Tiny Texas Deluxe Homesteader Cabin - outdoors, with temp porch supports

Tiny Texas Deluxe Homesteader – in her final construction phase

This fantastic large cottage/cabin is a true architectural gem! Designed to be a full-time residence, it has all the amenities packed into a small house footprint with outstanding artistic touches. She’s built to last for your lifetime, and for generations to come – truly to become a family heirloom!

This tiny house can be the ultimate homestead or retirement cabin for your acreage; or a showpiece retail store or rental at your camp or resort, or the ultimate Bed-n-Breakfast cottage rental suite.

This lovingly handcrafted tiny house and work of art is indeed a special purchase, and the owners may decide to pull her from sale as they truly do not want to part with her – so if you are interested, please contact us immediately!

Pardon our dust in the Photos! The Homesteader cabin is in the final phase of construction at our shop. She needs her porches added on (we have a special hinging process that allows them to fold up for transport) and a bit of detail finish work done, and she’s ready to truck on down to your location. You can also have one or both porches screened or add some additional options to her final build (see Options, below).

The TTH Classic Homesteader is 252 s.f., as one large open living/dining/kitchen area room, with separate bath area and large closet/pantry area, and sleeping loft of additional approx. 250 s.f. for a total of approx. 500 s.f. under roof, excluding exterior front and back screen porches.

She is 12 ft wide by 21′ ft long and approximately 14’6″ ft high at roof peak.

She is small enough to be easily transported by semi truck to your location. She is best suited for warm climates – she’s a Texas girl born and bred for the Hill Country lifestyle.

Our Photos DO NOT do this house justice! This cottage is unbelievably awesome in person! We can shoot you a much more detailed video of her, if you’re not able to come and see her in person before you purchase!


Tiny Texas Deluxe Homesteader Cabin - stairs to loft

Tiny Texas Deluxe Homesteader Cabin – stairs to loft

The door is solid Oak wood, with an vintage wood screen door, circa 1930 in the Arts and Crafts style.

She has 6 large vintage wood windows, including 2 made of stained glass, from the early 1900’s and smaller windows from 1900 that are new old stock and have never been installed before. The casement window we used on this house is from Belgium and has gorgeous hardware that dates back over a hundred years!

Her interior walls are clad in a combination of a patchwork of antique multi-colored beadboard sporting it’s original patinae’d paint finish, and the side and loft walls are clad in 7 1/2″ wide plank Long Leaf Pine Shiplap run vertically rather than the normal horizontal direction.

The interior ceiling is tongue and groove vintage Loblolly Pine.

Her flooring is antique tongue and groove 4″ 1890’s painted Long Leaf Pine, virgin never used as floors before from a Yorktown,Texas farmhouse with T&G walls and ceilings.
We lovingly hand cleaned, scraped, laid, sanded, and oiled them to create a mix of wood and color. The subflooring and framing are all made of salvaged, vintage lumber 60-100 years old – no cheap white-wood from the big box store anywhere in this house!

Her loft is a generous 12′ x 24′ at the longest point but it narrows at an unusual angle, the only one we have done as such. The loft fits a queen, king, or two twin beds. The ceiling/head height in the loft is 6’2 1/2″.

The loft ladder is handcrafted especially for the cottage, and made of all clear (no knots) Long Leaf Pine.

There is a small loft storage area of 3′ x 7′ for a clothing/linen closet. This could be cedar lined as an additional option.

There is a built-in writing desk next to the window in the loft.

She is fully plumbed for a toilet, bathroom sink, shower, and washer/dryer unit; in addition to a kitchenette sink. No bathroom appliances or fixtures are included; the area is rough plumbed in and ready for your fixtures.

She has a kitchenette area which has electrical and plumbing roughed in; the matching kitchen cabinetry can be included for an additional fee. A kitchenette cabinet is an inexpensive upgrade — we highly recommend it and we can build it for you.

She is wired for standard residential electric, with 12 double outlets.

She also has been wired for 1 ceiling light/fan and 2 front porch lights and 1 back porch light. Fixtures have not yet been chosen; we can assist you in finding vintage ones that fit this style.

