Yes, it has been a while in making, but safe in the womb called Manifestation Bay. There are many hands that have worked to make this new Tiny Texas Organic Cottage materialize and it will hold their energy embodied in this form for a century or more I hope. This will join our collection of sustainably built houses and cottages that will hopefully inspire millions of others to use the treasure at our fingertips left to us by our ancestors, the finest resources ever taken from the face of Mother Earth, from the trees that stood hundreds of feet tall for nearly a thousand years, to the hardware cast with coal pulled from the mines by kids of only 12 years of age.

It looks like a ship being built to go out to sea, and it is in a way, an organic craft that will carry the owner into a dream world that can not be reached in a Shitrock box with vinyl windows, carpet over concrete, hardiplank siding, and fiberglass all over inside the walls and ceilings.
Join me in the adventure of a lifetime, the empowerment of the body, mind, and Spirit for the next great transition of our world, a colder version that will test and clean the planet in ways few can yet imagine. Afterward, the life skills to survive, grow food, and thrive in the new world will be our focus instead of the TV. Welcome to the future today, created out of the past knowledge, cycles, and thus preparedness of the few you can learn from as the mass media crumbles and the curtain of Oz is opened.
