If you're anything like the rest of the planet and can't get enough of the DIY Network, HGTV and all the home remodeling shows on television (yes, even Extreme Makeover: Home Edition), stop by this year's White Rock Home Tour from 1 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday to see some amazing spaces up close and personal. The tour is a docent-guided expedition to five radical residences: four mid-century modern houses and one "green" home. Design junkies will enjoy chatting with the homes' architects and landscapers in the tour's meet-and-greet sessions. Don't miss this one-of-a-kind chance to peek inside a few beautiful abodes and get the inside scoop on their design inspiration. It's also a great opportunity to grab ideas for your next renovation, or, if you're like the rest of us--just pretend you'll one day get the chance to live inside such a swell dwelling. Tickets are $10 in advance through Sunday at White Rock Coffee, the Green Spot, or select Tom Thumb stores (or $15 at the door). Visit hexterpta.org/hometour.
