Now in its seventh year, the Austin Weird Homes Tour is producing a 100 percent virtual tour. Visitors can come along with the Weird Homes crew and visit wonderfully weird homes from the comfort and safety of their home.

This year’s tour includes a Tiny Treehouse Oasis; an Aqua House with a heart-shaped pool; The Bartlett Bank House, a 1904 bank that was “blown up” by Austin legend Matthew McConaughey in the Richard Linklater film, The Newton Boys; the mushroom/sand dollar shaped house on Lake Travis called The Sand Dollar House; and a returning Tour favorite, the Home of the Mysterious Planchette, a historian’s home filled with an expansive collection of automatic writing planchettes, Ouija boards, séance relics, and a host of other occult antiquities and ghostly encounters.

Tickets for the tour are $25 per device, or  $45 for a ticket plus a copy of the coffee table book, Weird Homes: The People and Places That Keep Austin Strangely Wonderful. Ticket purchasers will be emailed an access link one hour before the event. The event will be conducted through Zoom.

A portion of all tickets sales goes directly to LifeWorks and their fight for affordable housing for at risk teens.
