Finding places to store the houses you wish to have one day is more complicated than you might think until you try to buy land for this dream. First, there are restrictions in the deeds or county codes. Then the cities have their own rules to ensure they get the most… taxes, services, and things that pay for the giant system to grow more significant that way.
Do you want to get that place out in the woods where you can race to on a Friday night to be out of the chaos, the big city?
Do you want a trailer park to be the place to park your dream home to be looking at the other dozens all lined up like they were cousins?
Perhaps you would prefer the trees to shade the house and hold the birds?
A breeze to cool, a view to soothe, a place where you could quietly snooze, then race back to the city for another week of abuse in a crazy system that seems to lack any use for the spiritual value, the quality of time when wii are racing to a future that few understand is “Time.” Savor hours of life as if each one is so divine that you spend life at the moment. Drink it like a wine that deserves some time upon the tastebuds before going past that line. If you are part of a community, you can come and go there to unwind or to let it make you money as a BnB to find the write-off for that business may just fit your life so fine that you do not need to own the land just the house that sits so fine in the middle of the paradise others keep healthy by design. Help create a place to go in case you need a break but also an example of what others could partake in and thus see what is possible, not just dreams gone when awake.
Yes you could buy an incredible home and plant it in the trees, have water, power, luxury, or be able to go off-grid. To have a place that you can use and makes you money to pay for it too, there is not much you can lose if you ever want such dreams to come true. The question always asked, it seems that varies based on where you choose and which house so as not to confuse if you could buy such dreams and have them to live through your life, and share them so others see. Can you find the path to such a place where you could go swimming and kayak, meet with friends, or escape where no one knows? No one can get back to this paradise hidden here so well in a place called Salvage, Texas that could be that place for some. If interested and capable, with money and a dream, a way to have both things in life, nature, and the city. Let me know by subscribing here and send me a note soon so that wii can plan your space together with one of the houses shown.
While the Retreat must get finished and the Zebu Sisters moved, you could have one for your house in paradise if you can afford the path out of the city that few ever know or hear exists for exceptional people who like privacy not fear. Yes, if you come to visit or to live one day and see the Ship of Salvaged Dreams atop Miracle Mountain made by mii. Imagination reigns here as wii seek to find more Lights to ignite the imagination with the action that glows bright and expands these great ideas round the world as if by night, seeding dreams and thus the actions of the kids who see these sights. You can own an Art Piece, not a picture on the wall, but a house that kids can learn and sleep in, dream of making for them one day. This is the gift of dreams and skills, the motivation for the deeds that others still could do to make salvage the next “Thing” that can help create the houses for the changes this year brings. Do you want a beautiful point to rendevous with others who might think like you from Austin, Houston, San Antonio… they are all nearby but far enough a way that all could meet here for a truly safe date. Subscribe for more information and your possible space, very limited on 18 acres, maybe 20 people will get this chance so if not for you, please share and do what will still make our lives best by creating a place for a space where you can come rest, come dream here too.
[email protected] for more information but also many articles, hundreds with pictures of possible solutions for you to do anything with salvage that you can imagine, yes its true.
Please consider growing your own Outpost to share your skills and grow a tiny village for the ones who want to move. Create a Co-op for the transfer from the elders to the kids who do want to know how to create such things from wood. Use the parts of ancient trees and houses that are here to prove to others what wii can do if wii unite to show it’s true. I ask for other elders to step up in these great times when the changes need solutions that I believe Wii all can find. With all the “I”s together, United for a cause, to make houses for the elders, for the kids, and thus the jobs, as well as what it takes to build a country back without imports, toxins, cutting forests, and shipping too much, too far, over and again. Stop the madness by doing what it takes to prove its true that only Wii can save ourselves instead of what media tries to do.
When that lawn mower is just too big and your dreams are different from when you bought it… trade it for new dreams to grow like the seeds of your past once did. Let the next decade be salvaged from the past you no longer need to create a future you always dreamed of instead of storing the past in your garage, closet, or head.
