It’s one thing to live in a neighborhood near close friends but to build your own “hood” based solely on this principle might be filed under ‘impractical.’ However, a group of close friends in Austin, TX decided that this was just what they needed. These friends purchased enough land to build four cabins and a larger common building for shared accommodations.
Each couple’s 400-square-foot cabin cost $40,000 to build, while the 1,500-square-foot common building includes a kitchen, space for dinners and activities, and guest accommodations. What they have lovingly pegged as ‘Bestie Row,’ has inspired others across the country to consider “Bestie Hoods,” to maintain their friendships without sacrificing the need for marriage and family life. They have the ‘besties’ of both worlds in their tiny house compound.
Do you have a group of friends you would consider sharing a ‘Bestie Hood’ with?
