Have you heard of this amazing company out of Luling, Texas called Tiny Texas Houses?
Their slogan is: “Building The Future With The Past”
And true to their word, they use 99% vintage salvaged materials to build the cutest, tiniest, eco-friendly homes you ever did see!
Each pint-sized home is hand-crafted using recycled materials from demolition of old Texas houses/buildings and is sculpted into “Livable House Art.”
I just love this kind of stuff.
They even do chapels!!
From the builder’s website:
Tiny Texas Houses have been designed and built with the best trees ever harvested, the best hardware ever made, and great salvaged materials to demonstrate that it is possible to reduce our carbon footprint, simplify our lives, and live in a healthy house that will be energy efficient as well as beautiful.

The interiors of these houses are just as charming as the exteriors.
Have a look inside a few of these tiny treasure boxes of reclaimed materials….
Kitchen and baths in Tiny Texas Houses also get the full recycled materials treatment…
I could just sit here all day and drool over pictures of these Tiny Texas Houses, but I have to direct you to their website so you can get the full story and take in many more gorgeous photos.
So who is the brains & brawn behind this brilliantly artistic and eco-friendly business concept?
None other than this creative cowboy -
Brad Kittel- founder and owner of Tiny Texas Houses.
Hats off to Mr. Kittel for taking a clever concept and making it come to fruition. (Not to mention a stylin’ website and sharp marketing campaign!)
If you are ever in Luling, Texas (on I-10, east of San Antonio), you can visit Brad and the crew at Tiny Texas Houses and take the “Tiny House tour”.
Also, the folks at Tiny Texas Houses wanted me to mention their other website Pure Salvage Living - check it out to learn more about the merits of Pure Salvage Building techniques!
