Welcome To 'Bestie Row': Lifelong Friends Build Row Of Tiny Houses In The Middle Of Nowhere.
The idea of having a place where you can meet ans spend time with your friends is so appealing to me. I have had the same friends for over 30 years, we met in junior high school, we have shared our best moments and have been there for eachother in the worst. This article made me think of them a lot, I would love to have a place like this where we could meet and spend time together and with our children.
Some friendships last forever. You hear of lifelong friends often living in the same towns just so they can socialize whenever they wish, be a part of each other’s family lives, and finally grow to be the grey-haired besties who rock on the porch and talk about the “good ol’ days”.
Four couples who had been best friends for 20 years decided they were going to trump living in the same town. No way were they going to let the business of life keep them from enjoying that special connection that they’d grown to love. So they decided to literally create their own “Bestie Row.” They all were fans of the tiny house movement, and decided to build their own little compound based around that idea.
Because when you can say, “We’re going to be grey-haired friends,” you know you’ve found a bond that can only strengthen.
They employed the assistance of architect Matt Garcia to make their dream come true.
They purchased land along the Llano River, just outside of Austin, Texas.
At first they considered one large house. However, they realized that personal space is necessary for even the closest of friends.
Still, they wanted a space to commune together. So they built a 1,500 sq. ft. community building with a kitchen, dining area, and space for guests and activities.
Their individual homes are 400 sq. ft. cabins, running around $40,000 each.