Yes, suppose you had a big yard lawn mower you did not need anymore and wanted to sell it to help fund your plans to build a tiny house or two. Some are ready to trade situation, conditions, and thus have treasure. For example, the big backyard that will not need the lawnmower anymore, and you could take what would sell for $600 and get $2,000 worth of building materials instead? That would be the doors, windows, jambs, trim, flooring, beaded wood, or other things you need to create a tiny house instead of owning a seldom used expensive grass-killing machine. You barter as an exchange of trash for one person, which you did not sell and profit from to trade for another person’s trash that they are not going to charge you a dollar for and the value, once you put it into a tiny house for your parents or kids, is priceless.
Can’t tax priceless since you will be able to use your labor and friends who will not be paid. That helps determine value, such that your pile of well-organized trash will be a tax-free home, or at worst, a portable building created out of salvage, thus deserving of the 50% reduction in taxable value. To identify that you need an expert written appraisal or evaluation, or even IRS will not value it for a donation to a non-profit that you could write off. In fact, if you build it with salvage you got for free, your labor, and sell it, IRS will consider it 100% Pure Profit, gross though it might be, subject to taxes unless you can write off great expenses against them.
On the other hand, if you built a tiny organic cottage by piling up trash and salvage in a very functional way that I call House Art, and that display was such that you could sleep in it at night but not live in it by day, is it a home or simply a place you stay? What is in a definition anyway? Everything that the law can say must be defined in certain ways so that the courts can then define if you broke the law and deserve to be fined. Tax is fine on our fine work, trash, and imagination if you sell, but not necessarily if you trade it for a trashy truck, or so the owners say as they throw the title your way. In turn, the cottage or the parts will give both of the people a start at creating dreams from others trash instead of taxes for the cash.
If you had bought it from a lot where they sell Tiny Houses On Wheels a lot and park it for a while to live, then sell it if you can or give it to someone to sell it if you wrote it off, guess what? You may owe tax on that. Did you depreciate your home, car, or truck? If you did and you sell, then you could get stuck. Taxes for recaptured depreciation can be stunning on houses and things like portable buildings that you bought and wrote off over 10 years. If you do not sell it but give it away, and it’s worth $50,000 for estate taxes days, then IRS will expect their cut from either you or the kids who got it. $15,000 if valued but then, they need a good appraisal or a sale to prove their need. If you do not sell that thing that makes an income, BnB, and as a portable building, does not pay the Hotel/Motel tax in this state (Texas).
Loopholology then says to me that if I do not sell but give it to my kids if I had some when all depreciation was done, a worthless gift that they might use for a lifetime to store more for you. Memories of helping build a tiny house to move into as a teen and live through perhaps more than college kept for life in the store. Grandkids share the memories of how you built the place for free. Trading where you get the most, triple rather than the cost, but better yet, the pieces for the dreams imagine, yet in store, for you to create instead of bored upon a lawn mower, maybe more that you could trade instead of store. What kayaks, tractors, cars, or trucks do you need to trade to get the stuff to build your next life, salvage enough, to transform it into the right stuff. Forget garage sales. Call with a list and check to see what you need most. Draw you pictures of the home, tiny or perhaps with more. Create a village with your own things that can trade for triple value now.

Build your dreams in other places using those old things left behind by others for you to use as wings. Fly high and see your visions well, draw or list the things you need. List the treasures that did fade that you could use to make the trade. You might be amazed at how much you could carry away, quite likely having to come back to finish taking it all on another day.

This house has more eyes than any on Earth, hidden all about inside… holes with glass eyes that spy all night? Yikes, what a delight to see. Teehee!
What would you put in a place that would become a home for generations instead of just a decade? Where is that place where you can erase the effects of time and technology by using proper social distancing, and separation from the sources of toxicity, whether it be the EMF, chemicals, traffic, crime, or other stresses that people live with each day? Why stay in the city if you have no need or pity for the collapse of systems you can not repair? Living with other things to occupy your old age is better when the local scene no longer suits your needs. The conundrum of the day for thinkers who might sway to a natural and scientific way to stay okay while the rest of the world faces fear and stress each day.
