Where others see a mattress frame, do you envision a support for your climbing plants? Does everybody know that zebra collectibles are what you want for all gifting occasions? Did your artist's canvas spill over until you realized you'd covered every wall, floor and ceiling with your unique style? If so, then your home, garden or artist's studio just might be what the Houston Weird Homes Tour® is looking for.
The eclectic homes tour, now in its fourth year, is slated for the last Saturday in September and it comes with some cool perks if your abode gets selected for the tour.
What's in it for you?
Participating homeowners receive:
— Professional photos of their home to use for their own purposes
— Mention in local and regional press as well as mention of associated business
— Social Media and website inclusion leading up to and during the event
— The ability to sell any products at your home on the day of the tour
— Two pairs of tickets to the Weird Homes Tour for friends and family
Who Else Benefits?
Ticket sales from the Houston tours will support New Hope Housing, an organization that provides life-stabilizing, affordable and permanent housing for people who live on very limited incomes.
