Where is Round Top, Texas?

I actually had to use Google Maps, because I wasn't sure where Round Top was located. The town is about halfway between Austin and Houston, and according to the 2010 census, it's home for 90 residents.

Round Top is known for their twice annual Antique Fair - one in Spring and one in Fall.


Flophouze is the creation of Matt White and his team from Recycling The Past.

They've taken some old shipping containers and have completely renovated them with recycled material from across the country. According to their website, the materials include harvested wood from upstate New York, reclaimed lumber from a distillery in Kentucky, and refurbished windows from an old school in Philadelphia.

To give it that Texas flair, they've recycled some flooring from an old Texas bowling alley for the countertops, and the work they've done is absolutely incredible.

Available for Purchase

Like what you see? You can even buy one. They can be customized and shipped anywhere in the world. Find out more HERE.

This could be the perfect place for a very unique stay. Bookings are available now starting at $175 per night, with a two night minimum on weekends.
