Some may not know that I quit taking orders to build houses to ship around Texas and the country a couple years ago to work my way out of running a business anymore. I have since concentrated on the task of creating a model village environ using Organic Cottages, a natural setting to stay in the tiny houses so as to feel them and come to know if you could downsize in this way. It is also to show people who want to learn, how to create a future, home, career, or passion as a Functional Salvage Artist that they can create House Art that can change people’s lives. This Easter Weekend some of our favorite people came to visit, sleep in the houses in Salvage, Texas, and help create more.
It is the chance to be with the kids instead of have them be gone away, on their phones, watching TV, or going to the movies. This is the path to open doors to empowerment, family businesses that will bind them together during the days ahead instead of tearing them apart with work, school, and debts required to live in the Mass Media Commerical reality, having so many things to distract you that you forget about the living of life itself.
Savor the moment, the chance to be with your children and teach them while they are young, in the formative years where you can do more than the schools, more than the TV, and much more if you love them and spend time with them. Rick found many satisfying moments, bonding with his children that you can see, a focus in their attention and a desire to work on creating a really cool house like none other in the world.
This is the fuel that I wish to use for igniting a generation of Functional Salvage Artists who will build Chicken Coops that will feed their kids, houses that will provide income through sale or renting them out over the years, for the kids to grow into, take with them one day, and support or house the next generation. We are the Baby Boomer generation 72,000,000 strong (or in poor physical condition depending on who you look at). We are the last ones to be able to pass on this knowledge lest it be lost by the third generation that does not respect it. History has proven this is how you change a culture is to eliminate the memories of these lifeskills that free us from the need for government, for big box stores, banks, and the other chains that bind us.
We have life skills, a respect for the work and wisdom of our elders, of organic foods and methods to grow healthier than most of the people in America, with exercise, and a simpler more pleasurable life.
Design Eclectica using Space Magic methods for interiors and exteriors that defy the schools of Architecture today that go for the Modern Building material at any cost approach, regardless of the outgassing, environmental cost, built in obsolescence, or lack of due dilligence to insure the people who live in homes will not die from the toxins inside of them. We are in a different age that our ancestors lived in where quality is not as important as price to many, but for those who care, this is a path that an artist can thrive in, as well as his family and friends.
Thank you to Danielle for the many pictures she took at this Easter Weekend Retreat for some friends of Tiny Texas Houses, Pure Salvage Living, and the place I call Salvage, Texas.
I hope to be able to grow it into a place I can leave behind to people like these who want to make a positive difference in the world by doing the things needed for that to happen, by opening the door to a new world for their kids that few will know if we do not grow this Renaissance around the world soon for the best of the past is being thrown into the dump, in fact, 50% of landfills are building materials, and much of that could have built homes like this but the big box stores and TV Advertisers would not get rich. This is import free!
Want to escape the Matrix of debt for a big house or apartment living? Consider a new path of Salvaging your lifes lessons, downsizing your responsibility to others in the form of life hours spent for cash, and start savoring your passions for living each day, creating your future, and sharing it with friends, family, and those you meet who are meant to be in your new life of thriving while living in the paradise you too can create.
It only takes a World Uniting in a Belief that we can succeed to save it for the kids who will inherit the mess we have created in the last few hundred years. Please consider joining me in making that difference manifest sooner rather than later. Share so that more will build, salvage, and make this possible for you too!