You have a choice to take action and to be part of the faction most respected by the others who may come to learn what it may bring to life so healthily for so long. Can you share it, be the example, and teach the younger ones the ways so that when the systems falter and the need for food and shelter calls on all to do the things it takes to thrive? Few can do what the elders can, and teaching the kids when needed inspires them to learn because it is their deep concern. It does not matter till they need to know how to do these things, but I believe that soon, many will take to crime instead of doing the hard work if they do not see viable alternatives. They will prefer to take the perks. Laziness is learned, but worse, the habits and lack of achievement, willpower, focus, and determination that lead to perseverance, the loss will hurt the social fabric of
Where do you go to start anew without the things that you won’t do, and a place where you could move on to that lets you come and go or do the traveling that you want to? Who cares for the dogs and cats, the chickens that make eggs for us? Whoever stays will have no fuss, for they may leave when you get back, and care for yours is care for theirs, a simple trade-off by those who care.
Where is the land of honest friends instead of neighbors who rent till the end of the house no one seems to maintain that drops your value too? What do you do when your neighborhood is in the downward cycle as they do? Escape with some value or wait until the crime makes a slum of the community. I made millions in my 30s by fixing up and selling crappy houses in a bad area of East Austin long ago and learned it to be gentrification. First, it must go down, down, down, then the money comes to fix it up, and the poor, the crime, and the bad are pushed out. Why not skip the two decades of a cycle most go through if you can jump out early and find a paradise to start anew? Like the sun and earth, everything turns in cycles, just like us.
Just a thought project for your daydreaming to dabble with as you plan your life for after the coming days of transformations in societies worldwide.
If Wii, all the “I”s work to share our skills and encourage others to create incredible things instead of settling for “Walmart quality imports” as cheap alternatives. This applies to food, exercise, skillsets, and a means to make our dreams come true through hard, focused work by each of us. Hopefully, many working together in numerous tiny communities focused on a Pure Salvage Living Renaissance that respects the vessel, the home, our ancestors, and the children to be born for generations to come. Please help create such villages of hope and solutions near you too.

In a world of intentional communities being created as more people realize there is a demise in store for the societies that are collapsing as you read these words, change is coming and no one can stop it, though many take advantage of the storms that lie ahead in a future few anticipate. Time to unite, but for most, it is too late. Fake news rules the daze.
I have found that everyone wants to do the 5-acre and 10-acre retreat thing. Still, few have the money it takes, as I have spent well over a million bucks and done millions of dollars worth of work. It is but a foundation to build on after a decade. The most challenging element of it has been finding the quality of people to sift through, hoping for some nuggets of humanity that deserve nurturing and support to join with and thrive, plant seeds, and then watch flowers blossom around the world.
The truth has been difficult to accept in life, but there is no choice in my mind and experience. If there is a fate, a God, or a Truth that can be held up as universal, Love must be the foundation for it to grow and prosper in any community.
No true love, friendship, business dealings, or sustainable Community can be built upon lies. Yet Liars appear as soon as the doors open, and keeping them out is nearly impossible. Getting rid of them once they are proven out is critical. Better to be alone than in the midst of liars, thieves, and cowards. Truthful communication is the key to Unity: Comm-Unity is not random but intentional. Don’t settle for lies.

The few that will be able to survive what comes will be scattered instead of united, disabled for not being able to prepare properly or take care of what they did save away. The isolation costs show up when there is illness or injury and when there are only a few to hold a community together. The loss of the key leaders is generally the end of a community, for one supports the many who can not support themselves for various reasons, including greed, power, and conflicts of personality, A vs B, without the Sigma to question and set the examples leads to battles and the feminine sides pushed aside if not vigorous. Yet, the balance must preside, not pride and power over love and logic.
This is a balance of human natures that are invisible and uncontrollable by their nature to be free. The results so far are clear, no community that I have seen has found the answers to a secure long-term future if they try to grow without limits. It is hard enough getting a group of more than two dozen families or pairs to get along and agree with what has to be done for the future together, aside from what each wants to accomplish in their own right.
