Gingered Swan Tiny Texas House

This is the Gingered Swan Tiny Texas House.

The Gingered Swan practically drips gingerbread trim and details. We were on a happy Victorian-house building spree and Ta-Da … Gingered Swan! Enjoy a wrap-around porch, functional balcony, & sitting area in the loft. We love gingerbread!

    WOW! that’s the coolest little joint I’ve seen in a while. Must say I half expected to see a foto of a saloon girl standing on that balcony but that just means it’s done right! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Avatar ROSEE

    I am not sure how I feel about this one! Had to look it over several times to get some idea of the design or color theme and still can’t come up with a positive comment. Sorry!

    • Avatar Debra Johnson

      I agree with you Rosee. I do not find anything about this tiny that is appealing to me. Although, I do like the fact that it is all reclaimed materials. I just think that it is not my style, but I know there are people that would live in it. I just cannot see anything in it. I too am trying to find something positive…….but nothing. I too am sorry. I guess I like a little more modern than this. Also, I like on wheels so I can take off when the notion hits.

      • Avatar Janet

        I agree with Rosee and Debra. I feel the reclaimed wood looks to old and weathered – will it last? Instead of trying to mesh the pieces, it looks like a mish mash of a reclaimed piece found here and one there. However, reclaimed material is hard to find, and when you do – take it! He went to great lengths to make this house his home and that’s most important.

          I think a lot of people appreciate the ‘rustic’ appearance of this tiny house but, like the others above, it doesn’t appeal to me either. However, I LOVE the house and with a little tidying up and painting and decorating I do believe it could be a favourite for many. It wouldn’t take much and really does already have a lot of architectural charm… it’s just a mess right now.

    • Avatar Brent

      I have to agree with the other comments here. It’s just one step too “abandoned” for my taste. I think that kitchen puts a lot of people off. A decent coat of paint in places and some throw rugs though and it would turn from abandoned to eclectic though.

        Always a fine line between rustic and abandoned ๐Ÿ™‚ — Tiny House Talk Team

    WOW, these places need to be featured on ANY show that calls itself “tiny” anythingโ€ฆ freakin’ masterpiece they are!

    I half expected to see a saloon girl on that balcony as I scrolled down!

  • Avatar two crows

    Omg! I am in love! Who built this? Can I persuade the crew to drop down to Florida? Please?
    The stairs arrangement was brilliant – – tucked away taking up minimal space yet they look to be fully functional. AND they include storage. A good spot for a pantry?
    Also love the inclusion of reclaimed materials.
    And quaint.
    Checks all my boxes.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie

      I loved it too! I think it was just a DIY project though so I don’t know if they’d build you one too! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • I like the simple randomness, of the materials, the layout of the space, has a small cottage that has it all, there is also a terrace on the
    first floor and a porch on the ground floor. It is rustic but clean,
    simple but whit character.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie

      Yes the randomness adds the charm! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Ida James

    Very unique. no real design scheme… rustic perhaps… utilitarian? it seems roomy even if its a tiny home. ๐Ÿ™‚ beauty is in the eye of the beholder???

  • Avatar Joanna Chanin

    I love a rustic look. It does have the look of an old saloon but that’s part of the charm.

  • Avatar Sue Roberson

    This is so darn cute!

  • Just love it! Screams TEXAS. Agree with Jim. Would have liked to see more detail of kitchen and bathroom area. Great sized bedroom
    Well done! Can just see myself on the rocker, watching the garden grow.

  • I love that you recycled and reused those blue kitchen cabinets and surfaces. The bad is that if you didn’t put some coating over that deteriorating old paint, you are likely making toxic lead dust every time you open them. And letting it fly where you prepare food. Lead dust is toxic and can cause irreversible, neurological damage, especially to kids under 5. Kids are not chewing on woodwork; their putting their hands with floor dust in their mouths. Lead poisoning has serious, irreversible side effects for adults, too.

    This house is adorable!

  • I built better club houses when I was a kid… Why the hell would I want to spend my good hard earned on a dump like this, I would probably find a rattle snake making a nest in my boot in the morning… I’m sorry I like rustic not relic… !

    • Avatar Eric

      “I would probably find a rattle snake making a nest in my boot in the morningโ€ฆ”

      and pray tell, would that be a “bad” thing???? rg&dfc

  • Avatar Barbara Cahill

    Outside is adorable. The interior distressed wood look put me off. Love the staircase tucked out of the way, yet adding storeage. Too bad its not mobile…

  • Love the asymmetrical “Western” movie set exterior. But just random use of recycled wood in the interior is a common mistake many tiny house designers make. There are other ways to make that statement without a confusion of color. Also a huge waste of potential storage space here and there; also a common mistake. Still hold that a full-sized kitchen is not necessary. Take a look at UK kitchens. Love that it’s not on wheels.

      I think kitchens depend on how much you love to cook, and who all you are cooking for ๐Ÿ™‚ — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Jeremy

    The important thing is that the owners like it….

      Exactly ๐Ÿ™‚ — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Canyon Man

    While I might not want this exact tiny house, I see it is what some people visualize for themselves in some degree. The styles of tiny homes will continue to evolve to meet the tastes and the pocket book of those who want to go tiny.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie

      There you go! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Darlene

    Love all of it and fantastic for ideas of recycling with charm.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie

      So true ๐Ÿ™‚ — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar jm

    I like it–but can make no further explanation than that.

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie

      Me too ๐Ÿ™‚ — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Susanne

    Kitchen? I could not tell there was a kitchen…:( and what was that small space with the purple curtain? Cute on outside, but maybe some paint like others suggested….? And inside-‘just too thrown together..not planned well, Stressful. But I always admire anyone who builds themselves!

  • Avatar Nanny M

    Why comment if you can’t find anything positive? How about the creativity, uniqueness, spacious bedroom? I like the little rustic shelves and bent wood railings. And I love the way this site shows us such a variety of manifested dreams. And some of us like each one. Can’t wait to see what surprises you send tomorrow. Thank you Tiny House Team!

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie

      Thank you so much for your positive attitude Nanny ๐Ÿ™‚ I love that! — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Nancy

    What is that “twig” lookin thing in the 5th & 6th picture? I “think” I saw some sort of bathroom, not sure tho. I’ll pass, lol…

    • Natalie C. McKee Natalie

      It’s acting as a railing to the stairs ๐Ÿ™‚ — Tiny House Talk Team

  • Avatar Vera

    This place is awesome. Love it.

      So glad ๐Ÿ™‚ — Tiny House Talk Team
