Good friendship can be very fulfilling and an amazing thing in your life. We meet people every day and with some we become friends and we some just acquaintances. All of us have childhood friends but due to college or moving we have lost contact with them. However, it would be a wonderful thing in life to have and keep friends for a lifetime, someone that truly knows you.
Some people have managed to keep such friendships for a life, and the ones that really amazed us is their decision to grow old together. This dream came true for these friends who decided to build a small town.
Four couples decided to spend their old age together and in order to do so they have decided to build cabins for each couple. They have been friends for almost 20 years, and due to work or other things in life could not always be in touch. Over the years they did their best to live closer to each other, and for them it was a logical step to find a solution how to retire together.
They were interested in environmental-friendly methods and decided to build a town near the Llano River outside of Austin, Texas. They invested all their money in building cabins in the Llano area and each cabin is with a cost of $40,000. The cabins were designed by Matt Garcia making them efficient and cost-effective. All of the cabins are with slanted roofs, reflective walls, insulated windows and water barrels (5,000 gallons).