Mixes of religious views, upbringing, cult-ures that will influence the morals that make up the community ethos are complicated by the lack of true communication between the members. Who is allowed to join, and how do you get some people to leave who do not fit in or feed off the group without contribution, as is more common than I imagined before 500 people came through?
What does the hope of communication for the sake of unity lead to but a community, and is that a teachable ethos, a format that can be duplicated unless you have a plan for stopping the liars from destroying the potential, creating conflict, dissent, and a downward attitude spiral that must be stopped or it will destroy the group’s unity.
It is easier to isolate, to be a hermit than a leader, and preferable as one ages and realizes that most do not want to be empowered but remain enabled to do the wrong things without reproach. To argue for their own limitations and expect me to stop them more than once or twice in my attempt to empower them is enough. They win that argument every time, for I am not here to deny their belief systems. Show them alternatives they are welcome to walk away from. Most do.
This gift of a simple question asked by Ursula today brought this great inspiration for a finger dance on the keyboard. Thanks to synchronicity for letting me explain the mystery away. That is why there is no cult of people here who stay. The truth is wii are just beginning to find the right people to come play and create a faith-filled embassy where Truth can be found and taken away. Have a great day.
Original post and access to be a bidder or a buyer of these two houses come at the price of a paid subscription. Are you interested in learning more? Read on. How could you own such a home, have a place to put it for a decade or more, and move it later after paying for it with write-offs against taxes by our governments? Loopholology is the path I choose to get a tiny house in Texas that you can not lose on for a lifetime of satisfaction doing what is right as you go along. Did you know in Texas if a BnB is portable, there is no 15% tax for the nights? It is not a house by definition under 400 sq ft. Thus, you get to depreciate it in 10 yrs, not 28 instead, and can sell it off without the land, as you will see and understand if you choose.
Yes, the makeup faded in the sun on the girls that went out West and won the hearts of those who stayed inside their bosoms to dream for days. They have been staying in, but no one has lived in them full time, so a decade has been very kind. They need new paint. Yes, makeup helps when you have incredible storytelling eyebrows like this Rare Cowgirl.
She’s a Texas Cowgirl with a flair and confirmed, a patriot like few have known, for she proves it with Red, White, and Blue, besides the fact she will stay true. Is this the tiny house for you? The House of the Rising Sun is due for a change in homestead that I am about to do for the right new stewards of not just one Art House but two. Made as a set, I hate to break them up, but wii may do if the situation calls for it. Then that is what we’ll do!
Sadly, she has been in waiting for a bit too long as
I hesitated through the winter and waited, but a storm did take its due. A broken glass, a bit of water, Dirt, and dust but no webs or wasp nests. She can be brought back to life and, for a hundred years, do right, but first, wii have to pack her up and truck her to a brand new spot.
Yes, she needs a bath and oil, a massage you might say she’d enjoy. A bunch of Hemp oil on her wood, and she will light up bright as she should. After a decade of neglect, she still looks good and will last on a century or more in style if we move her a few hundred miles. The beauty of a transportable home is that it can still move and roam. Not tied to wheels but can be on while cruising down the highways on special trailers made for this job and people who know what it’s about.
So dirty, but not deep down where wii can not go in and clean. Oil the floors so they will swell and fit together oh so well. See the colors and the grain. Milk paint lasts, and oil holds it in.
The paint faded after a decade in the desert sun, yet the wood is fine. Cypress and the Long Leaf Pine are good for several hundred years, but these need oil and paint again to bring her back to life, my friends.
It’s been a while since she left home. Like the Tantra Temple shown here, they have lived a great life to start so far, and now this one has a new life in store. Who will the owners come to be? Perhaps that could be you or me. I am trying to bring home my babies, who once had to roam. If I can get the money here to keep them in Salvage, Texas near, I will do that, or if you want one here, contact us. It could happen this year.
