Paul,
Do you think they will ever give tours of other yards? I have always wanted one of the Heights.

Rob- I just saw this post now.Sorry for the delay. If you haven't already had the tour(s)of your choice, I wouldn't just wait for it, I'd go out and try to make it happen. I have had good luck that way myself. As far as the Heights are concerned, I walked in and just asked permission to shoot some photos. They couldn't have been nicer. I realize that this was a long time ago and policies have changed perhaps, but you still have a good shot of just hitting it right. Maybe calling directly to the house foreman ? Be concise, friendly, and direct. He may just say "come on in". I would avoid going through a middle person who has no discretionairy power themselves to make it happen. Work on your end and I'll zip a message to somebody that might be able to help. Good luck !
