Tiny Victorian Foundation Cottage with Loft Above Kitchen

Most of the time I like to show you tiny houses on wheels but I also have a passion for other small spaces, like this 252-square-foot tiny victorian cottage built on a foundation by Tiny Texas Houses.

I think a home like this is a great option if you’re interested in living tiny but know that something slightly bigger would work better for you.

Maybe it’s because you want to share the house with somebody, you want to keep some more of your goodies, or you just enjoy a little more spaciousness.

Did you know that Brad Kittel builds his tiny homes of nearly 100% recycled & reclaimed materials that he repurposes, gathers and restores himself? Pretty amazing if you ask me.

I like how the interior is a lot like most little houses on wheels. It’s got the kitchen with an upstairs sleeping loft. Only here you get to enjoy the feeling of more space thanks to a bigger house and the open/vaulted ceilings.

I encourage to tour the rest of this awesome little house below:

Background on this Tiny Texas House

This was one of the first dozen houses we built. It was a 12′ x 21′ house with a big kitchen, nice spacious bath with a tub view through the pastures. This high Victorian included refrigerator, stove with oven, and nice clawfoot tub besides a nice loft with two twin beds for the grandsons. It was moved out to a ranch in Stockdale, Texas nearly five years ago. (Source)

How would you feel about living in this little cottage? Given the right location, I think I could really enjoy it.

    Talk about “Walking The Straight & Narrow Path!” LOL 😉

    Absolutely-tootly adorable. The bathroom is a “keeper” and I adore all the other finishes that this person added to his home. If I were young & spry, I could see myself living in this as a single person. Not too sure about the need for the video, as it barely covered anything else that the photos didn’t share.~shrug~

    Regarding the VERY straight and narrow paved sidewalk to the home, from a design perspective, if it flared out to a nice half-moon pad or even was expanded to encompass the front of the home, it wouldn’t seem so restrictive in size. But, that’s the architect in me talking and what I’d recommend to a client if I were selling the job. Other than that, flawless application! <3

    Hats off to this builder, beautiful work. I could sit on his page all day just absorbing the ideas he puts into these homes.

    I loved the exterior. I prefer lighter wood/paint inside so that it feels light and airy (also I’m not too “keen” on spiders and want to see them before I stand next to them!)
    I love your tiny house news letters, Alex. Check out UK style beach huts, I think you’d like them.

    Not my cup of tea, detail inside is nice but a lot to up keep. Could use some upgrades and some fresh paint on the outside.

      Darcy, it is supposed to look like that. These Texas Tiny Houses are built from architectural salvage and are meant to recall an era of weather beaten homes under the burning Texas skies. http://tinytexashouses.com/

      Those details ARE the upgrades.

    I love what is shown, but I wish they would shown more than just the bathroom and kitchen – what is the living and sleeping space like? How do you get up to the loft, i.e., ladder or more conventional stairs? Even a floor plan would help to visualize the layout.

    Cute but would like to see more. The kitchen looks great to me tho!!!

    What IS the vertical “striped” material used on the walls and cabinets????
