Check It Out: 4 Couples Built a Community of Tiny Homes

The Bestie Row is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city

As kids, we all had the same fantasy: to live in the same house or neighborhood as our best friends. For Fred and Jodi Zipp, and three of their buddies, however, having that dream wasn't enough, so they decided to build a community of tiny homes where they could spend weekends together. 

Having been friends for over 20 years, the four couples bought a land along the Llano River in Texas and built several off-grid homes themselves. They called it the “Llano Exit Strategy” but netizens decided that “Bestie Row” was a more appropriate name. Originally, they planned to build one big house, but realized personal spaces are important to them. Together with Architect Matt Garcia, they designed a communal space where they can bond and hang out with each other and four sectioned-off spaces where they could relax afterwards. 

Each tiny cabin has a bedroom and a bathroom, while the communal space has a kitchen, a dining area, a living room, and guest bedrooms. Aside from the great architectural design of the living spaces, the small community also takes pride in being energy-efficient as they are designed to have low environmental impact and with sustainability in mind.  

The tiny houses are approximately 400sqft (38sqm), while the communal space is 1200sqft (100sqm). The interiors are the perfect blend of rustic and modern styles, too.
