Even Tiny Homes are Bigger in Texas! Say Hello to the ‘Cowboy Cabin’

By  | 

On a beautiful part of Southeast Texas land sits a rustic cabin which looks like it has been there for ages. Although its rusted tin roof and weathered siding might give the impression that it is decades in age, the cabin in its entirety is not. It was placed there only a handful of years ago following its construction just 50 miles away at the Tiny Texas Houses workshop.

If you’re unfamiliar with their concept and mission, Tiny Texas Houses designs and constructs small cottages and cabins using almost 100 percent salvaged materials they acquire through the deconstructing of old barns and homes. Although the water piping and wiring are new (due to health and safety reasons), the company has identified that more than 95 percent of the materials that go into their homes, such as the “Cowboy Cabin,”is reclaimed.

One of their larger projects, the “Cowboy Cabin” has a 336-square-foot footprint. Its kitchen is at the center of the ground floor (approximately) and is open to the living room space. It features a fold-down table which is attached to the back of the counter space in the kitchen. With the screened porch, there is also the added option of being able to dine outdoors, at the back of the cabin. The washroom is in back of the kitchen, featuring a shower which is lined using roofing tiles that have found a new purpose. And, the vintage sink has separate hot and cold-water faucets.

This cozy “Cowboy Cabin” has a loft for sleeping (both ends), with their ladders being skillfully incorporated into the kitchen and living room shelving. Aside from the cabin itself, however, the property that it sits on is home to a lakeside pavilion, allowing for outdoor dining and entertaining. The plans for the “Cowboy Cabin” are available for purchase on the Tiny Texas House website, along with other great options they have designed and built for other Texas customers!
