One of Austin’s most popular modern home tours was recently held the weekend of March 5th/6th - The Modern Home Tour Austin. Founded by Krisstina Wise, CEO of Goodlife Companies, this year’s tour featured 12 masterfully architected, crafted and designed modern homes and a sold out Day 2 special event.
Day 1 was a 7 hour self-guided tour that packed in some serious bang for everyones' buck! Of course, there was nothing traditional about what this years architects, designers and builders showed us on the 8th Annual Tour. Their visions ranged from a minimalist 1100 sq ft home to a 6,000 sq ft home with breathtaking views of Austin’s hill country.
From east to west these 12 Austin, TX homes were experienced by locals and some who travelled from afar just to experience the annual event. No one left disappointed!
Day 2 was all about education: Aptly titled "Buy it. Live it.” this four-hour Sunday special event detailed every step of the modern custom home building experience. Lex Zarun from Newcastle Homes and Jared Haas from un.box studio had a packed house (no charge for the pun) at 2002 Peoples. They received insight into the processes, challenges, costs and opportunities associated with creating their own unique modern living space in Austin. Questions were asked and this event delivered til well after the scheduled closing time as participants asked questions from the esteemed panel.
4 hours of education at Modern Homes Tour Day 2 proved to be well worth it for this packed room!

To grow we must learn. Lots of valuable information was shared with attendees.
