I have a confession. I am a 'This Old House' binge watcher. I own a home in Rock Island that will turn 100 years old next summer and I can't get enough of watching the PBS DIY show. Now, if only I could find the time to actually perform any of the renovations that I see in the programs.

Five homes that have undergone amazing restorations will be available for the public to tour this coming weekend. The annual Gold Coast-Hamburg Historic District Home Tour takes place this Saturday and Sunday from Noon-4pm.

Details on some of the homes you can tour, and more about the Gold Coast-Hamburg Historic District can be found here.

Maybe I'll see you there this weekend touring these great historic homes for some restoration ideas, or inspiration.
