Looking to escape the daily grind of their lives in Austin for a lifestyle that was a bit more nature-oriented, the eight friends purchased ten acres of land near the Llano River. The couples, an eco-conscious bunch, hired architect Matt Garcia to design four energy-efficient tiny houses, each clocking in at approximately 350 square feet and costing around $40,000 apiece.
Each tiny house boasts a bedroom, living room, and bathroom, and was constructed with a minimalist motif—think concrete floors, grained plywood, and a metal exterior. Garcia also constructed an additional 1,500-square-foot cabin with a kitchen and living area as a bigger space for the friends to congregate.
