Owner info

Year Purchased: 1973

About the owner: Although I currently live in Houston, Marfa will always be called 'home'. I attended elementary and junior high school in Marfa. Our family took frequent trips to Big Bend, Presidio and Ojinaga. On several occasions, we viewed the lights, visited the Mc Donald Observatory and Indian Lodge. I have many happy memories of Marfa, especially the friendly people and the delicious Mexican food.

Why the Owner Chose Marfa, TX, USA:
Mi Casita(my tiny home) has been in my family since 1973 and has served as a home for several tenants during the past 40 years. A couple of years ago, I decided to remodel it and use it as a vacation home for family and friends. I travel from Houston three or four times during the year to enjoy the beautiful weather Marfa offers and catch up with old friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The uniqueness about this property is that the inside buildout was performed by three women, my sister-a USDA inspector, my friend-a school teacher and me-a banker. Before each phase, we sat around and watched You Tube videos. I have a true appreciation for contractors and carpenters after this project. I am in love with Mi Casita. As my guests, I hope that you feel that this is your home also.
