That’s exactly what four Texas couples had in mind when they decided that living in the same town just wasn’t enough. They’ve been best friends for over 20 years, and they weren’t about to let life separate them, so they decided to literally build a “Bestie Row.” Being fans of the tiny house movement, they built a compound of small, functional homes all in a row.
Architect Matt Garcia was enlisted to help make the dream a reality.
The couples purchased land along the Llano River, right on the outskirts of Austin, Texas.
Initially, they were thinking of just making one huge house, but they decided a little personal space is always good, even for best friends.
But that’s not to say they didn’t want to be together either, so they also built a 1,500-square-foot community building with a kitchen, dining room, and guest and activity space.
The individual houses are all 400 square feet and cost around $40,000 each.
They dubbed the community the “Llano Exit Strategy” and designed it to withstand the harsh Texas climate.
Every building was designed with sustainability and environmental impact in mind.
