The Marfa, West Texas Trip & Blog Post

First, this trip  adventure and photo album is graciously dedicated to the kind couple of Mr. Don & Mrs. Linda Shafer. Don and Linda Shafer are Austin Silent Market real estate clients and  are original friends with my broker Dad George Sears McGee. I, George Vance McGee befriended Don and & Linda during casual passerby's in Clarksville West Austin as a fellow resident. I was an 7-8 year Clarksville loft studio renter. Don and Linda mentioned they spend parts of their year in a "pre-fabricated"  Modern Home and Guest Home they own & frequent in Marfa, Texas. The Shafers' created this estate on a gorgeous View-tastic hilltop. It's called, "the Glass House."

I'd personally describe the town and ambiance of Marfa Texas, as quiet, artsy, sleepy, and cool with a touch of NYC/Brooklyn Hipster sprinkled on top. All while still retaining West Texas authenticity.

 My wife and I were fortunate enough to be house guests for 1 week.

Here were some of our enjoyable commercial business visits (that were open during our visit) in Marfa, Texas
