Throughout each month of 2017, we are running member only contests to win tiny house (or “organic cottages” as we like call them) building materials.

For each contest, there will be a new set of antique & salvaged building materials.

The contests will get progressively more challenging throughout the year but will include more and more unique and valuable building materials.

To qualify for each contest, you must be a Pure Salvage Living Online Member and submit your essay before the listed deadline. Members can submit entries to every contest and win up to two times this year.
