So all Saturdays 11-1 and on Wednesday the 19th of October will be the tour days so please call to confirm that I will have room for you. We generally cap the tour at 20 so as to keep the crowd moving. Depending on the turnout for the month and finding someone else to do the bulk of the tours soon, we may not have more than two tours a month for the remainder of the year, if at all. (Tired of repeating myself)
This series of pictures shows much of the process and benefit so that those who want to create something similar or would be interested in getting the plans, building materials in Pure Salvage vintage lumber, and manifest your own. To that end we will offer classes to build stair/ladders with storage, bar, and other great spaces underneath if enough people show interest.
My “Grave to Cradle philosophy” fuels a transformation of our society using our human energy, literally our hands and minds, our soul's energy to creatively transform trash to new treasures we will call homes, that will be loved and lived in for generations yet to be born. No other method of building organic houses is as sustainable or low cost on the front end for energy as well as energy efficient for living in for a century.
Materials and a place to put the 50 houses and 50 Vendor spaces in the market. Those who are selected to receive this gift from Darby, SalvageGuru. Yes there are strings attached a they like to say on Earth. Spiritual and Human Energy go into creating the Tiny Texas Houses and Organic Cottages so it is important that the right people are brought into the imaginary town of Salvage, Texas as it continues to form out of the mists of imagination.
The First of the Fall series of Lecture/tours starts this Saturday, September 3rd, 2016. Schedule for the next series of tours and lectures.
In preparation for the guests who may want to get a chance to swim a bit, we found a older pool boy to take care of things. Figured we would take a short video to be sure you approved of using him for our helper in exchange for a bit of modeling and acting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joyP6p4UPeQ&feature=youtu.be
Yes, one weekend tours for August at this time. We may have one lecture / tour August 20th if at least ten people sign up for it but I have found our hot summer days don't lend themselves to big crowds. We may continue tours in September though the Air B&B will be operating so those who stay do get to see the houses in the meantime, but the private tours are now $100 when we do take appointments but no stop ins without reservations. As you may or may not know, I have stopped building custom houses for people to take away to other places.
We have offered seminars to teach how to do this before and not had a big response. We will have one more soon, and it will be the last I suspect as we reconsider having any more seminars for either building or salvaging in the future. Over the last decade I have been relatively unsuccessful at finding the people to join me in this adventure, to carry on the creation of these revolutionary Organic Cottages, the manifestation of the Pure Salvage Outposts as citizen Co-ops where people can gather the materials, store them, join together to build houses under shelter in common spaces, using common tools, and then a Co-op trailer that will ship them affordably to villages and places that will allow people to live in them for the rest of their lives.
Ondrea Duncan is the artist and will be offering custom signage on vintage woods like you see here as part of the new product line under her wing. Want to see more about staying in one of the houses? Check us out on the Air BnB site by looking for Tiny Texas Houses, Luling, Texas
Organic Cottages are a trend I think you will be hearing more about as we are forced to delineate between the idea of Tiny Houses on Wheels which the TV shows have made popular and the tiny houses that are…
