Construction supply chains leave Spring Home Parade smaller in OKC

1st Oklahoma Homes built this home at 2501 Summit Crossing Parkway, in Norman, and has it entered in the Parade of Homes this Friday-Sunday and again April 29-May 1.

So, you’re watching a parade, enjoying the floats — but some aren’t quite finished, just partly decorated, with their usually hidden frames and other infrastructure showing.

What would you think? Homebuilders hope you’ll think kindly, because it’s their upcoming 2022 Spring Parade of Homes that has some unfinished entries.

Supply chain issues and materials shortages, a problem throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, have hit the parade, which is this weekend and next.

The parade, organized by the Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association, will feature 56 new homes by 26 builders, open free to the public from noon to 6 p.m. this Friday to Sunday and again from April 29 to May 1. Parade guide books are available for free at OnCue Express.

An incomplete home might be just what some home shoppers are looking for, the builders group says online, turning supply lemons into home-site lemonade.
