Yes it is true, I will be doing our Provocative Lecture on Healthy transitions to downsized living and tour 11+ Organic Tiny Texas Houses.
My intention is to bring many facts into your world that few consider, from air quantity, air quality, longevity, craftsmanship, but most importantly, how to make this transition as a society downsizes for many different reasons, some liking it, some not. Most of the 72,000,000 Baby Boomers who will transition out of spacious housing that has allowed them to collect more stuff than any generation in the history of the world, still stuffed in extra bedrooms, garages, and without a child or heir who wants to have it given to them.
They are set up in a fashion that one might use for a family compound of houses to forma
This is an update letting everyone know more about the unique tour of the village of Tiny Texas Houses that make up Salvage, Texas.
The hour and a half long tour, we are is now starting at 11:00 on and Saturday’s through end of February or until further notice.
Just so you know…. We are not open for visitors except by appointment during the week, and then it is generally from 10-5.
This is a story about how these great old houses will become new homes for millions and careers for a generation if we harvest it with this form of respect for the past that will then be carried on to a future we ought to strive for in my opinion.
Private tours for two or three people will continue by appointment only for $70 and will apply toward the purchase of a house, of course. We walk about a 1/2 mile by the time the tour is over and back to the front are, longer if you go to the top of Miracle Mountain.
We may be offering a short tour of the houses in the front for visitors who are not aware of this policy when the group is able to pay for the time one of the interns or myself my need to escort one around safely. No walk arounds for those who are not members and just show up to play tourist without permission. Sadly, things have disappeared and we can not let that happen repeatedly so for safety and security, escorts are required for a tour of the houses or warehouses.
The tour includes seeing as many as 12 Tiny Texas Houses that I have built including the first one, the Red Mascot, which is now on tour again. We show you the difference between the prototypes that I started with and the Space Magic effect that I apply now. The group tours are on Wednesday and Saturday and cost $20 per adult which will apply to the cost of a house if you do get one. Kids under 12 are free. Private tours are $70 for two people and call for larger groups, keeping in mind, it takes about an hour to 90 minutes to get through the whole tour. Starting at 11:00 AM on Saturday’s. The tour includes seeing as many as 12 Tiny Texas houses that I have built including the first one, the Red Mascot, which is now on tour again. We go through from the framing stages to the finished stages with a great deal of discussion on the issues that are involved in creating a toxin free body and a sustainably built, energy efficient, toxin free organic house.
That also includes my lecture about all the issues in new construction are that are making nearly everyone sick and thus hopefully educating the visitors and hearing their stories they share about how new homes or things like vinyl windows have given them cancer, fibromyalgia, lupus, and other immune system disorders that are rarely disclosed to buyers of newly constructed houses, RV’s, and mobile homes. This is serious stuff folks, for the stories of leukemia, cancer, and sickness are rampant and directly associated with the formaldehyde and chemicals outgassing in the houses we live in today.
I can not help but be sure to cover and emphasize this in order to help prevent ignorance from continuing this insanity for another generation. The evidence is undeniable and attributable to the increased in Autism, cancer, and immune system disorders without question. Doctors, builders, and lawyers will all most likely be upset by my talk for I do not take their feelings into consideration when defining who is largely to blame, failing to warn people, and protecting the industries contributing to this insanity continuing.
We do have a couple of Tiny Texas Houses nearly finished, perhaps for sale, for sale, like the The Retreat, and for sale by the few owners of the 75 that have been made thus fare, but they are a bit taller than normal and would be a pain to get shipped to far out of Texas, particularly going EAST. In the meantime, you get to see three great houses under construction so as to see the process.Here are the houses and a couple shots of the warehouse that is on the tour normally. In some cases, if someone is spending the night or weekend in one of the houses, it may be on a more limited exposure tour. Here are some of the sights to see and be part of physically experiencing because everyone who goes into a newer version of a Tiny Texas House with the Space Magic at work will understand how space is truly a matter of perception. If you are a new member and get to take advantage of the special that gets you complimentary nights in the B&B, then you could wake up, take a nice walk, and be able to enjoy the tour the next day.
The tours do cost $20 per adult, kids under 12 free, some exceptions for large groups, classes from school, and special appnt. tours require calling in advance for special scheduling as well. It is not unusual for us to have over twenty guests so bringing cash instead of using cards or checks does speed up the check in process so we appreciate you for thinking of that ahead of time too.
Sometimes we also roam by the Bear House to show a two story 10′ x 10′ prototype if people want to see it too.
So just in case you do not know, we are not open except for appointment during the week, and then it is generally from 10-5. The group tours are on Wednesday and Saturday and cost $20 per adult which will apply to the cost of a house if you do get one. Private tours are $70 for two people and call for larger groups not scheduling on a regular time such as schools and tour buses. We do not have the manpower or time to escort people through when ever they just happen by and can not let people wander unescorted due to the many hazards and prior injury where a lady took 13 stitches in her calf from a fall. Thank you for understanding and calling if you have special needs or questions.
