May, June, July event, then very limited VIP only access till October for most people this is your only chance to get in for huge discounts and opportunities to get some of what the building will generate as we take it down. Long Leaf Pine beams, joists, and flooring throughout this giant Cotton Warehouse from the late 1800’s.
Appointment only: $500 minimum purchase to come as the warehouses can not be viewed without accompaniment which can take up to two or three hours just to get through all the buildings. Not for the looky-lou tourists but for serious buyers, decorators, architects, builders, remodelers, and big projects… or tiny house material packages.
The pictures will follow as there is still much more, especially fine hardware.
Yes, 135,000 square feet of buildings full of vintage lumber, vintage doors, wavy glass windows, trim, flooring, siding, porch posts, and so much more will be sold by appointment only to serious buyers who are ready to search through treasures to find their parts and create their dreams. Indeed, the visions of cottages and tiny houses can be fulfilled through the vast hidden treasures soon to be exposed to direct sunlight for the first time in 30 years.
Imagine the vintage batches of flooring from 75 houses, windows from thousands of homes, as well as the doors to rooms no longer in existence, though the path to them still exists. Some even have the spirits hanging on hoping to find a new home one day to hang around in, to share and watch from… just a thought from the past for the future. Indeed if you are looking to create a home without imports, new toxic building materials, or outrageous prices for imported garbage to build with at the big box stores, now is the time to make a list and schedule a chance, get your cash ready and invest in the future of your world, your home, tiny or grand, your chance is at hand.
Old growth Long Leaf Pine, Oaks, Cypress, Walnut, Butternut, and so many woods, doors from St. Louis, Buffalo NY, Chicago, Lincoln Ne., Quincy Ill, and many more places, but packed to Texas, brought to create the largest Architectural Antiques Store in the USA at one time known as “Discovery Architectural Antiques” (1996 storefront still there today) was created by Brad Kittel as was Tiny Texas Houses and the warehouses are finally being empties of 75% of the massive inventories that have not seen sunlight in decades. Treasures of all sorts, from trim to the museum grade hardware that is part of one of the biggest collections in the USA for doorknobs, rosettes, mortise sets, pocket door hardware, transom hardware, and much more than was ever in the store is in these vast warehouses that were mothballed in 2015 after collecting for 30 years. Even new old stock fireplace fronts for coal fireplaces made in the 1800’s but never installed or sold.
For more information or to start the series of events to get a chance to tour the warehouses, contact [email protected] or call 512-636-6756 to schedule a talk and see if you qualify to get into these vast but dark and possibly dangerous stashes of architectural treasure. The big warehouses is coming down in Gonzales so it has to be emptied to do it. That is 87,000 square feet under roof of structural grade Long Leaf Pine beams, joists, floors, and roof members… millions of $ to come down and become houses one day.
If you have a store, want to open a Pure Salvage Outpost with micro loans to help you start building organic cottages, chicken coops, play houses and such from vintage materials, then let us know, apply for a package to open with if you qualify, and get into the salvage mining, building, and marketing businesses that millionaires are created from more than any other industry in America.
Hope to hear more from you as we post more about the stuff that will be sold in the next few months.
