Are you feeling it yet?


What about now?


Well, Tiny Texas Houses is hosting an essay contest titled,  “How would owning this Tiny Texas House inspire you?”

All you do is write 300 words or less about how it would inspire you and pay $50.00.  What?  I have to pay!  Yes….but you get a copy of the blueprints for free and something else, an e-book I think…

What can you win:  The Essay House (swoon, how cute!)

Grand Prize: “Tiny Texas Worker House” as described and pictured on the website:, a 10’ x 12’ house with sleeping loft, shower, bath, kitchenette, and front porch. This house is built from 99% Pure Salvage and well insulated to create a cozy hideaway or home for the winner whose creative words and inspiration lead the judges to pick their essay for the Grand Prize.

The Grand Prize has a value of $38,000.00

All entrants will also receive a copy of the plans and a materials list that will be available at a later date for those who want to build a house like this someday.


After revitalizing Bessie, I love the idea of using salvaged materials to build a small house!
