The tour starts off at The Bone House (2017 Avenue N). The group is allowed to view the entire house, inside and out. Dan then gives a brief (or not so brief, depending on the crowd) lecture and answers questions.
After everyone's questions have been answered, the group caravans to the other locations on the tour. A colorful, hand-drawn map of these locations can be found here.
The second stop of the tour is "The Tree House." This is currently the home of Huntsville's favorite new bakery - Sugar Skull Sweets. If you're lucky, they'll be open during the tour and you can purchase a cupcake, cookie, or scone. (They're good - promise!)

A few of the houses are just passed by without stopping, but you can go back on your own with your map and take photos if you want. The tour makes a brief stop at Charleston House and Story Book House:

The tour ends at the building site of more Phoenix Commotion homes, and Dan is available to answer any additional questions.
We would like to thank Dan, Edie, and Bob for having us on the tour. Dan has a wealth of knowledge and a great sense of humor and we can all learn a thing or two from him. Edie and Bob currently live in The Bone House and allow strangers into their home for these tours. Be sure to be respectful of their home.
The tour costs $10 per person and can be paid for online. For more information and to really get a feel or what the Commotion is all about (Sorry; Couldn't help it!), check out the Phoenix Commotion website here: www.phoenixcommotion.com. The next public tour is scheduled for February 25 at 2:30p.
