Not your normal Parade of Homes, for sure.
From the Big Bend Sentinel:
Tour unique Terlingua homes
TERLINGUA - The 8th annual Terlingua Home Tour is scheduled for Sunday, February 8.
The focus of the tour is alternative energy and/or construction materials and the showcased homes in the tour this year feature adobe, rock, and straw bale construction, solar and wind energy, water catchment systems, and unique artistic flavors. The tours will begin at noon and 3 pm on the porch in front of the Terlingua Trading Company in the Terlingua Ghostown.
Tickets are $20 per person.
Transportation is generously donated by Big Bend River Tours, Desert Sports, and Far Flung Outdoor Recreation Center although participants may be asked to caravan in personal vehicles if necessary.
A wine and cheese reception will follow each tour at Espresso y Poco Más in the Terlingua Ghostown.
All proceeds from the tour will benefit Last Minute Low Budget Productions, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to supporting the dramatic arts in south Brewster County through community productions and educational opportunities.
