Beautiful Porches On Two Sides With A Third In The Back.  Miss Lilly Sits In The Distance.

A Tiny Texas Houses Collection of Imaginative Salvage Building

I decided to do a little Holiday package of my favorite photos of the Tiny Texas Houses that I love most.

It was an 8 year path to create such a collection with the best houses sitting hundreds of miles away from where they were born in some of the best locations in Texas. I will assemble a sampling without getting anywhere near all of the 80 or so houses we have created thus fare for a gift for the eyes, mind, and imagination. Hopefully you will also be able to dream, act on, and manifest your own Tiny Houses in 2015. This is my way to help you visualize the possibilities and grow a new life out of the seeds of your deepest wishes and the freedom that lies at the end of this path.

The Monty Grand Victorian is certainly one of my favorites. It ended up in New Braunfels along the Guadalupe River.

The Cowboy Cabin is a great example of how much living space you can get into a 12' x 28" space.

Cowboy was also set up with a full kitchen and a bar, fold up table, storage ladder, and tons of storage in the kitchen.

The house above is the only house we ever had come back to visit and go through a facelift and change of name. It started as the Bastrop Ranch House and later became the Cowboy Cabin which now sits out in the West Point, Texas area on an incredible piece of land.

This was a small porch designed to be added onto later if they wanted.

In the winter they would only keep the $50 110 volt oil radiator heater at medium and turn it off when they cooked dinner so it would not get to hot in the house.  No need for AC in the summer.

The Vesper Casa was absolutely one of the fanciest of my houses with a mere 12′ x 28′ of size, it incorporated more special features than any other house we built. Check out the balcony for example.

The kitchen in Vicky Zebu has no clutter to be found, but there is enough wide spaces that i'm sure I would leave more.

In looking for some more I found too many to fit in here so I will just add a couple and look for another time to post some more. This is the 12′ 30′ Ellinger House which was lifted over 30′ in the air to get over the tops of the trees.

With the Sweet Miss Lilly which was 12′ x 32′ we close out the set for this photoblog and hope that it gives you the dreams and images you need to materialize your own Tiny House in @015.

Now that is a nice kitchen.  Keeping in mind that this is only supposed to be a guesthouse, it sure is a nice place to want to stay longer too.

Wow, that was a lot of photos for one dose of Tiny Texas Houses.

Please let us know if you are interested in having a custom home built for you as we are still accepting two orders for 2015 to leave the Salvage, Texas location with hopes of building a few for here as well. Thank you for your interest and for sharing this blog so that others can see what is possible with 95% Pure Salvage for the construction materials that we use to create an organic and toxin free house that will last for a century or more if you take care of it.
