This one bedroom tiny home with a loft is located in my hometown: San Angelo! (For the best fried catfish and barbeque anywhere in the state, check out Packsaddle on Knickerbocker…)

You’re welcome to pay us a visit and check out more than a dozen tiny homes all in the same village, each unique and with different features to learn about.
