Four couple who loved spending time together with a passion for protecting the environment have created their own village that's been dubbed 'Llano Exit Strategy'.

They foursome bought land along the Llano River in Austin Texas and populated it with a series of small eco-friendly homes, which only cost $40,000, and built them in a row so they could all live in harmony. 

While they had initially considered one large house, they ultimately decided that some privacy would make these new homes even better.

The houses are made from reflective material that help insulate them and they come with barrels that can hold up to 5,000 gallons of water at a time. 

They were all professionally designed, so although they're small and minimalist they have a luxurious feel about them. 

Has to be something to be said about this way of living. Seems ideal!