The Homesteader’s exterior is clad in vintage 1×12 Long Leaf Pine siding in a board-and-batten style, with a lower wainscot siding crafted of vintage corrugated tin. This is a rare tin in a “Baby Corrugated” width that is seldom found in Texas for some reason. It is thick, durable and looks great.

Her roof is vintage tin metal panels in a corrugated style from Chicken houses in Texas.

She comes with one full-length 6′ wide covered porch (which fold down for transport). and One back porch that could be screened in as an easy upgrade. As shown in the photos, the porches do not show their final vintage turned porch columns only the temporary supports.

OPTIONAL UPGRADES, for an additional fee.

• Matching Stair steps up to porch with handrail can be crafted.

• Full kitchen finish out, with custom cabinetry and sink. We do not provide the refridgerator or sink faucet fixtures.

• Full bathroom finish out, with sink and shower and matching custom cabinetry. We will provide the size spaces to fit toilet, washer/dryer and refridgerators of your choice, but not include the appliainces in the price or shipping (adds too much weight). (We can provide sink fixtures, shower walls, pans, shower fixtures, and old plumbing fixtures.) We do not supply appliances, new lighting fixtues, new faucets, and fans.

• One or Both Porches can be fully screened in with an additional exterior screen door added. Especially in the south, this is a recommended upgrade to truly use the full potential of this cottage! Screening the 6′ x 19′ and 6′ x 12′ porches would add an additional large 186 s.f. of indoor/outdoor living space!

    I have built two newer versions of this style and will likely build more as I like the volume of space and the feel of it. I am only taking 3 more custom orders this year and then we will be creating a waiting list in case we decide to take more custom orders from new clients next year.

    Each is a piece of art that I hope will last as a home for a couple centuries. If you have not been to visit and walk through you should while all three of these originals are still on site. We will start shipping them in the next couple of weeks.

      Hi Cameron – yes, since every house is custom designed, all items are changeable. Our houses are designed to be moved by commercial trailer to the site and are set on peirs. We have re-moved houses for clients several times. However, they are not designed to be moved by the homeowner; only by professional house movers.

    I have been researching small pre-fab cabins for a vacation home in the Poconos on the east coast, and I have to say your work is absolutely gorgeous! They are truly a work of art. Have you transported all the way to the northern east coast before? I know the transport fee would probably be cost prohibitive, but I truly like your work more than any other options I’m finding.

    I wish they had some pages with the models of homes, the floor plans and the price range for bare price, shipping price and approx installation price. Too many questions are unanswered. That usually means that you have to contact the company and go through a hard sell process to get the info. I would revamp the site. I am looking to buy in the next 4-6 months.

  10. Beautiful little homes and buildings. I can see many applications for these from simple living, quiet living quarters, a nice getaway cabin, small lake home, mountain home, little community homes, hunting or fishing retreat…the possibilities are many!

    wow James Corey Goode, you’re pretty demanding of a little company that’s focused on salvaging old materials and crafting a beautiful, functional product. I haven’t got any affiliation with them but it looks like they’ve made a total of just a few houses to date, you probably shouldn’t expect a fully formed website, nor should you expect them to churn out multiple exact same houses.

    I think these houses are gorgeous and look like a really special addition/option to a homesite. Thanks for sharing pictures, and for your dedication!!

    I love your homes, so much packed into such a little space.

    I am from Massachusetts we own a 300 year old house there. We are trying to save it but we are having difficulty. It is an old farm house with Chestnut wainscoting and wide pine floors. Where do you go to get your material?

    My question is HOW ABOUT INSULATION? How well insulated for heat & cold are these houses??? I cannot tell from your pics that the walls are insulated? Do you use double or triple paned windows??? How about the ceilings? Just curious.

    March 1, 2013
  14. Sheryl

    Can it be insulated for cold climates? I am also interested in how much it costs. I am looking to downsize (this definitely fits that bill!) for retirement in the Pacific Northwest where it is cold and rainy.
