Welcome to Tiny Texas Houses

“Building the Future with the Past”

Tiny Texas Houses Sign

There is a generation of housing materials already harvested, sliced, diced, formed, and proven healthy and toxin free available in this country.  Materials that are 100% American grown, mined, smelted, formed, created with pride and built to last for centuries.

Why throw these materials in the dump and use Chinese imports, speed grown wood, vinyl, plastics, glues, sheetrock, carpeting or other “modern, big box store” material junk that just adds to the toxic soup in our lives?

Tons of vintage materials are at our fingertips waiting to be re-harvested — awaiting our awakening to the responsibilities we have to live with, not destroy the planet that we share.  With some imagination and simple Human energy anyone can have energy efficient tiny houses to live in for the rest of their lives. Sub-Zero carbon footprint houses are not only possible, they are here – our tiny houses are proof that this concept works.

My goal is to show people what can be done with a concept I call Pure Salvage Building. That means that everything from the doors, floors, windows, lumber, porch posts, glass, door hardware, and even the siding has been saved and re-used to create houses that we hope will last for a century or more, thus every house we build is made from 95% Pure Salvage.

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.

Each custom, hand-crafted Tiny Texas House is a unique piece of House Art that will last for the rest of their owner’s lives, and generations to come.

I hope you get a chance to visit our facility in Luling Texas and see in person what 99% Pure Salvage Living looks like — Once you do, you’ll know why it just makes perfect sense to Build the Future from the Past.
