Yes, finally, we are going to offer a series of weekend Salvage Building Seminars. They will last for 4-6 weeks and will take the participants through the framing of the floor to the electrical, plumbing, and finish out of a small house. We will also be using one or two weeknights for training as well, likely Wednesday and Thursday. No charge to participate to members only who will be working physically but.....
Yes this is the first of the series of blogs that will show the parts to be given away as the prize to a member at the end of March for a 300-500 words essay about “How someone is forming their dream to build an Organic Cottage of any size with the parts that they could win for mere words alone. While I am not sure which of the batch of windows and doors shown will be in the final package, this is the selection I am picking from and will include pictures of through the newsletter to members at the end of February to inspire them to write and get their submissions in.
Here are some goodies to think about.
To answer a question or two:
Here is a link to the Charter Membership and the site where membership benefits are listed as well.
This links to some other info as well.
As the month goes on we will select, perhaps with the members deciding using some forums, on which windows, doors, and parts will go into the first package.
Plans to build and ideas will evolve to help show how to manifest and design, build, and create your dream cottage in a sustainable organic fashion. 95% Pure Salvage is the highest embodied energy rating you can get in an energy efficient house that will last for a century. Better still, it will use less energy than what is embodied in the making of its parts 150 years ago, human, coal, wood, and more.
This is the perfect path to building the next generation of housing that respects the past, our planet, and our aesthetic for preserving the treasures we can not replace.
Best of all, it empowers millions to benefit from the products of our ancestors blood, sweat, and tears.
