Responding to demand for tours at her firm's original LV kit house in Perryville, Mo., Rocio Romero is kicking off a round of national LV house tours starting March 1 in Gallatin, N.Y. The National LV Open House Tour will progress to at least three additional yet-to-be-determined locations around the country.

Named for the vacation house she designed for her parents in Laguna Verde, Chile, Romero's line of LV houses fuse modernist design with kit-home affordability and ease of construction.

Fans and potential future LV home buyers can tour the first location to see the customization possibilities the kit houses offer. Romero, her staff, the Gallatin LV homeowners, and building company Mecca Projects will be on hand to answer questions and discuss design features, the building process, and construction costs.

Four tour times are scheduled. For check-in details and to register, visit
