Imagine your retirement fund, penalty free, invested to assure you have a Tiny Texas House

It is true, if you have not owned a house in the last three years but have accumulated a large 401 K retirement fund that is not earning a big return, while you can, it is possible to use that money penalty free for the downpayment on a home. Imagine if that home were able to then pay for itself at 8% or more per year in return while you are waiting to one day move in and live full time.

Even the tiniest of houses can make a person's life incredible, and we have the resources in place to salvage for millions to have this or better.  All it will take is the human energy directed to manifest them.  The helath benefits for people and the planet are many.  Having clean fresh air in the house is just one to consider.

That way, a $25,000 investment in a Tiny Texas House would give you an interest and the right to own one of these rare houses to live in, use often through out the years, and ultimately insure you have a savings account diversity that such an out of the city tiny escape can provide. Your return can be used to buy the remaining interest in the house over the years, taken out as dividends without increasing your ownership interest, or eventually, added to in order to buy out the remaining interest in the house so that you can take it away or live in it full time.

The idea behind it already being in a permaculture village environment with an organic Arts market nearby will have have many advantages to some who will want to have this escape from the city for concerts, events, film festivals, or just a quiet escape when nothing is planned at Salvagefaire. When you come down you can work in gardens we are building, help create aqua culture visions using as much salvage materials as possible. Creating housing, pathways, and finding a balance with the eco systems we create and the model we hope to build showing what is possible with tiny houses and new forms of markets based on a sustainable and organic ethos focusing on domestic small businesses.

From here we can see the houses that you can come and spend a night in, then come to the top and meditate, listen to the birds, the frogs, and feel the electrons flowing up through you to reach the sky.

We can do miracles if we unite the many energies that are creating solutions for everyone and who choose to share them with others on more of an open source perspective rather than solely corporate profit motivated. The creation of models where others can come learn how to salvage, build, invent, and create, to share organically grown food with those who live in organic houses, create furniture, crafts, and lives with the Pure Salvage Living Renaissance in mind.

Windows, doors, trim, and more could be brought into an old empty building that is doing nothing for the town, then turned into houses, careers for the young, and a path for the elders to become a valuable part of the society again, as they still possess the knowledge it takes to create the world I dream of.  We must do this before that wisdom and knowledge is lost.

From the various groups who share common desires for organic solutions, avoiding big PHARMA, imports that poison and destroy the last of the virgin resources in the world. We can create a future with much of the past, and a little bit of the best of the present as well. First and foremost is to minimize energy consumption, resources consumption, and paying attention to the toxin load resulting from the parts we use to create the future of our survival as a species, but the survival of the planets environment and other species as well. Every little bit helps, but this can help more than any other because it effects so many different levels of our society by opening doors of opportunity to the common people over the big corporations. Small family businesses can run circles around the big corps, thus the movement will be to the benefit of the 90% over the 10% who run the rest of the building materials and design worlds. Still, it can happen and all can be happy, if they will simply start cutting some slack for this industry that benefits all of America.

Imagine a country that was intelligent enough to identify its biggest treasure turns out to be its trash, not oil, methane, or coal. This is a resource that can be mined by the common man, not just the big oil and gas or mineral companies that get contracts to take American Resources from tribal land or federal reserves. They pay big bucks in contributions to get lucrative contracts and then disregard the environment when they mine the lands.

Instead imagine mining a resource that is now considered waste and finding a way to turn it into an all inclusive industry, housing for the homeless, the handicapped, and the millions of baby boomers being forced to downsize in the decade ahead. Salvaging houses, buildings and barns across this country create the path for millions of people to find employment. From the salvage mining to the salvage building, we could easily train millions of people to also build entire villages with these incredible resources. By moving materials from areas where there is no demand to new parts of the country where materials are needed, we create value and thus give truckers work, along with all the others who help harvest, package, ship, warehouse, and transform into new housing.

How much space do you need in a house to be healthy?  Not much.  To be happy?  Not much.  So why do Americans think they need 700-1,000 sf per person?  Marketing my friends... no more because the rest of the world is happier as evidenced by not having 45% of their populations on anti-depressants like here in AMERICA.  Sad fact.

I live now in a tiny house, just 10' x 23' called Temple Tantra, without power, or running water, it is my master suite, and all else is there when I need it.  I am the healthiest I have been in my entire life at 60 yeas old, much better since moving into here to live full time.

