The Retreat Is 3/4 Finished And Will Be To Teach The Interior More Than The Basics Of Framing But Will Also Have Porches, Exterior Trim, And Other Things To Do That You Will Need To Do On Any Tiny House Of This Grand Size.

The Retreat For Sale located in Texas ‘will sleep the most people of any Organic House yet created!’

The Retreat is the biggest house on site at the moment and is far from finished, but ready for the customizing of the interior. It will have a large master bedroom upstairs, a big sitting area, and a second bedroom above as well.

Here is how some ideas grow and get tested with a quick sketch to see how they look.

Here you can see the projection of a balcony for the upper loft sitting area. These are parts of our mind, ideas that form into reality, if we nurture them onward.

You will get to go in and see how we build them from the framing to the various stages of progress that you can see in Manifestation Bay at the moment.

The Retreat is a 12x26' with a giant second floor.  The interior is awaiting its final owner to help determine how the interior will be finished out.  This would make an incredible home and office as the upstairs is gigantic and would be totally private.  Sliding divider wall would make the living area office and hide the breakfast and bath areas if desired.

The Retreat is the biggest house on site for the time being, and if we can, it will stay on site for people to rent out over night and stay at for weekends away from the city.

It is a 12′ x 26′ house with two exits, lots of stained glass and by far the most expensive of the houses in Manifestation Bay. It will hit over a hundred grand, how much depending on the porches and finish out. With a full kitchen, big bath, breakfast area, living room, and massive volume of Space Magic, it is by far the best of the series of Art Houses available for sale. It is a tall house though and not suited for shipment out of the state of Texas really. Again I would love to see someone own it for our B&B plans as it would hold wedding parties and much more to generate a great income for someone without the hassle of running a B&B, thus pay for itself in less than 8 years and still have a hundred years of life left.

I included a few pictures showing some of the possible porch configurations too. This could be really nicely dressed out inside but the price could also easily reach $125,000-$135,000 and be worth every penny of it.

Some of the possible layouts include a downstairs bedroom area, even a second daybed sleeping area, both being able to be private areas, as well as room for a King sized bed and a double bed upstairs, even topping it off with another daybed in the upstairs sitting area or a hammock out on the stargazing balcony that it could also have accessible from the loft. Wow! Add to that the possible screened in with glass sashes for the heat of summer or cold of winter, and you could add two more sleeping spaces as well as an outdoor eating area. So much can be done and if I get my dream, someone will allow me to do all of this and keep the house in Salvage, Texas to earn the Patrons/Owners a great return on the investment (9%), plus get the depreciation of 10% a year, as well as have a great house to come stay in for 30 days each year without hurting your income from the investment. You would have a hard asset, appreciating and performing, getting you major write-off benefits and be able to be passed on to your children without tax consequences once you have it fully depreciated. The second 7 year period you might leave the house here would jump to 15% return on investment for the next decade. That is my dream for this house so that many will get to stay in it, share wedding gatherings, family reunions, and allow for both young in the lofts and the older folks down below for a great weekend getaway from the cities all nearby.

Please take a look at some of the possible features, come walk through, and learn how you to can be a part of creating the town of Salvage, Texas where you will not only be welcome, you will be a part owner with a home in the midst of a paradise. Air BnB has six of our houses already and will be a great way to bring in people for this house too. But….. even if you do not want it for my dream, you can consider it for yours and we can ship it to places not to far away and you might be the one to enjoy it for a lifetime or two.

So the kitchen counter is a 21" wide slab of Cypress that was a counter top a hundred years ago, then stored for a century till we came along again to save it and give it life again.

We could have a fold down table here with a daybed to the right and curtains that could close to the left to create another downstairs sleeping area.

I will be taking out this set of windows in the end wall to raise them for a daybed to sit along that wall and to have sliding doors or curtains that would allow that to be private as a bedroom area if desired, or a private den.

You could also have a lift chair put in that would let you go up and down or have a dumbwaiter for the price of a truck winch and a good pulley above, a nice antique throne and you will lift up to dream land with no effort at all.

The sitting area could also lead out to a Romeo and Juliet balcony that would let you stargaze or sleep out there at night.

Look at the size of the master suite.  Can not be seen from below so it is totally private.

We could add a simple porch, or a wrap around.  The difference would be incredible, but also more expensive and worth it.

If we finish the least expensive way, with just a couple of open porches at the doors, it will run about $95,000 but if I got to add all the parts I would love to include, like the balcony, closed in porches, and other goodies could take it up into the $120,000s but it would be an incredible investment that would pay back in so many incredible ways, besides giving you bragging rights on owning a piece of House Art so big it can be a place for so many to dream a night away in that no one will believe it is a 95% Pure Salvage Organic Cottage that will last the rest of your lifetime.

For more information please get in touch with me at BWK@Tinytexashouses.com. Shipping and handling are separate costs and all dependent on where it is going, if we are going to set it up, and what carrier is going to haul it. Out of state is not an easy thing for this house but it is possible. My favorite choice it to keep it at Salvage, Texas (Which is outside Luling on IH10 in the midst of Austin, San Antonio at a 45 minute drive, and Houston on the other side about 140 miles.

Thanks for visiting Tiny Texas Houses.
