Rafter B Tiny Homes: Big Texas Style and Hearts for Veterans

Named after the cattle brand used to mark the family livestock, Rafter B Tiny Homes are the epitome of Texas style—without being the size of Texas.

Rafter B Tiny Homes is based out of Bluff Dale, Texas.

Owned by Gerald Barton and J.J. Barton, Rafter B Tiny Homes is located in Bluff Dale, Texas south of Fort Worth. The family-run business builds and sells several models of tiny homes of various sizes. They also rent out their tiny homes and a few classic sheep wagons at their retreat.

The New Beginning model was the company’s first design.

The New Beginning model is 343 square feet with two sleeping lofts. The roomy space includes a full bathroom and kitchen, storage stairs up to the main loft and contemporary, yet Western Texas details. The New Beginning also has a gable roof, large windows, granite countertops, and built-in seating.

The Homestead model has vintage, farmhouse touches.

The Homestead model is a simple design that is reminiscent of a farmhouse. It is 192 square feet on the main floor and 72 square feet in the one loft. An additional loft can be added if necessary. The Homestead features vintage touches, awning windows, and a built-in bench.

Each home comes with a full bathroom and kitchen.

Rafter B also goes the extra mile when it comes to quality and certifications. Each home has been inspected and certified by Pacific West Tiny Homes. The facility is also regularly inspected. Pacific West is composed of licensed structural, mechanical, electrical, and forensic engineers who test for quality assurance and manufactured building components.

Along with their quality builds, Rafter B is supportive of their local veterans. Every year, the company builds at least one tiny house to donate to a veteran or a homeless member of their community.
