Below are the homes we will feature on the 2016 tour.


317 Sampson Street

Engine House No. 2
317 Sampson Street

This unique compound boasts Engine House No. 2, a brick structure originally constructed in 1910 and most recently converted to residential property. This property is also home to six 1890’s era cottages relocated from a nearby area and renovated as residential properties.


3808 Leeland Street

FMW|fablab
3808 Leeland Street

FMW|fablab is a guy and a girl, a shop, some tools and a bunch of dogs. They design and build furniture, art and everyday wares using metal and wood in in Houston, Texas's Greater East End, a neighborhood they also call home. Although they do have a few pieces made from virgin resources, they specialize in reclaimed and upcycled materials and manage to make almost every single scrap into an object of beauty and function.


3908 Walker Street

3908 Walker Street
Greater Eastwood

Home to local artisan and business owners Hillary and Ford Waters, this charming bungalow, originally built in the 1910’s, was relocated to its current site in the Greater Eastwood neighborhood in 1945. After years as a rental property, Hillary and Ford purchased the home in 2012 and completed a series of renovations to make it their own. This unique property features a modern and open concept living, dining and kitchen area with exposed shiplap ceilings, a reclaimed kitchen and an array of artistic touches throughout. There is a story behind nearly every object which fills this home. The backyard served to originate their business, FMW|fablab, which recently opened in its new location in Great Eastwood where the pair teaches welding classes and also fabricates custom and one of a kind pieces of furniture. .


4402 Pease Street

4402 Pease Street
Eastwood

This American foursquare home gives play to mission style influences, popular during its original construction in 1936. Originally a two family home, its first owners, who were school teachers in the neighborhood, purchased the property from The Wilson Company – developers of Eastwood and the well-known Woodland Heights neighborhood. Its current owners purchased the home in 2015 and transformed it into a 5 bedroom, 4 bath, single-family home through a complete renovation. The home boasts both original features like white oak flooring and modern nods to its classic style like hex tile and seeded glass.


4510 McKinney Street

4510 McKinney Street
Eastwood

Built in 1940, this craftsman bungalow spent several decades as a rental property. Recently purchased, its new owners have transformed the home through extensive renovations including a complete kitchen overhaul and bathroom addition. The backyard has received the biggest facelift of all, complete with a fire-pit, outdoor kitchen and cantilevered deck. The front porch and exterior of the home have also been updated with new hardieplank siding.


4429 Walker Street

4429 Walker Street
Eastwood

Built in 1916, this craftsman farmhouse is 2,100 square feet of pure Americana. The interior boasts many original architectural features such as its window and door casings and pine flooring throughout. A recent renovation transformed the upper attic space into a second living area and local craftsman Santos Diaz completed the renovation with custom built-ins both upstairs and down which give nod to the home’s original workmanship. This century old home is a shining example of Eastwood!
