Now, we’re all familiar with reclaimed wood coffee tables, coasters and other custom furniture that keeps perfectly good materials from being dumped into landfills. But, what if we told you that you could build an entire home out of reclaimed building materials?
Yes it is true….. I am opening up the Pure Salvage Living Renaissance Treasure Box to test the idea of my Pure Salvage Clearinghouse and Network to help dismantle and save America from the dumps. I mean the Land Fills that are consuming our heritage and our future independence from imports and the loss of all industry, building materials, and most importantly, the chance to teach our youngest generations the life skills it takes to be self sufficient in small groups, villages or tribes that have survived for thousands of years without electricity. Just in case they should ever need it, I believe our generation of baby boomers is obligated at this late stage of our societal collapse, to gift the children born today with what we have left that can become homes, solutions, and a future they can be excited about instead of dreading.
Here is the first test of a far away project in New York, of all places. Needless to say, from my warm and sunny perch here in the Heart of Sunny Texas, I am not interested in the adventure unless it were to happen on the few days of the year you have to match my weather, so I am determined to screen and find the people who might turn this into a win win situation for the owners and the Salvage Miners who are called to do the right thing NOW.
This is a matter of honorable people coming together to all give back something to our future. One has assets that are no longer usable in their present form and the other party will honorably take the wood, fixtures, wiring, plumbing fixtures, and then dispose of the trash (the expensive part if any) in return for the reward of having the materials to build a dream with or sell to pay for the dream that might already be in progress. The point is that if two honorable people can get together and agree to help each other, everyone in the whole world will benefit from the results, not just the two parties involved.
This is the principle of the Pure Salvage Living Renaissance that gets missed. There was a time when we build our creations to last for lifetimes. We offered our best and others, knowing the quality, were willing to honor our work and pay for it without griping about the cost because they knew in the long run, the quality would pay back many times over for generations to come. We can defer the end of the planets resources by not throwing so much away after one use of it, rather using it until it can not be fixed, repurposed, or recycled before it ever reaches a landfill. Likewise, our Word, our Honor should never be thrown away as if we have more we can buy cheap at Walmart or the local church of forgiveness for tithings on Sunday making it okay to throw it away again whenever one chooses, and buying a new Honor System on Monday. This is about a Lifelong Honor System that includes our Planet Earth and the Generations that follow, not just the customer who buys what we build today.
I am hoping we will find like minded people with a True Sense of Honor, a desire to do Good Deeds, Act to make the World a better place, and enjoy the Fruits of Giving, of Loving the people and the Planet, both those we are familiar with, and the many people and parts we know nothing about, for now.
Please join me in this new Idealistic Vision that is simply an arm of the body of the Renaissance that will grow from Tiny Texas Houses and the Pure Salvage Living Renaissance.
If you are not afraid of hard work, using your mind to overcome obstacles in the path to your success, and are willing to treat others with the respect you wish to receive, and the honesty that all people should hold dear, this is a possible opportunity to change the world, your world that is.
The will be limits to what you can do, but with the help of friends, older people with knowledge but perhaps not such great body parts any more. Link up with the people who have trucks, trailers, crowbars, ladders, saws, and you will have a team that can tackle more than this one small starter. If you want to do this bad enough, it will happen, but never without some work and effort. If it did, everyone would be running to do it, and they may still once they see how great the rewards are from this pursuit.
