David J. and Chelle Neff are turning in the keys to the Weird Homes Tour.

The Neffs started the annual tour in 2014 after walking by a home in North Austin that looked like the Alamo and wondering “who lives there?” and “what does it look like inside?”

The tour has been known for finding an eclectic assortment of homes, each with a story. Sometimes it’s the people: an interesting artist or a collector of anything from items with giraffes on them or Matchbox cars. Sometimes it’s the house itself: one that was designed to look like a nautilus or one that was once a bank. 

“We’re just retiring,” David J. Neff says, though they are open to conversations with anyone who wants to take over the tour, which has been the couple’s side project.
