When you are at the Jamboree, inside looking out, you can not see what is outside the windows. On the other hand, if you take the time to go outside, really look around and you will find a different view looking in through the windows. From there you will see all that is going on without the effects of the cool air, the fan blowing words around with ideas that flow about as if that is all one needs to survive. Once outside, in nature, and realizing that you can have the beauty, simplicity, and keep your health too, then perhaps the extra cost of being able to see the bigger picture, benefit from the knowledge and then make an informed decision will make it worth your effort to get out of the box.
New Berlin Day 3, a big TTH tour and then a half day of work in the salvage mine, with tons of progress and no injuries.
Day three of the New Berlin Salvage Bootcamp and the spoils on the truck represent the entire interior of a Tiny Texas House walls and ceiling.
It is incredible quality, many boards without a knot in 16′ and heavy. Some of the single boards at 7″ wide weigh up to 25-30 lbs, without exaggerating.
Here you can see the de-nailing station where all the shiplap on the truck was cleaned in a matter of a few hours with two nail kickers shooting away.
The beaded wainscot is incredible and the varnish will wash off easily with ammonia cleaner and be ready to oil and look beautiful in a tiny house.
Even with the massive termite damage, we are getting a nice load of high quality Long Leaf Pine that will make several tiny houses before we are through.
Thanks for following along and I hope you track these parts through to Rodney’s Retreat and the others it will go into.
