    I always look forward to the Street of Dreams event. Every year the homes keep getting more innovative and beautiful yet for those of us below the price point, it’s still fun to look. There’s always an idea one can take home and blend into our own dwellings.

  32. Galen July 31, 2014 at 5:09 pm #

    My mother – in – law lives nearby this year’s Street of Dreams and I’ve been driving by there as the houses have been constructed. Now that they’re built, I’m not allowed to pass through! I’ve never been to see the houses features in the Street of Dreams so it would be great fun to see these houses inside and out now that my curiosity has been piqued.

  33. Cyndi July 31, 2014 at 5:28 pm #

    We are putting our house on the market to sell and what a great way to shop for a new home!!!!

  34. nancy July 31, 2014 at 5:40 pm #

    We’ve been in our first (fixer-upper) home for 10 years now…. still not fixed due to lack of inspiration or visible ideas from the homes around us. We live in East County… need I say more?

  35. Elena July 31, 2014 at 7:05 pm #

    Have never been to Street of Dreams, but as a young homeowner it wouldn’t hurt to get inspired and dream a bit!

  36. Ruth July 31, 2014 at 8:28 pm #

    I have never gone to the street of dreams–I figured it meant paying out dollars so I could drool over houses I could never afford. Now I am having fantasies of building my own retirement home and would like to see what the modern technologies are–and I will take pictures and post to my friends on facebook.

  37. Dominique July 31, 2014 at 9:42 pm #

    Saw some amazing houses last year, would be great to see some more this year at no cost :)

    I would love opportunity to live in House of Dreams. Please enter me into contest. When can move in?

    Hallo from Europe!

  70. Steven August 7, 2014 at 2:59 pm #

    My wife have been going to SOD since we moved to Portland in 2007. Throughout the year I often find myself referring to something cool seen at SOD like ‘seeing those people playing tennis just now reminds me of how cool it would be to have our own tennis court like the one we saw at SOD’. Which brings me to the double edged sword that is SOD; while it’s always a fun day to attend, coming back home is like getting the last row middle seat on an low fare budget airline. Our house, which we love, just seems so darn small and lame. So we’d love the opportunity to have you gift us this annual experience of ‘the grass is always greener (and bigger)’.

  71. Tim August 7, 2014 at 3:51 pm #

    Would like to check this out.

    Thanks for your consideration to be THE winner.

  72. Jenna Burke August 7, 2014 at 4:07 pm #

  78. Marco August 8, 2014 at 8:21 am #

    Wife and I have saved and are starting to look at the housing market. We are also considering having our own house built from the ground up. This would be a great way for us to see what is out there, and what is available locally for our dream house.

  79. Georgia August 8, 2014 at 9:35 am #

    A chance to dream big and hopefully pick up a few doable ideas too.

  80. Sarah Masoni August 8, 2014 at 1:26 pm #

    Dear Street of Dreams, I would love to visit you and lounge on your outdoor couches while sipping a nice glass of wine, tomorrow evening. My dream is to live on your street one day, please afford me this one simple pleasure, of free admission that I might live vicariously though your hallowed halls, and feel what I may one day own. Very Truly Yours.

  81. Kate August 8, 2014 at 2:43 pm #

    I always wanted to go and take a look at the street of dreams. But the ticket is too expensive, why can’t they just lower the price like $5. So more people can enjoy the nice houses
