Your own city

    Свой собственный город

    Four families who have been best friends for 20 years wanted to be closer to each other and to nature. They invested their money in a common cause, and built a tiny city just for themselves. Their settlement, called “Llano Exit Strategy”, has four small houses along the Llano River outside of Austin, Texas.


    The tiny houses, each costing roughly $40,000, were designed by architect Matt Garcia. They feature sloped roofs to collect rainwater and barrels that can hold up to 5,000 gallons.


    Heat-reflecting walls remove unwanted heat in summer, and specially insulated windows save heat in winter. The interiors are made of plywood, which has a low price, but at the same time keeps the houses warm and gives a feeling of spaciousness.


    A group of friends spend time in this place as often as they can, and they all plan when it’s time to retire, to meet old age together. It’s a good idea to have such friends!
