As I Hit My 61st Birthday In A Couple Months I Believe More Than Ever That Our Generation Can Do Better To Create An Alternate Path To Consumerism And The Fallacy Of The American Dream Of Owning A Big House, Cars, And Things As A Path To Happiness.

Salvagefaire is a path for Snowbirds to own Tiny Texas Houses too.

The idea behind creating a Market and event venue I call Salvagefaire is to enable more people to come and be part of the change we can create with Salvage. It is a way for us to share the songs, the films, and the market to barter and sell the parts, the plans, and the houses that will open a new path for the generations still to come. This is a great way for those who like to get away from the cold of the north for the winters to not only write it off against any taxes, but to create an income while they are home that will pay for their winters here in the warmth of the Texas as well.

Here is what I envision for the front stage, though others will follow on other parts of the property, this includes the recording studio, the restaurant, and the beginning of a bigger dream manifesting.

This sketch shows how the building will finish out with the stage on the back. Many bands have their own stages and equipment and we have other locations to set up on the property, but this will be the easy stage in front of the recording studio so that live recordings could be done easily. The decks wrap around the building so as to also provide a gathering space for people to be able to meet and share ideas about the subjects of the events going on, whether it be Salvage mining, building, and hunting, or the car rallies, bike rallies, and other gatherings that can be held on the large parking area. The market will run around the perimeter of the parking area and provide plenty of space for people to bring crafts, art, music, and other things they create to sell to the people who come for events. Weekends will provide opportunity to gather together, camp out and get away from the city, and move forward with dreams of creating tiny house villages, learn more about prepping for the possible SHTF scenarios, learn about organic gardening from vendors selling what they have grown and much more.

As I hit my 60th birthday this month I beleive more than ever that our generation can do more to create an alternate path to consumerism and the fallacy of the American Dream of owning a Big House, cars, and things as a path to happiness.

This is the foundation on which the market and event venue is built upon, a company that has proven we can do amazing things with 95% Pure Salvage by building incredible Tiny Texas Houses that will provide toxic free living space for the next century or more.

It seems that so far, the IndieGoGo campaign is not getting much support and apparently I do not know enough about how social platforms find the inspiration to support ideas that will benefit many people instead of just the person who donates. My old fashioned perspective of building the community that in turn changes the world seems to lack a great following so far, but I am hopeful that at some point people will share, Tweet, and get involved, even if only for a small amount of money, or time it takes to grow a dream into a reality. After all, the land is here ready, buildings most of the way finished, the materials are all in stock to finish this main facility and literally build the entire market if 100 spaces were to be created, as well as 100 Tiny Texas type houses to fill in the acreage around the center of Salvage, Texas.

The Supermoon looks different when viewed from up on high,  It lets you see the village with the Moon above for light.  Tiny Texas Houses in a grouping that will provide places to stay outside the city, as well as RV and camping spaces for events.  You won;t find that in the big cities.

These are some of the houses already on the property and even available to move into other location or leave in place as a space for you to stay in during the winters, or when you want to get out of the city. When not here, you will be able to make a guaranteed income of 9% of your cost of the house paid out in dividends that will fund your trips back and forth from the north when winter comes. Much better than an RV I believe.

The idea behind Salvagefaire is to create the income source for those who decide to live here part of the year or full time. For snowbirds, this is a chance to own a tiny house to come stay in rather than haul a giant RV each year and have the tiny house earn you money for paying for the next years visit while you are back north for the summer. The options to let us put the house in service with a B&B plan on the side of the highway is a tremendous way to write off the house for depreciation as a business investment, have a valuable asset when you finish, and a place to spend the cold winters that is grounded and beautiful. The houses actually cost less than new RV’s, are totally non-toxic, built sustainably, and give you a great nights sleep.

This is the simple version of Heaven on Earth that we can create and make happen with human energy and Love.

Here is one of the Tiny Texas Houses with two bedrooms up in the lofts, a big living area, bath, and kitchen. It even has a star gazing deck on the porch roof that will let you sleep out under the stars when you want.

For more information about Tiny Texas Houses which has been around and a leader in this arena for the last ten years, check out the rest of the photoblogs on the website that show the sorts of one of a kind houses you could have for your winter getaway that pay for the trip each year, and you can leave them here when you go back home.

In the back ground you can see the Arched Zebu also known as the House of the Rising Sun.

Even us old timers, as I turn 60 this month, can think of ways to help make the world a better place for the kids that will follow. I think we owe it to the younger generations to try to clean up some of the mess we have created in our Baby Boomer Party we got to live through. No one else will ever have it as easy as we did with the big house, cars, and easy debt that we have proven does not make people happy in the end. It is what we give, how much we love, and how well we take care of ourselves that determines our happiness but we often do not figure that out when we are young. Lets help the next generations by setting a new example before we go.

Thanks for considering being part of a legendary market and event venue as well as a town build sustainably from 95% Pure Salvage. You can be part of the solution, and leave a legacy behind that the next 7 generations can learn from, be part of, and use as a model to build a new path other than the American Dream of gigantic houses, big cars, and consumerism that has taken over our nation. We can do better and this is the chance to show how that can be done.

This house has been seen around the world in one of its several colors over the years.  It is in the back now readied for guests to stay in overnight.  She is known as Vicky Too.

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 uses half metal for the lower portion and half wood for the top of the exterior walls.  You can make it what you want.

This goes up into the 30' class of Tiny Texas house that is big enough to live in full time.
