The space
Please read through the entire listing to avoid any disappointments or confusion later.

This casita has been one of the biggest projects Zach and I have taken on together. We built it from an empty shipping container over the course of a year with the help of some skilled friends. We are so excited to get to share all of our hard work with people looking to enjoy the solitude and wonder of the Big Bend. Check out our social media to see our journey from beginning to end!

The casita sits on 10 acres that you’re welcome to explore. Keep a look out for cool rocks and fossils. I’ve left a collection of ones I’ve found on the plant stand, feel free to add to it so others can enjoy your finds! We have two working ranch kitties that live outside and roam the property freely. They’re both very friendly and will likely hang out with you while you're staying at our place. They are outside kitties so please don’t let them swoon you into letting them inside. If winds are low enjoy a fire in our fire pit built from metal scraps from the build. Anti gravity chairs provided for the best star gazing. Vintage glider and chair under the shade cover for lounging and taking in the views.
A 250 gallon hand built converted propane tank, off-set stick burner smoker. The 8” stainless smoke stack is part of a brew kettle from a brewery in San Antonio! You can smoke a whole hog on this thing and more. There’s also a small grill. Be sure to bring your own wood/charcoal and lighter fluid! If you use the grill or smoker please be sure to shovel the ashes into the bucket provided the next morning after they’ve cooled. A hand built disc golf basket is close by for your throwing pleasure.

I am honored to call Terlingua and the Big Bend area my home. My husband and I spend our time out here exploring everything this magical place has to offer. From hiking the infinite trails, kayaking the Rio Grande and cruising all the back country roads. When we want to take it easy we take a seat on the porch in the Terlingua Ghost Town to enjoy the views, stories and music.
