Building it Green: Wood from Deconstructed Homes

It's simply wonderful, and a total joy to watch our tiny house as it approaches completion.

The wood being used to build the cabinetry, window trim, the ship ladder to the loft space,   countertops, shelves and all other interior and exterior details is longleaf pine, reclaimed   from a tear-down, slated for demolition due to highway expansion through Luling, Texas.   Estimated age of the wood  is approximately 100 years.


Most satisfying is knowing that every last bit of wood, windows, doors, fixtures, and flooring comes from very old houses gently deconstructed, rather than being sent to a landfill or waste incinerator.

The beauty, richness, and character of this energy-filled wood will absolutely jump to life once rubbed with Tung Oil, the final step prior to our taking delivery, around January 15.

Brad Kittel and his crew at Tiny Texas Houses ( is doing an amazing service for us, and for our planet.
