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….

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 –

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!

    Howdy! Just love these tiny houses, I’ll take two! They are actually homier than the original Tumbleweed tiny house company design, on the outside and inside. My favorite is photo #4.

    You’re quite welcome, Sarah !
    I guess I need to take a little road trip (about 3 to 4 hours away) and go see those in person !

  • These are gorgeous. What a concept! Very cool. I can see actually living in one of these or having one in the rear yard for countless reasons and purposes. He must do very well.

    Really love these little places, and the concept of re-using old architecture…..you don’t get that quality of workmanship from new construction methods!

  • I like number 4 also….. They are all very nice.

    I love these houses. They are absolutely beautiful. My husband is a retired navy veteran and we have told our children that when our baby boy, whom is 12, graduates from HS that we are buying us a RV and travel. I would like one of these instead. I’m from East Texas but would love to take a trip just to see the houses.

    Spending time at Tiny Texas Houses with Brad and his crew is very high on my worthwhile list..NO Picture can give the feel of how magnificent these are works really are…Hard to smell the sanded aged woods, the distinctive flavor of Walnut oiled woods and the appreciation of craftsmen fitting woods that no long are available any place on earth…These artisans are in fact preserving our BEST History…
