The Carlisle Classic Homes retreat that’s featured here is just one of eight on November’s first-ever virtual Tour of Homes, presented by Sangster Motors and Building North Central Washington.

Dealing with COVID-19 restraints this year meant exceptional changes to the annual tour.

Interim BNCW CEO Amy Gustin coordinated the overall concept and the filming and marketing of the video tour. She was aided by new membership coordinator (a veteran of the local building scene) Rachel Beardslee and by executive assistant Kim Fenner, who between them secured builders and sponsors, scheduled personnel, created the tour website, managed ad sales and social media and worked closely with designers and printers.

This compact Real Homes rambler (above two photos) in a new Malaga neighborhood features light, bright easy care finishes.

This year there’s no driving, no getting lost, no parking way down the hill, no crowds or little blue paper shoe covers — you’ll be able to visually walk through each home without interruption. You can comment and critique at will with the freedom of your phone or favorite computer screen.

Here’s how to take the 2020 Virtual Tour: 

• Any time between Monday, Nov. 9, and Sunday, Nov. 15, log in to www.buildingncw.org/Tour2020 to view this year’s homes.

• You’ll see each house in “House Hunters” style format, a room-by-room walkabout with Eric Granstrom of NCW Life and the builder. Videography is by NCWLife. 

• When you’ve viewed all the homes, as in past years you’ll have an opportunity to vote for your favorites in different categories.

• On the same site you can also see still photographs of the homes taken by Travis Knoop, floor plans, and biographies and contact information for both the builders and their sponsors.

Six local builders and their related sponsors are offering recent projects for your perusal:

 • Carlisle Classic Homes, a tri-level family vacation home in Leavenworth (sponsored by Berggren Pool and Spa)

 • Lenssen Homes, a Northwest Modern Mountain home at Ravenwing Ranch south of Malaga (sponsored by Wenatchee Valley Glass)

 • Real Homes, two ramblers, both in Malaga (sponsored by Valencia Fencing and by Marson and Marson)

 • Roberts Construction, a modern rambler in East Wenatchee (sponsored by Artisan Flooring)

 • Sadler Construction, a Northwest Modern Mountain home in the Entiat Valley (sponsored by Laura Mounter Real Estate) and a Northwest Craftsman at Crescent Bar (sponsored by Native Network)

 • G.L. White Construction, a tri-level lake house on the south shore of Lake Chelan (sponsored by North Meridian Title)
