When people are younger, they usually spend lot of time with their friends. But as they grow old, they have other responsibilities and the time spent with friends gets reduced. But this is not the case with the people in this story. They have built their small houses next to each other.
The idea is to live close to their friends and have fun. Actually, they choose their neighbours by themselves. They set up a 1,500 square foot community building. Houses are with modern design, meeting the needs of the owners. The price tag for each house is under $40,000. All of the materials are sustainable and environmentally friendly. They bought a piece of land on the Llano River in Texas, close to Austin. The first idea was to build one large house, but this way turned out to great.
The friends visit this place and spend time there as often as they can. Also, they all plan to retire on the property.
