Be a Tiny-House pioneer in Spur, Texas

Reportedly, this is the only town in the USA to embrace tiny houses in a BIG way. I am imagining a little tricycle garage next to one of these tiny houses. Cool, and lots of space to ride!

    Oh wouldn’t it be nice to live in a community where the main means of transportation is pedal powered instead of raging cagers. Add in the bonus of wide open space in a little cabin & suddenly your debt load disappears, your monthly expenses shrink to almost nothing, your stress level becomes a thing of the past & you maintain a healthy lifestyle. – Only one thing missing – where’s my beach?

    I like the Idea and I have been following the Tiny House movement for some time now, and comes as no shock to me that Spur, Texas is the first town to allow Tiny Houses to be built, but they are not the only town in the US to allow tiny houses to be built.. I have been a subscriber to Tiny House Talk for a couple of years now and not to long ago they had a video on their web site that was about a town called Rockledge, here in Florida that was starting a tiny house community within their town, and even showed a Mayor and council meeting in which they passed ordinance allowing Tiny Houses to be built… I am also considering on building my own Tiny House at this time, and have been checking in to a lot of manufacturers who build them for some creative ideas as to what type Tiny House I will be building…! I am very much into recycling and using materials which are recyclable and non toxic, and will be incorporating a lot of those type materials in my new Tiny House when I build it… For some time now there has been an epidemic of shipping containers being stacked and abandoned in lots all around the country.. These are the same shipping containers that are being transported in ships across the seas of our planet for export consumer products we see on our local big box store shelves.. But once here it is common place to not send them back across the seas to their place of origin empty because of it’s expense, and the US at present does not manufacture enough export goods in order to ship them back full.. So hence they are stock piled in yards and ports all over the country left abandoned.. I want to use these containers as part of the structure for my tiny house.. They are extremely strong and I will be helping the ecology by using a couple of these containers which would otherwise become abandoned as well…! If you are thinking about building a Tiny House, I recommend you checking out the Tiny House Talk website and subscribing to their news letter. They are a great inspiration and a great help when considering building Tiny….!

    I love these small homes! Keep us posted Zack if and when you get yours going. And yes Glen, those ideas you mention are awesome. A trike and a tiny house sure speaks to me!
