DIY Off-Grid Eco Cabin Getaway in Texas

Get off-grid and disconnect from wi-fi and the hustle and bustle in this DIY eco-cabin in Blanco, Texas. The home sits on 40 acres of land and was designed and built by the couple renting it out — they have their own eco-cabin just 200 ft. from their rental.

You’ll find a 1,500-gallon rainwater collection tank that provides drinking and shower water, a solar system to provide power, and more. There’s a screened-in porch for a lovely cup of morning coffee, and you can climb up to the sky deck to watch transfixing sunsets and sunrises! Book your stay over at their website!

    That’s an interesting home. I don’t care for the sink in the corner where I can’t be directly in front of both sides, but I like everything else just fine. Open, spacious, and no loft to have to crawl around in. : )

    I love it except I have to have dark to sleep in, so I would need a walled bed room with no window or massive room darkening shades . Because I sleep late! I couldn’t live in this space but would love to ABnB here!

    Lovely little house. Does the 1,500 gallon rainwater catchment tank provide adequate water for the residents? What is the average annual rainfall in that part of Texas? These questions are respectfully asked. Stephan of Arkansas

    I like the design, love the rooftop seating, and the location seems interesting but the use of C grade plywood for interior paneling, and installing it in both a vertical and a horizontal orientation, looks very, very cheap. If I had a carpenter working for me that did such they would not have a job the following day.
    I also agree with an earlier poster that the sink in the corner is not optimal.
