Tiny Texas Houses Turns Garbage Into Gorgeous Long Lasting Rustic Homes

This post contains affiliate links.

As most of you already probably know, Tiny Texas Houses uses 99% pure salvage materials to build their beautiful rustic homes.

For six years now, they’ve been turning what would otherwise be considered garbage into one-of-a-kind homes. In fact, they’ve built more than 60 of these gems as of today and each time they continue perfecting the use of space.

Each one is unique, sustainable, efficient, and can certainly be considered a piece of art. And everything that goes into building these simple shelters is recycled besides electrical, plumbing, and Icynene spray foam insulation.

They can be lived in full time since they’re all designed with a bathroom, kitchen, and a sleeping loft. Each home has a life expectancy of at least 50 years so you can be assured of their quality.

Brad Kittel, founder, is one of the people at the forefront of the tiny house movement with his mission to help folks live simpler, healthier lives through his homes. And if that wasn’t enough, he’s also contributing to the environment by creating new homes with little to no impact on Earth.

Kittel is proving that you don’t have to buy an expensive, low quality new house to be happy. Even better, his company is now focusing on educating the public on how to do the very same thing he’s been doing for the last six years.

With 40 acres of land in Texas, they are now accepting volunteers to come stay on the property to learn how to build high quality homes using reclaimed materials. And with over 200,000 square feet of warehouse space filled with materials, this is a great place to gain that experience.

Their warehouse is inhabited by materials from all over the country just waiting to be reutilized into gorgeous high quality rustic homes that will serve people and families for decades to come. I encourage you to visit Tiny Texas Houses and Pure Salvage Living right now to learn more if you’re interested in doing so.

    Good videos- for my off-grid cabin I salvaged windows and doors, recycled fence board and used rough sawn lumber. The stove, fridge, water pump, shower, water tank, lights, cabinets are all recycled from an old camp trailer. The entire cabin cost $2000.

    There is no reason to pay for new materials when we have so much recyclable materials avalable and it saves you a ton of money and creates a unique home.

    This is an excellent thing. This is how a good steward does things. Well done.

    Alex, so glad I found your website! You give me hope for one day being able to own my own place again one day. We got caught up in the ‘bigger is better’ idea but will be going into foreclosure in the near future. Losing everything we’ve worked for during the last 40 yrs. I love the idea of repurposing and hope to be able to have a ‘salvaged’ house like Brad talks about in Texas Tiny House. Thanks so much and may God continue to bless your efforts.

    I as well could have used this long ago when I was a much younger man.
    I did allot of renovating on an older style mid 18th century farm house and turned my personal space into a single mans paradise.
    No whining no worries no electrical working out side of the renovations i have done myself shy of light bulbs most of it if not almost all of it was located and gathered and remade into something greater.
    And yes I admit to being a pallet addict lol.
