Isn’t she a beauty? The Tiny Texas “Worker House” has been tormenting me for almost six months now since I entered the essay contest in the very first round. Brad Kittel of Tiny Texas Houses created the contest to raise awareness for “pure salvage building” a term for building new structures out of previously discarded materials.
Mr. Kittel’s essay contest was originally slated to end in September, when he would give away the home provided he had 1,000 entries. For reasons that are completely beyond me, that number wasn’t reached, however, he has decided to give away the home in December regardless of the number of entries.
For all you tiny house lovers who are already composing your essay in your head, here is the most important part, the latest count puts your competition at only 350 essays. You heard me. I’ve been on auditions with worse odds than that.
All you have to do is write 300 words or less explaining, “How would owning this Tiny Texas house inspire you?” Include that along with a $50 entry fee and you are eligible for an extra special Christmas or Hanukkah present!
Obviously, the tiny house obsessed part of me doesn’t really want any more entries- I want to win after all! But Brad’s gesture of giving the home away despite reaching his goal is inspiring. He is so committed to sharing pure salvage building he is even considering more essay contests in the future.