Otherwise, if you wish to surmise if you can afford to buy one of these pride and joys of mine, they came from my imagination and heart energy as they were created at a time when I was feeling the loss of my son and watching this great nation fall. I once had the workers and the will to do these things that I can’t do still. If you want to know how to get a chance to buy, how much if you were to bid and try… get a paid subscription, or you can’t afford them, and for now, it does need to be an answer for just gossip. Later… now speculation.
What is this house worth to the buyer? We will learn soon.
Variables include details in packing based on the potential to have them also repaired, restored, or just delivered straight to you and worked on there. Let us know before to get an estimate and bid to buy if you wish. For now, all options are open. Once they get here vs. “as-is,” and of course, the costs of transport to deliver and set up, that is a separate matter.

Seldom will you see a Tiny House made better by me, Brad W. Kittel, the creator of the Tiny Texas Houses line of examples to entwine the world in the idea of 95% Pure Salvage Building which is by far the most pollution prevention possible if you wish to conserve, preserve the world for the kids to come and have fun. Yes, this has new wiring, screws, nails, insulation, and a underlayments, but otherwise, it just saves energy by not making glass, cutting trees, melting metal for sinks, hardware, or other such things as hinges that hold the fold down porches on.
So the sister, the House of the Rising Sun, aka the Arched Zebu, is the grander two-story Vicky Zebu. She is fine in so many ways that few other tiny houses can compare to or even phase. She has a balcony, porches, shower, and kitchen. In fact she has all you need to live in her full time for the rest of your lifetime if you find that thought sublime.
A shower and a comfy space to clean up for the human race if you should have to go that far or stay in your paradise, but clean from the start.
This kitchen sure looks lived in, as if a college kid lived here. Oh, one does, and he did not know we would be by to take a picture. Imagine his surprise.
A look up, and I am sure you will see that the loft is not normal as you free your mind from lines and move into curves, swerve, and imagine the fun in the sun with windows all around too.
The bathroom has a window into the inside of the house, but for privacy, if you should need it, close it for a while.
So if you want to know more about the price and how it would work, you must have a paid subscription, as that is how this will be sold.
Don’t hesitate to contact us and learn more about the price or anything you need to know if you are a contender to be the owner of this Art House that is rare indeed, a chance to own and live inside a thought.
Brad Kittel is reachable at [email protected] by email or calls if a paid subscriber to learn more. The bids will start at $110,000 on this house, but I expect it to exceed $135,000 or more depending on what you would like us to do before and after it arrives, as well as considering the cost to ship it there, loading and unloading, setting it up is not in the purchase price. Thanks for your interest and sharing if you would care to, as this is a find that does not have copies or retakes.

Wii are the army of humans who must step in to lead in a time when the leaders seem to be committing the greatest crimes. How do we stop the world from caving in all around but by becoming the examples of what to do to be better now? Do you want unelected leaders of the elite world to determine what freedoms you have in the future from Brussels or anywhere but your own country? There is a proposal that WHO, the World Health Organization, will be granted powers that will impact the entire world’s freedom to resist Vaccines or masks one day, according to the plan.
Yes, my dear friends who do not know, it’s up to us to become the force of Light that must Unite to Be that One that gives the kids the will to not give up, to Fight. To seek great solutions, cut paths through the jungles of discord and chaos with the coming times that may feel like a forest of darkness made up of ignorance and weak-willed, weak-minded people poisoned by food and drugs. Global populations are suffering as food gets more expensive and scarce. Lawbreakers wreaking havoc are growing in numbers all over the modern world. There are finally zombies living on the streets as if from the movies where the creepy things that make for horror flicks are real. This is a great reason to live and know why Wii were born to help save the children from becoming conformists to be like the Sheople masses. You see miracles from our near-death experiences to make you realize one day you will be a special girl or boy at any age to stand up to protect the freedoms of those who can not defend themselves and be the examples that give them hope and strength.
