Cumming is one of the region’s fastest-growing towns, with Iowa’s first agrihood being built over the next few years. Within 10 years, the city’s population is expected to quadruple, from 500 to 2,000. The annual Des Monies Home Show Expo, put on by the Home Builders Association of Greater Des Moines, is showcasing some of the new homes in the area over the next two weekends.
The homes are located in the Grand Western Crossing development, which is part of the Middlebrook agrihood. You can’t go wrong with any of the homes, but one of our favorites is Ground Breaker Homes’ build, which harks back to a classic farmhouse look with a covered front porch, white siding and a symmetrical face. Another standout is Jerry’s Homes’ creation, with a brick front and three separate garage stalls.
Tickets are $15. Hours for the final two weekends are 10 a.m.-9 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. on Sundays. You can also purchase two-hour private tours at various times on July 15 and 22 for $50. Find ticket information here.
