We spent just shy of two months in Austin, TX. We split the time between a condo in the new Mueller development and a house in Zilker. The separate rentals actually ended up being pretty cool as between the two of them we were able to get a good sense of the city as a whole.
The fam and I learned new things:
- Service roads. The layouts along interstates change from the typical perpendicular exit to parallel service ways. You notice immediately after crossing the LA/TX border.
- Dry heat is a thing.
- Damn good tacos.
Also, this city had a respectable contingent of Automatticians. We laughed, we cried, we coworked. Good times.

The tiny houses fascinate me…
They were amazing. The efficiency of the spaces and the craftsmanship just blew me away.
The houses are built from like 99% reclaimed materials–really cool stuff like 400 year old wood and fixtures from the 1800s and early 1900s. The guy that runs it pulls all the materials in through his other venture:
I LOVE reclaimed materials stuff like that.
