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.
Jerry and Billy in a giant space that you can see through now.
This shows how to use 2×4’s to leverage the nails out without using a ladder at 11′ off the ground to the boards.
Great type of truck and rig to use for hauling the longer boards you will get if you are lucky. Remember, the longer they are more valuable they are for resale.
Much of this had no knots, even at 16 feet long.

Look at the incredible pile of rare beaded and flat 5″ tongue and groove.
Rodney, Kiev, Sally, and Kelly are taking the nails out and prepping it to load and leave.

Here is Matt who is taking out all of the beaded wood on the bottom and the shiplap on the top of this once utility room.
Layers of thick 45 year old paneling from the ceiling is great for many uses later on and it has outgassed,, cured, and would cost $20 a sheet to buy of the same quality new. Took less than 5 minutes per piece to take it down and there are more than 25 pieces- ergo $500 worth of quality paneling.
Great shiplap in 10′, 6′, and 16′ lengths. By the time we were done today, there was $2,000 worth of shiplap alone on the truck.
Yes, that is one fugly kitchen. Billy eyes the old holes from the original windows that were later replaced with a modern ugly as sin kitchen.
Thew long deep view of the De-Nail station. Amazing progress and much thanks to the Nail Kickers that blew the nails out like bullets flying.
