You have done amazing things. I thought of my son, Kevin. Kevin is not retarded ... just out of step. Kevin has no social skills and has a hard time keeping a job because he says/does odd things. I feel odd social skills is not something you care much about. Kevin does have good spacial skills. You can't tell him things, or have him read how to do things ... but if he can 'see', he can do anything. Seeing your work I just wish Kevin could have a chance to work at such a place. Kevin is in Baytown, TX. You wouldn't consider expanding to other areas?
If you think the Tiny House movement is not the forefront of a political movement to actually live like you want to save the planet instead of just bitch and live large while the world’s problems persist, then this is the wrong page. The pollution you create with your daily life is what you should focus on, the energy you personally use, the waste you create, the poisons you give your kids, and do more than just carry on and attack those who are doing something to make a difference. Live without your big house, car, and new clothes, big TV, massive electric usage with AC, appliances, and more. hypocrisy at its best is exposed on this site by watching those who do not live the lifestyle attack those of us who do. I do not have AC, AC electricity, running water, or other things I do not need in my master suite of a tiny house. I listen, watch, and know that many of the people getting upset by my stance on global and space weather are in fact using much more of the planet to live on than is their fair share if you want to talk about conservation of the resources. But….. will they change their ways or just get angry and carry on doing the same crap?
All of these pictures show what can be done with salvaged materials. The real purpose of this page is to share with others what is possible to use for creating homes, instead of new building materials, and how to create as much usable space as possible out of tiny spaces so as to help people imagine living smaller instead of larger, as most seem to be inspired to do who are over 40 years old. This is about how you could do better, build smarter, think about healthier living choices, village living, peace on the planet through our individual behavior, not just bitching to get it to stop, but doing what it will take to reduce the demands on resources and quit producing so much waste.
A floating bed can create amazing spaces as well as incredible sleep.
There are actually people who come to this site and just want to see pretty pictures of tiny houses and not address the issues in the world that are making it scary for the kids of the future who will inherit the consequences of our wasteful generations in America and the developed countries that are pillaging the tiny countries for their wealth. The madness needs to stop, and consumerism, promoted more by American TV and our society than anywhere else in the world, needs to change soon or the world will take its toll on the populations through sickness and food shortages, as well as many other consequences of polluting the planet.
This is just one of the solutions that we can take to heart and live by, to help create jobs, homes, and purpose in people’s lives, create solutions in a society desperate for a new path other than the American Dream of having it all and being in debt forever, locked into jobs few have a passion for in order to pay for it all.
In the end, it is the love, friendship, family, your health, and your happiness that are much more important than the things you will save up and stash inside a big house or wear on your big body. Wake up and you will find there is a simpler path to happiness without being critical and judging others for having an opinion that is not like your own, as we all tend to do, when we can agree to disagree and have discourse instead of deleting, unfriending, unfollowing, and trash talking because we have no better intellectual input or positive energy to add to the game. Don’t just bitch about what is wrong, be part of the solutions by learning the real depth and solutions to the problems at hand.
Does that have anything to do with the weather on all the planets changing, the sun cooling off with fewer sunspots, or the cause of the change in the weather on our planet, not really compared to volcanos, Gamma radiation from the cosmos, Solar radiation, etc? We are a tiny part of the big pictures and could be wiped out without much notice with the planet going on just fine, through deep ice age after deep ice age, then warming for a millennium or two for people and critters to flourish before more cataclysm occurs. Cycles people, if you look back at the ice cores they drilled lots of cold times and warmer times as well.
Don’t be fooled by the propaganda, live a life that is going to better the planet, and keep your mind open to the new facts, data, and ways we are learning that do affect our planet more than we ever thought in the past when we did not have satellites, massive computers, and the geniuses to interpret the information with the guts to tell the truth instead of scientists who sell out so they get grants, recognition by the powers that be, and a moment of fame for promoting the party line. Wake up and think for yourself, do the research, and you will see the facts. Short of that, unfollow, unfriend, hide my posts, and keep on the path you have chosen for there is no better way than to learn but through experience if you refuse to have dialogue and learn more than just following what the narrative will provide.
So in order to help create a place where people can gather, share, talk about the possibilities, have music and film festivals, and even a market where all things old or crafted from this country can be bartered and sold. For the people who do want to know more about organic living, housing, and alternative health care, we need a space to meet amidst the biggest cities in Texas so I am creating Salvage, Texas to be such a place. Here are some pictures of the progress as a big part of the decks have been completed. Next the stage on the back of the building and the completion of the kitchen so the guests at the B&B with Tiny Organic Cottages will have a place to meet, eat, and share their thoughts in dialogue, not just a bunch of people agreeing with a delusional narrative out of fear of not being PC, which is supposed to mean Politically Correct but has turned into a means of suppressing free speech for those calling themselves liberals these days. Freedom of Speech is more important than being PC so hopefully, we will have a home for those who prefer Free Thought being shared to gather.
Pity the world cannot seem to agree to let others think for themselves but some people do want to see the day when the government can tell them what to eat, think, and do every day. May it bring them peace and may they allow others to know peace even when they disagree.
Please visit Salvage, Texas as it grows to be what it can be based on Truth, Freedoms to think, pursue happiness, and sustainable paths to a future for the changing times to come. Thrive, and prepare for the amazing world we are creating by the way we live today.
