The Rapid City Home Show Has Been Postponed

As excited as we’ve been to gear up for the Rapid City Home Show, hosted by the Black Hills Home Builder’s Association, we now must announce that the event has been temporarily postponed.

Due to concerns of exposure to the COVID-19 virus, and the recommendation to allow for social distancing and closure of big events, the Home Show will be rescheduled for July 10-12, 2020.

We are praying for everyone’s continued health and wellbeing in the midst of this trying and uncertain time.

Though the Home Show has been postponed, there are still plenty of things we can do to prepare, plan, and dream until then.

While this is definitely a serious time, here are some more light-hearted ways to pass the time and plan your dreams in the midst of time at home in quarantine:

Neighborhood Shopping: So many folks who head to the Home Show are looking to dream big and plan ahead for their dream home in retirement, their ideal location for a new home, or just taste a bit of their goals even if they can’t yet obtain them. The gift of the Home Show is it can give you a glimpse into which neighborhoods in town are coming online, where the type of home you dream of is being built, or where you could jump in one day to build your own home.

At Dream Design, we have three developments to help aspiring home owners find the right spot:

1. Shepherd Hills – our Shepherd Hills development is drawing a lot of excitement and is finally getting closer to allowing for new homes to come in. These lots will be sold outright in the $45,000 range for homes starting at $200,000. Shepherd Hills will be a large residential haven – with over 1,500 housing units set in these 700+ acres! It is also slated to be a new home for Rapid City Area Schools. Shepherd Hills will also serve as a huge connector between major roads in East Rapid City with build out of Anamosa Street, Valley Drive from Highway 44, and East Philadelphia from the former Kmart complex on Cambell Street.

2. Orchard Meadows – our Orchard Meadows development – a favorite for all age groups – offers lots of green space, walking trails surrounding the neighborhood, nearby amenities, and easy transit to all your Rapid City favorites via Elk Vale and Highway 44. Lots in Orchard Meadows start at $49,900 with homes in the upper $200,000s to mid-range $300,000s. Many homes in Orchard Meadows are ranch style homes with zero entry for easy accessibility.

3. Scotland Hills – our newest residential development will really open the door to those dream homes – with large, luxury lots tucked away from the hub and commotion, yet right in town to allow for easy access to everything you need. These gorgeous lots are 0.66 acres to over 4 acres and offer canyon and City views. Grading work has just begun on this pristine project and lots should be ready for building mid-summer!

Floorplan Layout: another fun option to get your creative juices flowing is to play with floorplan layouts – to either rework and restyle your existing home or to plan out how all of your favorite furniture would fit into a new home. Apartment Therapy offers a round up of some free to low cost apps that allow you to either snap a picture of your current room or upload a floorplan from your dream home to play around and see where all of your pieces will fit.

The Dream Design team has a new floor plan available for our Orchard Meadows development – a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath ranch style home with zero entry and 1,550 sqft to help you get started. Check out the “Willow Creek” and start playing!

Interior Design: Sometimes all we really need is a little bit of an internal revamp on our place to help us jump into a new season or freshen things up. DDI Residential partner Knecht Home Center has a TON of great options to help you dream and scheme. Take a look at their outdoor living section to revamp the patio, browse through their lighting options to get a bold, statement piece for the dining room, or play with their Paint Studio to test out new colors and styles for the living room of your current home.

It’d certainly be a lot more fun to have these conversations and test sample styles live with Home Show vendors and all the industry’s bests, but we will get another chance to gather before you know it in July.

If you haven’t already, jump onto our prize list to be registered to win a gift card to one of three DDI Partners: $1000 to Knechts, $100 to the Gyro Hub, or $100 to La Vida Mexican Restaurant. We’ll pick a winner Sunday afternoon at the Home Show the 12th of July.

Wherever these next few weeks take you, we wish you the very best in health and peace for you and your loved ones and truly hope you can have some moments of rest, peace, and a little extra time to plan for your dreams.
