3rd Annual Weird Homes Tour

Saturday, October 6, 2018 | 10:00 am to 6:00 pm


The Weird Homes Tour is a self-guided, one-of-a-kind journey that takes attendees throughout Houston and into some of the city’s most extraordinary homes.

Featuring eight homes, the tour offers a peek into the lives of Houstonians who have blurred the line between art space and living space and live amongst a breathtaking array of art and unique collections.

Seven of the homes are included in general tickets. The newly completed McGowen Container House owned by Will Breaux, is included as an eighth stop with VIP tickets.

A portion of ticket sales will be donated to local affordable housing charity, New Hope Housing, an organizationwhose core purpose is to provide life-stabilizing, affordable, permanent housing with support services for people who live on very limited incomes.

About the Weird Homes Tour

The Weird Homes Tour was founded in Austin in 2014 by Chelle and David J. Neff who had a vision to showcase the places that make Austin fun, irreverent, strange and dynamic. After the first successful tours in Austin, the Neffs brought the Weird Homes Tour to Houston in 2016 (a city arguably weirder than Austin), and it has expanded to New Orleans, Detroit, and Portland.

The group has recently released a bestselling coffee table book, Weird Homes: The People and Places That Keep Austin Strangely Wonderful.


General tickets are $30 to see seven homes. VIP tickets are $55 and include the eighth home, the McGowen Container House, and a copy of the new book, Weird Homes: The People and Places That Keep Austin Strangely Wonderful. Ages 13 and under are free with a guardian.
