Here are her siblings. The Diamond House was the next biggest.
The Diamond House is nested in the middle of the family of three Tiny Texas Houses.
Here is a great example of what can be done with nearly all salvaged parts and pieces.
It is the demonstration of what the Pure Salvage Living Renaissance is all about.
As you look at the pictures and imagine having one for you, consider investing in
The Acre of Hope Airspace Certificates to become a Charter Member of the
Pure Salvage Living Renaissance.
Then you can be a part of making it possible for people to build these all over the country
thus reducing the cost, saving the materials, freeing us from import dependence,
and giving the next 7 Generations something to be truly thankful for,
along with the millions of Baby Boomers downsizing with few choices on hand.
Here she is unfolded and set up on the ranch with here Little Green Vicky next to her.
The full Family shot with all three watching the pasture and the cows, savoring the country life, and never being lonely.
On site and with the sun nearly gone, Rene is trying to get the last touches completed.
This was going to be the door, but I found a better one, after it was installed it showed up from behind some other doors.
Here is an early shot as it is starting out. The porch will be hung on the front and fold down for shipping. This was the first time we did that on the front of the house.
Interior shots of the mini-diamonds which I don’t seem to have better shots of later.
Nice early front shot after I put the other door in.
Here is a shower floor in progress but we have changed many things since then about how we do these showers.
Here is what the oil does to make our diamonds shine a little brighter.
Here is the roof that folds down for transport. Not as much pitch as we like to put now.
This will be the mate in the loft that will open for cooling.
Here you can see the gable window with its matched sister on the back wall.
This is after the grout has been added, but we used the shower vinyl back then which I have since changed from due to the smell of it, even though you could not smell it in the house.
This was the first time we used doors to create the bathroom, wall.
You wouldn’t guess but this is the counter weight system I created for the Murphy bed.
Here is the Murphy bed, made from two doors and in the upright position.
Here is the bathroom wall without the Murphy Bed in front of it.
Murphy bed down, the action position.
This is so rich with the natural color of the wood under the Tung Oil.
This is a nice guest house kitchenette which will include a small fridge.
I love the highback sink and the antique decorative tin for a backsplash.
The shower turned out really fine, once more with my favorite tin roofing on the wall.
Another bathroom sink original cabinet, one of about 45 that we have made that are all unique and use old sinks.
Lots of storage under sink area and a cast iron sink saves more energy by not having to mine, smelt, form, and coat the cast iron with porcelain than this house will use to heat and cool it for life.
Even more storage space by using the front of an old medicine cabinet and fitting it into the corner.
One last shot as she is prepped to fly. We cover such great windows to be sure nothing happens on the way to its new home.
You can not imagine how hard it is to lose a set of diamonds like this.
Here you can see how she travels on the special trailer I built for hauling our houses.
This is how a tiny house can fly.
Setting her down on the foundation. I love using the cranes and you have to for the pre-poured concrete foundations.
There she is before we raise the visor from her eyes where she will get to see the new world that awaits her.
