Tour of Remodeled Homes Returns

Lexington’s Tour of Remodeled Homes is scheduled for October 16 and 17, 2021, noon to 5 pm. Check in for updates via the builders’ Facebook pages for in-person/virtual tour options. Below is a sampling of highlights planned for this year’s 2021 tour.

2019 Tour of Remodeled Homes

Anderson and Rogers will be showcasing a property in one of Lexington’s favorite historic neighborhoods, on Barrow Road.

Atchison Construction will also highlight the beauty of 40502 with a property on Mooreland Drive.

BACK Construction will be featuring a stunner on Winding Wood Place. Earlier this year, BACK received awards for “Best of Houzz Design” and “Best of Houzz Service” for 2021. They described it as “a huge honor considering just 3% of the 2.5 million home design and remodeling professionals on Houzz receive a Best of Houzz award each year.”

Conrad Construction will be featuring a Nicholasville Home this year on Native Trace in one of Jessamine County’s most popular neighborhoods, Legacy Estates.

Griggs Homes also has a Nicholasville reno to show off, on West Brannon.

Keitz Construction is featuring two remodels on this year’s tour, one on Watertrace Drive and one on Wishbone Circle. Keitz Construction recently received two Home Builders Association of Kentucky (HBAK) Design and Remodeling Awards.

Pickett will be featuring their work in the Chinoe neighborhood.

Vimont will be highlighting an amazing transformation at Siesta Cove in the beautiful Island neighborhood.


Hazardous Waste Disposal 

Products that contain corrosive, toxic or flammable ingredients are household hazardous wastes (HHW). These materials include common household items such as paints, cleaners, oils, batteries and pesticides. Improper disposal can pollute air, water or soil and pose a threat to human health.

The city offers a household hazardous waste collection. During these events, Fayette County residents can drop off the hazardous materials that have accumulated in their homes. The city will properly dispose of them, free of charge.  

The next Household Hazardous Waste event is Saturday, October 23, between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m. at 1631 Old Frankfort Pike (enter via Jimmie Campbell Dr.)

If you want to speed up your wait time, complete the event survey in advance at Load materials in the trunk of your vehicle for easy removal by on-site staff and please stay in your car at all times.

Common items to hold for a HHW event:

  • Acids
  • Acetone
  • Brake fluid
  • Calcium chloride
  • Fertilizer that contains herbicides
  • Fungicides
  • Hydraulic fluid
  • Lacquer
  • Mercury
  • Paint and polyurethane
  • Paint thinner
  • Pesticides
  • Transmission fluid



Leaf Collection time is coming. Lexington offers residents three ways to dispose of leaves. Use your gray “Lenny” yard cart. Lennys are picked up on the same days as your Herbies (green carts) and Rosie Recyclers (blue carts). You may also use paper yard waste bags. And don’t forget, the city’s leaf vacuum service begins Monday November 8.
