We offer an amazing guided tour at Tiny Texas Houses! The tour is run at 2:00pm every Saturday. You will get to experience from outside and inside the Tiny Texas Houses here in our village! That includes the following tiny houses:
- Red Mascot (the house on the cover of Lloyd Kahn’s definitive book, Tiny Homes: Simple Shelter)
- The Teeny Gingered Swan
- Helen’s Heaven & the White Swan (currently both under construction)
- The Vicki 1 and the Vicki 2
- The Blue Moon
- The Kidd
- Temple Tantra
If we have time, you’ll see Bear House and the Bath House too. You will also see the permaculture infrastructure we’ve started here on our 43 acres to support our Tiny Texas Village, here in Salvage, Texas. We’re digging a huge pond, have an underground cavern with a bentonite clay springs that stays about 65-68 degrees year round, and an artesian spring.
The cost is only $20 per person. In the guided tour you’ll learn why we salvage, what we salvage and how you can build a beautiful, strong, healthy home out of what was once someone’s trash. We hope to see you soon!
