Builder Brad Kittel makes these Texas "Tiny Houses" from 95% recycled materials. The only new elements of the home are electric systems, plumbing, and insulation. Unlike modern prefab mini-homes, each one is unique and reflects the style of its salvaged parts...

Based in Gonzales, Texas, Kittel's company specializes in scrap materials. This one-of-a-kind 170 square foot home includes a loft bed, single bath, and mini kitchen.
The homes are built on pier-and-beam foundations, and they're portable. Porches are bolted on for fairly easy disassembly.
Buyers can choose the components of their homes from Kittel's inventory of second-hand doors, windows, paneling, and trim.
