Highlights from the 2018 Clark County Parade of Homes

The event, sponsored by Northwest Natural, includes 10 homes this year, each worth over a million dollars

CAMAS — The 2018 version of the Northwest Natural Clark County Parade of Homes is underway this week in Camas at a new development near the Camas Meadows Golf Club.

This year’s show sets a new standard for the annual showcase home show, with 10 houses all valued at over a million dollars.

The styles range from modern to vintage, and other designs that harken to the area’s natural roots. Homes like The Maker by Soaring Eagle Homes strive to evoke the history of the Camas area, with callbacks to warehouses and a downtown loft feel. The Timberline by Doriot Construction features a towering ceiling above the living room, with a massive wagon wheel-style chandelier and a rock fireplace as the centerpiece.

Homes like The Arcadia and The Madison feature more of an updated farmhouse feel, with white colors, columns, double-hung windows and shiplap. The Black Pearl evokes styles from the West Indies, with huge covered outdoor spaces and numerous cultural influences throughout. Eagle Peak attempts to pay homage to the Cascade Mountain Range, with soaring rooflines and a wide footprint.

Most of the homes line the Camas Meadows Golf Club, with Vista on the Green snuggling up close enough to watch golfers in action during the day. The home features outdoor landscaping inspired by the Pacific Northwest.

The 2018 Northwest Natural Clark County Parade of Homes runs through Sept. 23, closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. Be sure to check ClarkCountyParadeOfHomes.com for information on live music events, and special family discount days. You can save $2 off the regular $12 cost of admission by buying tickets online.
