Reclaimed Space is a small house builder in Austin, Texas. They specialize in creating factory built homes using reclaimed building materials on the outer facades and all new material for the structural framing and roof. Before the house is brought by truck to the building site all construction is complete including insulation, wiring, and plumbing. A foundation has also been prepared prior to delivery so when the truck arrives the house is simply lowered and attached. Read more at Jetson Green and Reclaimed Space.

If we could start over on our tiny house, this is what I would want it to look like.
If I didn`t have the house that I have now, I would gladly consider one of these homes.
Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this blog. It’s simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you have done a excellent job with this. Additionally, the blog loads very quick for me on Safari. Superb Blog!
LOVE your work!!!
I know of someone in Austin who has a 100+ yr old home on property which is going to be sold to commercial developers. They will just bulldoze this old place and I hate the thought of that! Do you know of people who will buy the home for the materials and deconstruct it?
Yes!, I plan on building my tiny house with reclaimed materials as well. Love this one.
We are building a Tiny House and definitely will be using mostly the reclaimed pieces to create a wood home both inside and out. Despite our differences in Sq ft, we need 2bed/1+baths, large living room, plenty of windows, loft, high ceilings creating enough head space for loft. I want either an A-frame or a partial A-frame to have a natural contemporary look with a patio and small fenced yard for our dog. Kitchen needs to be a decent size, a small area for computer/printer and office supplies. Would like some sort of wall/door space from bedrooms in case the one awake can still use TV or be up and about. Under bottom floor needs to have storage space, the steps to loft (hopefully a bedroom) need to be halfway closed using wood that will carry small storage space for EVERYTHING one needs and this same idea can be used in bedrooms along walls for clothes, shoes, bath supplies, household supplies, etc. Wood is so perfect for not only the outside but can create more room for all things I just listed on the inside! And with windows bringing light, the indoor wood should be light colored and shiny with some darker pieces to create a unique space of “artwork” from a variety of nooks and crannies. Plenty of space can be made for kitchen cupboards when they can also hide under and around a table for meals. That could also create the space needed for an “office” space. I need wall space for few things. One wall needs to hold our 65″ TV and we’ve a few large pieces of artwork; those can also go in bedrooms depending on wall space. Another need is small space, which can be made under, around or inside somewhere, for books, cds, movies. Under the beds we need to be made drawers, 3 to 6 on each side to hold clothing, shoes, travel apparel, items and the “whatevers” in life. I just saw in Pinterest a wide and tall perfect pantry-like door that when closed could look like a wall! Of course this could and would probably not be as wide as it looks but the IDEA is there. The bathroom (s) need room. We’re not young and my balance and disabilities require enough space to move. The shower needs a sort of space for me to bend over, lean down and up and over. And very important is a level coming out of one wall that I could put my feet on. I’ve seen many truly well made baths in these homes that make you see it and wonder how can it look so big? The sink needs to be long to accommodate 2 people to use if needed and the bath counter needs enough space for 2 people along with storage underneath and all wall space available should be used for storage; HOWEVER, I want a builder that can accomplish a look with wood, metal pieces or reclaimed iron, ceramic, etc to leave people feeling they just saw the most amazing and unique bath. Ever. I’ve lots of ideas, most because my head is full of them and memory from the shows I’ve seen made me glue these ideas into what I’m looking for. So, who is going to show me they are exactly what I’m looking for and have MANY tricks and amazing ideas to make it all work without a worry when it’s done? This will be our last home we buy and live in, the last and most inexpensive place we ever lived in and we plan on growing old there with dentures falling out and minds that are stronger than our bodies. Oh, make sure my builder/contractor comes with a wild sense of humor.