A grandma or grandpa is supposed to be the hero that will kick some big butt if you keep yours under control to teach kids how to care for the vessel you are obligated to honor, not obliterate into morbid obesity out of disrespect for the gift of life. ooops, channel a dash of heaven’s Light, but some won’t see it without the proof to know when what you hear, though harsh or it may hurt, still makes some wake up to the dangers of the TV and the media. Wii are the Light Brigade that will stand up for truth, for what is right, without killing all the others in the land. Unite as Light and communicate through the darkness that will feel like night, for the final battles are in the heads of man. Do you understand? Be the example of living right, in the Light of Love and natural freedoms, aging with grace, not disgrace.
Lead by Being incredible each day to pave the way for others to see what they would not believe is possible without knowing you. Be the inspiration to help others overcome the fear of failure or powers they think they can’t control. Life is full of possibilities that many never see due to distraction from the past or fearing what may come at last. Savor the moment, the journey instead, while knowing that you are on the right course if you read and learn as fast as the facts come to light so that you can be one of the leaders with sight. Use not just body but minds so they grow to be the best vehicle to live your life through. Imagine the moments you might create to improve the world so wii all celebrate a place that wii would want to get a chance to come back to and share in the paradise wii created in the past. Our future is formed in the days that wii live with a vision and dreams of a beautiful trend.
Peace and prosperity will follow bad times, and I pray that you thrive as you teach others to shine. Be the bright beacon of Light and Hope with the path to turning that into solutions to cope and build a new world when the old one gets broke. Be ready to Be there, where you can shine, lead, teach, and become “a part of the future.”
Yikes, I have been replaced! Or have I? Who will ask the right questions and know if the answers are simply hallucinations, inadequate, or just plain wrong?
Suppose you simply let AI write your papers for school, or for that matter, answer your questions on life or science. In that case, you must be aware of the potential to get answers that may appear to include all the information or perspectives available but only solutions within the parameters of the way the question is phrased.
Here is my example with some pictures of salvage and salvage building results to enjoy as you consider that this is true but far from as complete as it will be when I design a better question to get more of the resulting answer, logic train, and other components that a properly wrought question can create.
If this is so, are there ways to manipulate the results of a question by how you interpret the intentional goals of the person designing the question? Are you aware of how this magic can be done to create questions that will lead to the answers you want logically and accurately, and yet still have much more that could be included and even alter the results if you know how to ask the question right? This means exclusive and inclusive details that become parameters in a question that can alter the results dramatically without being noticed until you see the differences. These are the nuances of Mass Media and narratives by marketers, con men, or governments that often fool people into thinking they have all the facts they need to make a rational and wise decision. The last few years have been full of these sorts of trick questions and answers that people need to learn to spot in order to understand what makes a good question and answer or be fooled more as AI takes on the mantle of Truth, even when it is just hallucinating.
So here is my experiment with the Chatbot that is getting all the attention these days, the lower level of it. I am sure the higher-level version will be better. It did not fully answer the question, nor did I think it did a thorough job at what it did answer. 6th grade answer in my grade book.
Chat question and answer time:
Write a treatise on the reasons 95% Pure Salvage building for tiny houses is sustainable for the following reasons, detailed with some statistics on the cost of newly made/created building materials based on energy required to create new glass for windows, new metal for all parts of hardware like door knobs, hinges, and for the cast iron sink, tub, or other metals used such as wire for electric or copper for plumbing. Wood is another item that is salvaged and used versus new wood so figure the cost to cut and process the wood for a new house’s average size now being 2500 square feet. Calculate the cost of the metal roof required to be mined, formed, and shipped to create a house as opposed to the cost reduced by using salvaged roofing which is thicker gauge and will still last as long as the new roof with a self-sealing 30 warranty underlayment. From me to chat
In recent years, the concept of tiny homes has gained immense popularity due to its sustainability and affordability. One of the most significant aspects of constructing tiny homes is the use of salvaged materials, which not only reduces the cost of construction but also has a positive impact on the environment. The 95% Pure Salvage building for tiny houses is sustainable for the following reasons:
Reduced Energy Consumption: The construction of a new house requires a massive amount of energy to produce new building materials, such as glass for windows, metal for hardware, copper for plumbing, and wood for framing. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the production of new building materials accounts for 11% of total energy consumption in the United States. By using salvaged materials, the energy required to produce new materials is significantly reduced, thus reducing the carbon footprint.
