From This Porch The View Of The Blanco River Is Unmatched.  The Water Of Life Flows By As Does Our Time On This Beautiful Planet.  One Should Pause And Appreciate It Now And Then.

Heaven on Earth…. where I spent the evening…. reconsidering so much

I had a day, into the night, of working to finish Heaven, my Tiny Texas House that sits on the Blanco river after a miraculous delivery that easily could have cost me my life as the truck and trailer slid down the hill to within inches of me.

I used some antique Hemp rope to cordon the porch in this case, instead of a railing.  It will keep people from falling off in case they party to much and forget as the drop is deadly if one hits wrong.

Heaven is only 11′ x 21′ but it seems huge inside, and actually bigger from the outside with the porches to add to its girth.

Here you can see the porches on Heaven without the rope to guard the edges.

Earlier in the day, I learned as I arrived, my dear friend had separated spirit from body and moved on to the next life. It was an appropriate time to arrive and work on my version of a little Heaven on Earth made from the waste others would have thrown away.
Redemption comes in many forms.

From this porch the view of the Blanco river is unmatched.  The water of life flows by as does our time on this beautiful planet.  One should pause and appreciate it now and then.

The entrance has its stairs now, as every Heaven should, a path to reach the afterlife, in this case of salvage from a dozen homes combined.

I thought much about my dear friend who once was the “love of my life” and will always be for that type of infatuation will never happen again if I am sane. Still, regardless of how it ended, she was still dear to me and her suicide made me think hard about canceling the Kickstarter for it touches on the reasons she did what she did out of hopelessness and despair.

There should never be only one path to Heaven, but more, so that others can not be excluded by the crowds trying to get there.

Many have asked me not to give up on the Kickstarter campaign or my vision for getting 30 sets of house plans and a large book showing how others can help in the salvation of the many homes our forefathers built that could become homes for those in need now. Toxin free houses sustainably built to be energy efficient is what our whole country, our world should be aiming to do at this stage as we now have all the proof we need to know that the modern homes are killing people, making them sick, and ruining the future for our children with autism as their brain development is destroyed by chemicals they inhale, like the health of the mothers with Lupus, fibromyalgia, and cancers running rampant. We can do better.

The steps to get there are easier to climb than most people think

Once we open the door to the possibilities, you will find they are not just rich in their potential, but beautiful.

Once in the lofts you will see the places to dream of a new future are as nice as any found.

The spaces need not be large to be luxurious, especially to those who have no house or hope of one, thus the hopelessness that leads to suicides each year numbering over 50,000, just for this reason alone.... the stigma of homelessness is horrible.

The spaces need not be large to be luxurious, especially to those who have no house or hope of one, thus the hopelessness that leads to suicides each year numbering over 50,000, just for this reason alone…. the stigma of homelessness is horrible.

For that reason, for those who suffer and need the hope, the possibility of reforming their lives, of salvation in this life through salvage mining, salvage building, and the many facets that will provide income, housing, and more resources than we have left in this country using no more than human energy. We can do this for them, I can continue to be the dart board and take the verbal hits by those who do not believe that I will put all the money that comes in from these plans and books into helping the homeless, the elderly, the handicapped, and disadvantaged so that the world can be a better place… not for my personal gain. I am going to keep this open, win or lose, and hope that others will share if they can not contribute, and spread the word that there is a way out of the hopelessness, a way to get houses, though perhaps tiny, that are toxin free, will last your lifetime and more, that respect the work of 12 year olds who hauled the coal from mines that made the glass. Once upon a time, only a century or so ago, children worked as well as their dad, 352 days a year. Now we have children in other countries work to get our stuff cheap. We can do better, respect the past, and build a future that will give all a chance to escape the hopelessness, the despair, and have a home.

A tiny bath is all most people need.

A place to cook, to prepare for a family what they must have for food to survive.

This is the simple version of Heaven on Earth that we can create and make happen with human energy and Love.

I can not let the death of a friend who had no home, no car, no job, and in the end… nothing to live for in her mind except to be chastised, cast out, and at the mercy of the world. I can do better for those who need it and I commit to do so for the rest of my life.
If you can, please help me create the path that others might follow so that they may find their Heaven on Earth, before searching beyond this life, before taking their future away and leaving behind children, parents, and friends who love them, and I would hope, would have helped them if they had only known how desperate they had become.

Here is the link to the crowd funding site where 1,000 people contributing only $25 could open this door, and a few pledging more so that the world can share the riches of salvage, build homes for those that need them, and create a new path that forms houses without destroying the resources of our planet. If we do not respect our ancestors, the past 7 generations that strived to give us these gifts, what will be left for the next 7 generations except hopelessness, sickness, and strife. They, like those in need now, deserve better. Please help me help them.

Here is the link to visit and share.
