Rustic Texas Guest House

Today I’m showing you something a bit different. It might not be a place where you would want to live in full time. Although I would happily live in this now 1000 square foot structure.

It is a 14-foot-round grain silo Amy Kleinwachter found right down the road from her La Grange, Texas home. A home that was built entirely out of salvaged materials.

Amy goes all over the world looking for unusual architectural salvage for her company, Old World Antieks.

The Silo Home:

When she came across this silo, she knew it would be the perfect guest house to place on her 10 acres of land.

The completed 1,000-square-foot structure now includes a front porch and a bed/bath extension.

Living Area:

An old champagne crate with a grain sack cushion is a footrest for a pair of mismatched leather chairs.

Office Area:

An office space has been created from an old vintage sign topped with glass. A vintage stool is there for seating.

The Bedroom:

The bedroom is somewhat feminine with its neutral bed linens. It is a small but adequate place for guests to stay overnight.

Bathroom:

The bathroom is just as primitive in style as the rest of the guest house. Lots of distressed wood and scratched up architectural salvage.

Bathroom Wall Decor:

The bathroom wall decor is an old vintage sign. And the seating is a chair that would probably look just right in a cottage garden space.

Entryway/Living Space:

This little area serves as either an entryway or living space.

Metal Awnings:

Ornate Headers:

Front Porch:

The front porch allows entry into the silo house. A roof was added and provides a cozy theme to the primitive space.

Obviously chickens roam the land and possibly greet guests who come to stay there.

  1. Brenda,
    I have this Country Living issue saved. Super charming house, as a guest house. To live there full time would trigger my OCD; while I love rustic, antiquated items, little goes a long way.

  2. They say one man’s junk is another man’s treasure…this is a very clever way to use all these materials to make a most inviting place!! How cute!!

  3. I think it looks so cute and is a very creative idea, but I would be afraid to be inside of it if there was a storm.

  4. I, too, love everything about this house. I could definitely live in this delightful place.

  5. This is fantastic. What a fun get away to stay there. I love that you are featuring spaces once again.
