CiTiRAMA® 2019 will feature the first Demonstration Home


What’s the purpose of the HBA’s Demonstration Home?

The Demonstration Home serves three purposes: 1) as a vehicle for consumers to learn about the home-building process; 2) as an opportunity for HBA members to showcase their products and services (e.g., foundation waterproofing, energy-efficient home features); 3) as an onsite training experience for students interested in construction careers.

Who is building the home?

HBA Demonstration Homes, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the HBA of Greater Cincinnati, has selected Cristo Homes to serve as the project manager of the two-story, 2,872 sq. ft.  “Aviana” craftsman-style home, priced at $385,000. Star One Realtors is the exclusive listing broker. Contact John Prazynski, 513-779-9500, or visit for more information.

How can companies participate in this project?

The HBA is accepting contributions of materials and supplies from member companies who would like to be featured partners. Partners are included in site signage, on this website, on the CiTiRAMA® app, and in project communications and social media. Contact Dan Dressman,, to discuss how your company would like to participate.

When will the Demonstration Home be completed?

The home will be one of five featured homes at CiTiRAMA® 2019, which runs from Sept 7-15 at Springrose Meadows, located in Springdale, Ohio.
