For Sale: The Tiny Texas Farmhouse Gambrel Cottage

UPDATE: October 11th, 2013: The Farmhouse Gambrel is for Sale!

This friendly little gambrel-roofed farmhouse is just the ticket if you need a backyard office, guest room, exercise room, yoga studio, or artist’s retreat. She’d make an adorable little country store at your campground or resort retreat! She would also make the perfect little starter cottage for that piece of empty country land you’ve been itchin’ to buy!

The Farmhouse Gambrel is 200 s.f., as one large open room plus loft. She has a kitchenette and bathette.

She is 11 ft. wide by 18 ft. long and approximately 13’6″ ft. high at roof peak.

She is small enough to be easily transported by truck to your location. She’s under 200 s.f., so she should qualify as a garden or yard shed in most urban areas and not require a permit (please check with your local authorities). She is best suited for warm climates – she’s a southern farmgirl at heart.

    Love the concept of living in small spaces and especially using materials that are recycled! As a retired individual I’m downsizing in both size and expences. Please keep working and hopefully more people will consider your tiny homes for an economic and earth friendly residences.

    Thanks, Brad. You know I hate to sell her. I know this sounds trite, but I hope someone will appreciate her as much as the beautiful little house deserves.
