A welcome mat to some of Austin's most inspirational homes!

Have you ever walked through your neighborhood, taken a look at a weird house, and thought “Who lives there?” or, “What in the world does it look like inside?” We’ve all been curious, which is why the founders of the Weird Homes Tour™ began their strange and wonderful journey.

Three years later, they’ve opened the doors and unlatched the windows of dozens of Texas’s strangest homes for thousands of onlookers. Why? To show that design really has no boundaries. And that we would rather neighbors be strange than be strangers. Like many other communities around the world, Austin can be fun, irreverent, outside the box, innovative, dynamic, proud, strange, and so much more. You just need to know where to look.

This gorgeous book features the one-of-a-kind Austin homes that started it all for the Weird Homes Tour. Page by page, we proudly present these homes and the weird people who live in them, many of whom designed and built their awe-inspiring dwellings by hand. From grand, historic haunts to treehouses and dumpster dwellings, you’re guaranteed to find something that will inspire design changes in your own home.
