live in this cowboy boot house in texas for just $1,200 a month


in the US state where ‘everything’s bigger’, one texas man has created an inhabitable larger-than-life boot-shaped residence. dan phillips, a trained architect and craftsman, has designed and built a family dwelling in huntsville, which is simply referred to as the ‘cowboy boot house’. phillips, a local artist who also resides in the area, specializes in constructing homes with recycled and salvaged materials.

the distinctive dwelling, which is available to rent for $1,200 USD a month, adjoins a bungalow that provides a total of 711 square feet (66 square meters) of floor space. internally, the two bedroom property includes phillips’ custom handcrafted features throughout, with mosaic granite flooring and a spiral staircase that leads up to an elevated roof deck. continuing the western theme, the houston chronicle reports that a cowboy hat-shaped home is planned for next door.

  • It is certainly… I’m just glad they didn’t do it in my neighborhood. And, yes, it really needs a cowboy hat.
