Chris Hughes + Alexa Meade wish they could offer real-life tours in addition to the video tours you’ll find on this website, but unfortunately the physical Funhouse House site is not open to the public. The Funhouse House was not built as a tourist attraction (though it may still be a trap). Chris and Alexa actually live in the Funhouse House, making it a very personal place: Sometimes dirty dishes pile up in the kitchen, sometimes toothpaste gunk collects in the bathroom sink, and sometimes the trash sits a little too long before being brought to the curb.
Never has there been a concrete blueprint or hard and fast vision for the Funhouse House. Much of the Funhouse House was and is built by Chris and Alexa spur of the moment, the result of a compulsion to scratch an artistic itch or cobble together a sweet surprise for one another as a means of professing their mutual love. Had there been some grand notion to develop a destination for outside onlookers, Chris and Alexa would have foregone investing countless hours in a home nestled in a sleepy residential neighborhood with zero chance of being re-zoned for commercial purposes. Chris and Alexa celebrate the private facet of their Funhouse House — it guarantees that everything built within it will continue to be created with the intention of making the other smile. That’s reward — and renown — enough for them.
