Four Couples Build Their Own Tiny Town So That They Can Grow Old Together

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to grow old in the same neighborhood with your best friends? Well, these best friends decided to build their tiny town to grow old together in.


The four couples have spent the past two decades doing everything together, and they are thicker than family. Although they live somewhat close to one another, they don’t get to see each other as much as they want to.


Therefore, they decided to change this by pooling their money together to build a town near the Llano River, outside of Austin, Texas.


Their end goal is to retire and move to their peaceful best friend city in the near future.


Their four cabins, dubbed the Llano Exit Strategy, cost $40,000 each.


They were designed by Matt Garcia to be affordable and energy efficient. They are outfitted with slanted roofs, reflective walls, and insulated windows.


The houses are super adorable with plenty of wood accents. The interiors were intentionally covered in plywood.


The gorgeous cabins measure around 350-square-feet each. Thanks to smart planning, lots of built-in shelving and plenty of windows, the cabins feel quite spacious.


Also, the friends did not add a kitchen to each cabin; they created one large communal kitchen instead.


Besides, there’s lots of shelving for books and other odds and ends, making storage a breeze.


A plethora of windows let in lots of light, along with the surrounding natural scenery. Each cabin is particularly designed to offer the best view possible, with no cabin blocking another cabin’s view.


The roof is designed to collect rainwater, that filters into water barrels capable of storing up to 5,000 gallons total. That allows them to enjoy a natural supply of water to take showers and enjoy modern day comforts.


Everything serves a purpose. For example, the corrugated steel exteriors reflect sunlight so that the interiors stay cooler in the hot Texas summers.


Instead of adding a kitchen to every house, the friends created a 1500-square-foot communal gathering space for cooking and serving up delicious meals.


That’s one of the few spaces where the friends went big – adding a full-size fridge and a commercial-style range. A black granite countertop separates the dining area and living room.


They included a small guest bedroom – because they do have other family and friends outside of their core group. They included bunk beds and a spacious octagonal wooden picnic table.


The group of friends have not moved in yet, and they still have some things to do – like plant their vegetable garden. But they’re excited about what their self-made community has in store for them one day soon.
