Win This Rustic Tiny Texas House

Brad Kittel of Tiny Texas Houses has been running an essay contest since July 3rd.

I wish I would have known about this earlier, but you still have until August 3rd 2011.

Either way you’ll really enjoy checking out the house, whether or not you participate.

The grand prize winner wins a 10′ x 12′ completely unique home with a 6′ x 11′ porch.

This House’s History

  • 125 year old Cedar posts on the front porch
  • Exterior siding are 2×8 Long Leaf Pine from the 1800’s
  • Some of the corrugated metal dates back to 1900’s

The shower has a river rock floor, walls covered with 100 year old roof shingles.

Design and Space

Downstairs there’s a full shower, toilet and sink. In the living area there’s room for seating.

There’s a kitchenette with a sink and under the counter refrigerator.

The upstairs area can hold either two twin beds or one queen plus room for a small desk and a closet.

    Now that house looks like a hill billy house. lol call it “rustic” all you want to. If you want to get peoples attenion you have to have something they want. While it may be a fine “Tiny Texas House”. Most people will not bother. Its not the cool good looking house on wheels they see all over the internet. With the look and all. I would give it away as a “play house”. And befriending people on “YouTube”. Thats just silly.

    I need a place at my sons that I can move when in-laws get to be too much. I love the tiny houses. I am disabled and want to eliminate much of my baggage. This is so awesome out of recycle which I am very into. I use recycle and freecycle sites all the time here in Oregon.

      Thanks, Michelle! Wishing you the best.
