The wristband that accompanies your ticket gains non-transferable entry for one individual to each of the 13 featured houses on the 2017 AIA Austin Homes Tour.

Shoe Policy: No shoes or bare feet in the homes. Socks or shoe covers must be worn. Shoe covers will be provided.

Children over the age of 10 years will be charged full price. Please ensure that all children are escorted and supervised at all times.

No cameras or camera phones are allowed in the Tour homes. No photographs are to be taken inside the Tour homes. Anyone taking photos on the property or in the Tour homes will risk surrender of their ticket.

  • No smoking, food, or drinks allowed inside Tour homes.
  • Do not open cabinets, closets, drawers, or refrigerators.
  • Do not enter closets or rooms that have been closed or blocked.
  • Do not block driveways or walk on lawns or landscaping.
  • No animals allowed on the Tour, except for service animals.
  • Public restrooms are not provided on the Tour, please plan accordingly.

Because these are private homes, special accommodations may not be possible. Please call AIA Austin if you would like more information about which homes are accessible.


Please remember, no photos may be taken inside the homes on the tour— there are no exceptions.


This is a self-driving tour. There may be restricted parking or special shuttles from a centralized parking area for one or two houses this year. Rules will be apparent at the houses, so please be respectful of signs and parking attendants as you proceed on the tour.


We offer a suggested route in the pages ahead, but feel free to go to any house in any order you choose! Enjoy the tour!

Participate in the Check-In Challenge!

 Here’s how it works:

  • When you’re touring a home, go to on your mobile device and find the house. Fill in the check in pop-up form that comes up, and you’ll be entered into a drawing. Two lucky winners will be selected at random to receive iPads!
  • The more check-ins you have, the more entries you’ll receive!
  • Only one Check-In per house.
  • Check-Ins occur at official check-in locations outside the homes during Tour hours.
  • Check-Ins will post to your Facebook page.
  • iPads generously provided by Melde Construction.