The process of unleashing a trillion dollars or more in resources through the hands of millions of people who will gather, dismantle, salvage mine, and then help sell, form it into houses, villages, and well, it is unimaginable for most. Few consider this could truly happen but if you get the true support of the government, federal, as well as local, there would be tax benefits to the common man which would be an incentive that would work far better than giving money to banks, oil companies, and giant corporations who do not create new jobs. Small businesses create more jobs than any other source so let us grow them here first.

How do we do this?

Simply give a tax credit for houses built out of 50% or more salvaged materials, thus domestic, Tax free status for 25 years. If built with over 75% salvaged materials, tax free for their entire life.

That means that since the sales tax was paid over a century ago when the house was built, and property taxes paid for over a hundred years while it was shaped like a house, the materials that would have gone to a dump get saved, and have officially been taxed to death. In the land fill, they do not have to pay any more taxes ever on the contents of the dump.

If they sell some of it for a profit, then the do, in theory have to pay some tax. Some sell off the methane gas that comes from the piles of refuse we call land fills but most people do not know that 50% of the contents is building materials.

Imagine how much longer they would take to fill if we save half of the building materials and build houses out of them. Should anyone have to pay tax on the trash that we diverted to save and extend the life of the landfills? Should anyone have to pay taxes on something that was dead as a house or barn and resurrected as a house instead of being buried and forever lost? There should instead be a reward for those willing to live in houses made from Salvage which some consider just trash. By providing that break we would provide impetus to an industry we dearly need to grow in this age of depleting resources for our growing populations. The downsizing of the Baby Boomer population and the paying off of the debt we have created, if even possible, does not bode well if we do not create some new domestic industry.

This may be one of the last treasures we have that can be harvested by and for the benefit of those who need it most, not just for the executives of the giant corporations and government presently coming up with the plans that are not working. We can not spend more and ship our best jobs overseas, fuel wars, and police the planet without industry here to work at and take care of our own people with first. Let us tap this treasure and we can rebuild our country without imports, government assistance, or global corporations coming to our aid. The people can do this at a local level much better if the local governments will help work with them to create incentives that will pay back by creating work, solutions, and a future for the towns that are facing the empty buildings.

Here is a great 12' x 21' example of what you could create from a Tiny Texas House materials package.  This one does have the full wood siding but the package suplies corrugated to use for bottom 3' metal for the lower portion and siding for upper half wood for the top of the exterior walls.  You can make it what you want but the basic package inlcudes this style.  This has two windows in the end wall while the package includes just one.

If we, as a country, want to change the way we build our future, this is one way we can make a difference with our individual choice. We can downsize our footprint in a responsible way, using salvage to build our final house with, and do it sustainably with a low maintenance high energy efficiency future. Please join me in sharing the idea behind the Pure Salvage Living Renaissance that will promote a consciousness about what is possible through building with Salvage Materials.

Inviting in a sexy kind of way, the room they recorded in is much smaller than Heaven which is only 11' x 21'. Their all packed into a space 2'6"  narrower even,  though likely near as long.   Admittedly, we provide much more space and our acoustics would be dynamite.   I wonder if we could get them to record in a Tiny Texas House???? Let's all ask!

The Retreat is a 12x26' with a giant second floor.  The interior is awaiting its final owner to help determine how the interior will be finished out.  This would make an incredible home and office as the upstairs is gigantic and would be totally private.  Sliding divider wall would make the living area office and hide the breakfast and bath areas if desired.

Imagine, your savings could create your role in this movement to recognize and transform the treasures of our past into the treasures of our future, instead of trash at the land fill, lost and forgotten before our grandkids know what was lost. You could help to build an organic cottage, own part of one that makes you far more money than your 401K or other retirement plans, and have a tangible asset that would be your private place to get a way to for weekends and vacations, yet have it make money for you as we use it for our B&B so others could experience the incredible sleep one can experience in an organic house. The more you invest into a Tiny Texas House that resides in Salvage, Texas, the more you earn back instead of watching the balance in your savings growing at miniscule rates. We can do better and you will be happier with the ownership in a home, than in a certificate of deposit at the bank which means you loaned them your money which they are not obligated to pay back to you if they get in trouble. Nice thought.

Remember, this was the drawing we started with as an concept for the house.  I like the results alot, and we could put the beaded wood in this or in the Retreat, still awaiting interior skins.
