They say everything is bigger in Texas, even—nay especially—the boots. Case in point: There's a cowboy boot so large you can live in it. And it's available for rent.
Located in Huntsville, a city about an hour north of Houston, the footwear inspired house and the adjoining bungalow were designed and built by local artist Dan Phillips, who specializes in constructing homes with recycled and salvaged materials.
The two bedroom, one bathroom home, known simply as the "Cowboy Boot House," measures 711 square feet has quite a few special touches, namely the terrazzo floors, which are making quite a comeback in the design world as of late, and the custom spiral staircase that leads up to a roof deck that tops off the boot. The place also features a fireplace, and covered porch with ample deck space. One of the rooms has a ceiling lined with old record sleeves.
Last year, Zillow featured Phillips in a video, where you can see him working on the unique home. "A life without whimsy is certainly a non-life," he says in it.
Phillips isn't done creating clothing shaped dwellings; the Houston Chronicle reports that the artist is planning a cowboy hat property next door to the boot.
The boot is currently available for rent for $1,200 per month.
