I was excited to have an email from Victor Summers from Simple Shelter Texas about one of his latest small rustic cabins.

He calls it an eco-retreat because it sits on 40 acres off the grid in the San Luis Valley in south-central Colorado.

So yes, there are amazing views of the Sangre de Cristro Mountains from the cabin.

Victor asked me to let you know that the cabin, along with the property, is up for sale for $275,000.

But if you tell him you saw this post he’ll reduce the price to $225,000. So tell him Alex, from TinyHouseTalk.com sent you if you happen to be interested.

Today I’ll introduce you to Victor and his Simple Shelter Texas company. He has turned building small spaces into an art by using recycled materials and his creativity.

Here’s a quote from his website:

Beautifying the world – one backyard at a time That is my motto and my mission! My name is Victor Summers and I build one-of-a-kind projects, mostly out of wood and some imagination. I have been recycling building materials for years, since before it was cool to be green. When designing I plan carefully to minimize waste and keep materials costs down. I love to design and create, but I appreciate a well-designed and engineered product in kit form and am happy to provide expertise in siting and assembly if you have fallen in love with a prefabricated structure that you have seen online. Also, some of the backyard buildings seen online can be easily duplicated locally for a much more reasonable price. So if you have an idea and can’t quite find what you want, or if you browse my portfolios and get inspired by something you see here, contact me and we’ll talk about how to make it happen!
