Add title Finding the Light in the Waters of Salvage, Texas This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is 20190606_203453-1024x899.jpg Sometimes when my imagination is a floating all about, I ponder on the ways that we can salvage what we've got.

A place where water can thus flow and help the food and people grow. To treat our gifts of nature like they can not be replaced, and thus we just may have enough to keep us in this race. Humanity is running swiftly into challenged times so I pray that these examples will help some to find the signs that wake them up to thus prepare and thrive as we strive on.

Copper ore, some crystals too, sandstones, metals, slag, and whew... there's just to much stuff hidden here and you can mine it through and through. Yup! All sorts of things hidden in the Grotto at Kayak Bayou, and you could mine your share of the booty by the pound and then create the talisman for them followers of your crafts.

If you do and get a walking, take a mud soak, swim, or rest... I'm sure that when you leave from Salvage you will have seen the very best. Tis one example of the salvage put together for the people to see what can come of all the things that people just call trash. For a house or make a village. Create a future for the kids. Don't throw away the work of ages but give in new life with such birth. Hope to see you all soon.

A pond to reflect what's upon it, an some water thus to fill.

It takes work!
We are promoting the merits of Pure Salvage Building techniques by creating real life habitats that prove these designs, construction techniques, and principals can be applied throughout the country.
Some of the best solutions are the simplest ones. I want to share some of realizations and lessons learned while pioneering a new perspective focused on transforming what the public sees as trash into sustainable housing.
Our Salvage Built Tiny Texas Houses have 100% American grown, harvested, and processed trees for the lumber. Most were cut down and sliced up for use decades ago, in many cases more than a century. The iron ore, copper, and other metals used to make the hardware was American mined, smelted, and ultimately manufactured into some of the best door and window hardware in the world. On the Internet there was an interesting comparison of branded drugs and generics. We used these incredible natural resources and the once unmatched work ethic over the last 15 generations to build American homes that lasted for more than a century. That period ended by the 1960‘s with the advent of built in obsolescence and the move offshore to foreign manufacturing.
Nearly all of the doors, windows, hardware, sinks, and materials we use were originally made before the mid 1900’s, by Americans who lived in a world flush with resources and opportunity. We still have those, but people have become blind to the wealth before our eyes and have somehow come to think that if it has been used once, it can not be as good as new.
I believe that we can refocus on those same resources and rebuild our nation from what are actually incredible treasure loads of materials waiting to be salvaged throughout this country.
