Starting and ending in May of 2015, the first full length building seminar. You do not have to come to all of the days of construction, but if you can, why not learn how to build a house that you can then create a career out of doing over again, and again, and teach others how as well. That is what being a member of the Pure Salvage Living Renaissance is all about.
Yes, finally, we are going to offer a series of weekend Salvage Building Seminars. They will last for 4-6 weeks and will take the participants through the framing of the floor to the electrical, plumbing, and finish out of a small house. We will also be using two weeknights for training as well, Wednesday and Thursday 4-9 and Saturday 1am -7pm then Sunday 1pm -6pm. No charge to participate to members only who will be working physically but… those who come to just watch, learn, and take the info off to do great things with teaching others, $100 contribution will be necessary to help offset the costs for this endeavor. If it works, we may do it again. This is intended to be a test of the interest level out there to see if it is as in the past, all talk and no walk, or if this time there will be people to show up and work, learn, and carry this renaissance forward into the masses who await solutions for housing, downsizing, and reducing the toxin loads in their living space so their children can grow up healthy and without all the hazards that modern construction have brought into the home.
We will also make available for a discounted price, the Tiny Texas Houses on site that are ready for overnight guests who want to stay and work the whole day instead of just the evening during the week, or stay for a nice getaway weekend while learning how to build a house like the one you get to sleep in while here.
So you want to learn how to build? Have no experience…. then we will need to put you through a tool safety course of some sort. We will offer a few cheap classes, as in $35-$75 for a crash course to train people who are not confident with power tools like a table saw, circular saws, jig saws, reciprocating saws, and nail guns of a variety of sorts. If the demand is there, we will make that class optional. NO One can be using equipment that they are afraid of as that opens the door to the materialization of the feared results. Liability releases must be signed to participate so that you are aware that if you get hurt, your insurance or you cover it, not us. Do NOT come if you think I should be responsible for your actions or what could happen to you while you are here.
Over the years many have said they want to do this but few, very few, were willing to sacrifice time, money, or human energy to learn it. So how else can it happen? For those who do want to learn, are willing to do the work, take the time, and be serious about making a difference in the world by the actions they take each day, not just by the words flowing out of their mouths that never lead to action, this is your chance. This is not an open ended offer to just anyone and everyone, as we are still requiring participants fill out a basic questionnaire so as to weed out the crazies, thieves, litigation tramps, druggies, and potential problems by focusing on the people who are serious about learning, doing, and sharing. If you feel that is a problem, then surely there will be other places that will be glad to teach you for free instead and you need not worry about coming here.
That said, this is an invitation for people who support us by being members in Puresalvageliving.com site membership and thus help us make this education, videos, blogs, and other examples for you to learn by so that we can promote these solutions growing around the country, not just in Texas.
One of the reasons I am halting the construction of houses to leave Salvage, Texas where I am building the whole town out of Salvaged Materials, but to get others to take up the call to build these sorts of houses all over the country. Too many people were waiting to have me build them when they retire. Problem is, I will retire from that job before they are ready and they do not have any money saved up to buy one with so this is what they will need to be considering soon, how to get them built locally so they will be more affordable. Shipping alone on my houses could hit over $12,000 when you are crossing several state lines. The cheapest way to do this is to build them locally from all the salvage just laying around in tiny towns and cities all around our nation where jobs are needed, housing supplies for downsizing do not exist, and millions are facing living on the street if we do not come up with a plan in the next five years to house more people in tiny spaces. This is a chance to be on the front end of that wave and be part of the solutions that are already available.
The resources are waiting to be picked up and put back into good service. All it will take is human energy, ingenuity, creativity, and determination. The rest is just waiting for people to take up the cause and turn this country around with the power of the American entrepreneurial spirit which I do not believe has died in spite of our government trying to tax the heck out of us who dare to start businesses. Remember, small businesses create more jobs than the big corporations who get all of the corporate welfare, tax breaks, and buy off all the politicians so as to pass laws that force the public to use their crappy toxic building materials and all build cookie cutter toxic box houses in subdivisions where houses are all one of three colors.
So starting May 6–7, then 8-9, then May 13-14 and 16-17, May 21 a Thursday as we will not have it on Wednesday of that week, but running through to Friday, Saturday, and Sunday 24th, hoping to be very far along at that point and thus possibly finishing if we get enough people. If not, then one more week on the 27th-28th and then finish on the weekend with Saturday the 30th and a finale Party on Sunday May 31st for all of the people who were able to come a be a part of the production. We will try to film as much as possible if we have enough help, produce a video to show how to build this one, a set of plans on it that can be adjusted for the windows and doors you may want to use, and thus, hopefully, a new generation of salvage builders will be launched into the world. If it works, and we can do this without mishap or misdeeds, then we may try it again but do not depend on that happening and just wait. If you want this to happen, want to be a part of seeing it happen again, then act now.
Email to get the questionnaire and application to see if you qualify to come and participate in the first full Tiny Texas House building seminar…. for members only, at no cost except the human energy and honor we expect from our participants.
