"It promises to be inspiring and displays some of the most unique interior finishes we've seen to date."
Projects include fabulous single room to whole-house remodels by award winning contractors. See spacious remodeled kitchens, family leisure and media rooms, outdoor entertainment areas, bathroom remodels and two-story additions. The showcased projects range from $80,000 up to over $1,000,000 in spectacular renovations by Masterpiece Remodeling & Design, Eric Harrison Builders, T.A. Todd Construction, Austin Creative Builders, Hacienda Construction, Realty Restoration, Marsh Vorspan Partners, Don Boozer Construction and CG&S Design-Build.
The tour features great new design and building techniques, custom hand-made cabinetry and creative use of reclaimed building materials, beautiful furnishings, green building technology and unique storage solutions.
Take a drive and visit a photographer's contemporary Rocky Mountain retreat in northwest Austin, step back in time by walking through a magnificent Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired renovation off City Park Road and tour an expansive Texas Tuscan villa in Georgetown with an atrium tower, guesthouse and outdoor pavilion.
Marvel at the handmade cabinetry and antiquities in a gorgeous west Austin bath that is Southern living at its finest, or take a trip to the King Ranch with a renovation designed around antique furnishings, including a bed that LBJ and Lady Bird slept in from the ranch. Drive up the road and warm up to a massive reclaimed stone fireplace, straight out of an Appalachian lodge with antique hand-made trusses and an ingenious gourmet kitchen.
Should you desire to "stay" close to home, visit the beautifully remodeled traditional Lake Austin estate with striking details and a new view of the water. Perfectly matched for the historic Austin neighborhood, it is a lovely second story addition and kitchen transformation not to miss. Finally, for the truly authentically Austin experience, stop over at the eclectic Clarksville cottage with gorgeous detailing and surprises in every room.
You may begin the tour at any home and tickets are available at each for $5.00 per home or $20 for all nine. For a map and more information, visit Home Tour Info or call 512-708-0637.
