House hunters looking for that “country in the city” ambience as well as an unusual and reuse-oriented approach to design might want to check out this home made from a quonset hut just a smidge southwest of Austin city limits in Bear Creek.
The one-story house’s interiors are nothing to write home about, but they look well-maintained, comfortable, and more than serviceable. The property’s exterior and surrounding 2.23 acres provide more aesthetically and environmentally stimulating surroundings, with an expansieve covered front porch and a landscape of large shade trees and native plants.
There’s also an outdoor shower, two more decks, a chicken coop, and a small geodesic dome that is probably a playscape of some sort. The 1,659-square-foot home has two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms and features laminate and hard-tile floors and built-in bookshelves. The fenced property comes with two uncovered parking spaces as well as HOA fees of $10/year.
