New!! Organic Cottage TTH building plans: Monty Grand, Writers Cottage, & Inner City Sanctuary

After many delays I am glad to finally be able to offer a series of Organic Cottage TTH building plans: Monty Grand, Writers Cottage, & Inner City Sanctuary. These are some of my most popular designs that I am producing for people to be able to use as a foundation for creating their own versions of these classics in sustainable organic cottage design using 95% Pure Salvaged materials.

While most can not afford to purchase and move the Monty Grand Victorian which is for sale at the moment ($125,000 Plus packing up, moving, and unpacking to set up costs), some may be able to build one like it in the part of the world they live in, if just given a few pointers. This set of plans does more than just point, and the pictures of the house completed, as well as in progress are what will make this plan set unique to the offerings on the market now.

Monty Grand Victorian

Imagine sitting on this porch and watching the day come to its end, relaxed.

Here is the Monty Grand Victorian Kitchen with 18 drawers and doors, secret hiding spots, with refrigerator, convection micro wave, induction plate with two burners, and more.

I created the plans as a 12’x 30′ version instead of the 12′ x 28′ version that we built. This would allow for more living space in the middle area and where the trundle beds are located, which also join to form a king sized bed. (Plans for that not included at present)

The Monty Grand Kitchen was one of the nicest of them all.

This is a special illusion wall w/2 closets, a trundle day bed, teeny loft, and designed to give the illusion of much greater size than it has.  This is a 12' wide x 13'2" loft peak.

Big back porch with screens for the right times and when the tax man comes around.  Then add the windows for the cold and hot weather and open the windows to the house to share the heating and cooling.

The Writer’s Cottage is the perfect satellite house for using as a master suite or one of the bedrooms that would be just small enough to not qualify as official living space, be depreciable over 10 years time, and potentially make some money for you as a bed and breakfast space or home for a live in gardner.

This too was created as a plan set that is bigger than the original house to provide for a bit more living space and correct what I saw as tighter spaced the first time of creating this form of organic cottage.

This is a 10' x 12'  plus the upper floor which will hold a couple twin beds or a double.

The other set of plans for the Inner City Sanctuary is a nice middle ground between the tiny Writers Cottage, and the bigger Monty Grand Victorian or our other set for the Cowboy Cabin. The Inner City Sanctuary actually made it into downtown area of Dallas, Texas where it settled in the back yard in the trees.

Here is the Inner City Sanctuary which was built in Luling and moved 300 miles away to downtown Dallas, Texas.

Surprise, Monty Grand Victorian is coming out of hibernation: and For Sale

Yes, it is true, the incredible co-creation by the owners, Gladys being the artistic inspiration behind the colors and decor of this wonderful house that it turns out, has never been lived in to this day, after a couple years on site.

Imagine sitting on this porch and watching the day come to its end, relaxed.

Circumstances changed soon after the house arrived, including finding out the septic was going to be $20,000 when new regulations went in place. So, with other changes in circumstance, our Sweet Monty Grand Victorian will be adopted and moved to a new place, or back to Salvage, Texas where it could sit for the new owner as a get away as well as investment they can make a good income from, 8% annual return, use it when they want to get out of the city, and depreciate it over ten years so as to let the government pay for it rather than you pay them taxes on your hard earned income. doesn’t this look better than a check sent to IRS?

The incredible trundle bed that can convert to a king size bed.

Imagine having a set of front doors like this on your IRA account, or your 401K. This is a physical asset, a house you can live in, share, and pass along even if the internet goes down, unlike your bank account, you will still be able to access it and survive thanks to it being a hard asset instead of a piece of paper. Plus, this will make you cash back in big chunks compared to tiny ones, or none, as we rent it out for the B&B, care for it, pay taxes on it, and keep it ready for the day you want to bail out of the city and relax, get away, and find a peace and simplicity that only an Organic Cottage like this Tiny Texas House can provide.

This grand Organic Cottage has a footprint on the ground of over 750 square foot with a loft above giving another 120 sf of living space under roof. That is almost 900 sf of floor space with a screened and glassed in back porch, open front porch, loft, and main living areas. Wow. Not a tiny house really but truly an organic cottage.

The screened and glassed in back porch can be heated and cooled, but with the glass out, as in when the tax man comes to visit, it will only be a screened back porch and those  vintage glass sash inserts will be hard to find.

So the big Question? How much money to own this incredible one of a kind creation, yet to be lived in…… $145,000NEW PRICE $123,000 and it is possible to also get all the furnishings, pictures, decor, appliances, and all things ready for instant living when it arrives. While it may seem expensive to some people, the three thousand man hours that went into this house, the quality materials, and the craftsmanship of it. As I am not building any more for the public, this is a rare opportunity. Only one other house that I have built has ever been lived in and resold, twice over five years due to circumstances that forced a move, and the last time selling for twice the original sale price. Of 75 houses out on land, this will be the second to be offered up for resale.

This is for showing by appointment only and then with many qualifiers before showing it, such as having money in hand and not needing a bank loan to buy it, having a place to put it in advance or moving it to Salvage Texas is an option, and then we can arrange an appointment for showing it to a potential buyer. It is located in New Braunfels, Texas, not here on my site in Luling.

Please contact BWK@tinytexashouses.com for more information or to arrange a showing appointment.

Here is a series of shots from onsite at the Monty Grand Victorians home.  It sits on the river near New Braunfels, Texas and is the sweetest house I have done for its style and flavor.  What really makes this though is the incredible job that Gladys has done decorating it, and working with me to create a flavor filled color wonderland with dragonflies, butterflies, and colors all about.  It is a fairy land for sure and one that should go into the Tiny House Hall of Fame.  I hope you enjoy it.   We will not be making many more to be shipped away from my home here at the territories, and this will always rank as one of my favorites.
