You Can See The Porch Angle With The Roof Coming Together.

Heaven’s Blue Cedar Porch Posts

This Forestry looking Tiny Texas House will look great by the Guadalupe River so close you will see it from the tubes if you are lucky enough to float the river near Wimberly.

Each house is different and this one is no exception for its unique features that I will not copy exactly again. Some parts and pieces are one of a kind that have waited for years to find the right house. The blue porch post made with the hard Spanish Cedar will last for a century more without much wear or tear. So much of this house has come together from many different states and houses that it is hard to count them all. I would guess at least 14 houses have had these parts as part of their existence for many decades before I was even born, which means over a hundred years or more.

Here is a closer look at the porch and how it evolves as a new shape and size from any we have done due to its extra length on the floor that will face the river.

Just to get a sense of proportion using the truck to show how tiny these houses really are, yet they are also very livable.

Here are the set of posts that came off from a house and after waiting for 10 years, they have found a new home to attach to during the next life of supporting other friends, trees that were cut up a century ago. Please consider salvage building to reach sustainability for your resources next time you build, whether you build, big, small, or tiny, and save on the toxin load in your living environment as a bonus too.

The roof decking is a 1×12 Cedar with self sealing underlayments, two layers thick with a new one, came from the Weatherford Log Cabin Bootcamp which we just finished. Great Cedar for the look by the river. The posts have been waiting for the right house, and we happened to have just enough, and not more. Design with what you have rather than design and search the world over for something to fit the hole.
