials in your next build or renovation.”
You can access the virtual tours through your standard browser; there’s no need to download an app or other software. The Spahn & Rose Virtual Home Showcase is also handy for seeing how materials such as roofing look when installed. For example, this beautiful home in Decorah, Iowa, shows how GAF shingles with copper trim look on a complicated multistory roof.
