Summary

Have you ever walked through your neighborhood, taken a look at a weird house, and thought “Who lives there?” or, “What in the world does it look like inside?” We’ve all been curious, which is why the founders of the Weird Homes Tour™ began their strange and wonderful journey.



Three years later, they’ve opened the doors and unlatched the windows of dozens of Texas’s strangest homes for thousands of onlookers. Why? To show that design really has no boundaries. And that we would rather neighbors be strange than be strangers. Like many other communities around the world, Austin can be fun, irreverent, outside the box, innovative, dynamic, proud, strange, and so much more. You just need to know where to look.



This gorgeous book features the one-of-a-kind Austin homes that started it all for the Weird Homes Tour. Page by page, we proudly present these homes and the weird people who live in them, many of whom designed and built their awe-inspiring dwellings by hand. From grand, historic haunts to treehouses and dumpster dwellings, you’re guaranteed to find something that will inspire design changes in your own home.

    Our world is mysterious and conspiratorial. Networking is key - people who exercise power accept that success depends upon who you know. Some of these networks are obvious and visible, while others are hidden. Criminals and fundamentalist cults are sinister - but some secret societies help and guard us.  
    There are wheels within wheels. Unsuspected power sources are interconnected. Concealed watchers and listeners monitor phones, emails, and the Internet. Knowledge is power - and secret knowledge is greater power. Masonry has many secrets. Signs, codes, ciphers, passwords, and symbols abound - for those who recognize their meanings.  
    Masons are prominent throughout the world today in academic circles, armed services, police, government, commerce and industry, finance, and medicine. What are their aims and how important is their influence? Researchers believe some of Masonry’s famous members have included Edward VIII, George VI, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry S. Truman, General Douglas MacArthur, Gene Autry, and Virgil Grisson

    Falling in love was never part of the plan! 
    Sixteen-year-old Regan Stone wants nothing more than to escape her gossip-ridden hometown. Every choice she makes is deliberate, from the out-of-state college she’s aiming for, to her dual-credit classes. She has a plan, and it doesn’t include a boyfriend. 
    Lane Cary's leaving for college soon. It's supposed to be the greatest adventure of his life. All he can think about is his best-friend-since-forever, Regan. It’s taking him all summer to work up the courage to confess she’s way more than a friend to him, but he’s running out of time. 
    Can one kiss destroy childhood friends? Or could it be the spark that ignites hidden feelings? One thing’s for sure, summer’s end will change everything. 
    If you're a fan of rollercoaster romances with plenty of swoon, and authors Jenny Han or Kasie West, you’ll love this fun read. Get your copy of Summer's End today!
