A view from the top of the mound, looking out and down the driveway which we are building up for another level of Salvage Mountain.  When finished, it will be the tallest man made object with structure on it from Salvage, Tx to Houston.

As we move the dirt and create the space for water to gather for the crops to grow down the road, we are also building a mountain of sorts where on we will meditate, exercise, and have an incredible view of the Big Texas Sky.

Some of the areas are laid out for the houses already and others will be laid out later, but we can easily fit 40 houses on this side of the 43 acres so as to have many lived in full time but most available for overnight stays and longer visits for seminars or internships as we grow a village and bringing together the knowledge of many for the benefit of everyone by creating a model of what we could do if we set our mind to growing sustainable villages, towns, and doing it with Tiny Houses and 95% Pure Salvage Living.
