Weird Homes Tour excitedly announces its return to Houston for the fourth annual event on Saturday, September 28, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This one-of-a-kind home tour takes attendees on a journey across Houston and into some of Bayou City’s most imaginative and wonderful homes, where visitors can see and explore some truly unique designs and meet the minds that created them.

Past favorites on the tour include Sue Shefman’s Hippolotofus Home with her collection of over 2000 hippos, including the well-known hippo art car; Selia Qyinn’s Secret Garden whose backyard oasis is tucked away on three quarters of an acre in Spring Branch; and the KGA Compound, the loft home of interior designer Kelly Gayle Amen with eccentric art and sculpture around every turn.

ABOUT WEIRD HOMES TOUR:
We are a social impact start-up, created by a team of event veterans that takes care of our people, our planet and makes a profit. We were founded in 2014 by Chelle and David J. Neff and held our first tour in Austin that same year. We take our profits and put them back into our communities by investing in smart, well-run nonprofits and other social impact businesses. After our first successful tours in Austin, we brought the Weird Homes Tour to Houston in 2016 and have now expanded nationwide. We promise to value what makes our event cities great. We exist to share the story of past, present, and future culture, as well as preserving and protecting what’s unique in each great city. For more information, visit http://www.weirdhomestour.com.