Cost-Effective: The cost of construction materials has increased significantly in recent years, making it challenging for people to afford new homes. Salvaged materials are available at a fraction of the cost of new materials, making it an affordable option for constructing tiny homes. According to a report by the National Association of Home Builders, the cost of construction materials has increased by 60% over the past decade. In contrast, the cost of salvaged materials has remained relatively stable.
Preservation of History: Salvaged materials have a unique history and character that cannot be replicated by new materials. The use of salvaged materials in construction not only preserves history but also adds to the aesthetic appeal of the tiny home. Salvaged materials such as reclaimed wood and antique hardware add a unique charm and character to the home, making it stand out from conventional homes.
Reduced Waste: The construction industry generates a significant amount of waste, which contributes to environmental pollution. The use of salvaged materials reduces the amount of waste generated during construction, thus reducing the environmental impact. According to the EPA, the construction industry generates 534 million tons of waste annually, accounting for 40% of total waste generated in the United States.
Durability: Salvaged materials are often of higher quality than new materials, making them more durable and long-lasting. For example, salvaged metal roofing is thicker gauge and has a self-sealing 30 warranty underlayment, making it more durable than new roofing materials. The use of salvaged materials ensures that the tiny home is built to last, reducing the need for frequent repairs and replacements.
In conclusion, the 95% Pure Salvage building for tiny houses is sustainable due to its reduced energy consumption, cost-effectiveness, preservation of history, reduced waste, and durability. The use of salvaged materials in construction not only benefits the environment but also adds to the unique character and charm of the tiny home. As the construction industry continues to grow, it is essential to adopt sustainable practices such as the use of salvaged materials to reduce the environmental impact and promote a more sustainable future.
What do you think, kids? Fun, fancy, creative? No pictures included. I added them.
The vultures of intellectualism await the carnage from the dumbing down of the world through fear, stress, and isolation sprinkled with misinformation and a determination to get the masses under some hypnotic control. AI might just do the trick.

So I asked a more in-depth question and reprimanded ChatGpt for being too simple. It apologized, to my surprise. They tried to do better.
That was a 6th-grade level report. Very basic, Can you not do the more extreme extrapolations to show as I asked, how much energy is thus saved, approx. Calories of heat to create glass per sf for example, as a reference to the energy saved by not using new glass. Also, the savings on trees, old growth lumber that will outlast new lumber, and the longevity of the salvage-built houses due to their higher quality and not using cheap materials like sheetrock, vinyl, plastics, or composites but all salvaged materials. How much energy is saved by not having to make all those items to build with? How much toxic pollution is saved by not making the materials to build a house with? How much fuel is saved by not importing a single item from another country? If a salvage-built home with old-growth lumber can last for another hundred years as it did in use for the last structure, it will have 4-5 lifetime use compared to new tiny house-on-wheels mobile homes built in factories with materials that have a 7-15 year life. Doesn’t that mean the salvage-built house will be four times more energy-saving by not having to reproduce it every 15 years like the new houses? I apologize for the previous report’s simplistic nature. Here is a more detailed explanation of the energy and environmental savings associated with 95% Pure Salvage building for tiny houses:
Energy Savings: The production of new building materials requires a significant amount of energy. For example, the production of glass for windows requires approximately 6,000-8,000 calories of heat per square foot. In contrast, salvaged windows require no additional energy to produce, resulting in significant energy savings. If we assume an average tiny house size of 250 square feet, the use of salvaged windows alone could save approximately 1,500,000-2,000,000 calories of heat. Similarly, the production of new lumber requires energy for harvesting, processing, and transportation. According to the US Forest Service, one acre of forest can produce approximately 2,000 board feet of lumber. If we assume an average tiny house requires approximately 500 board feet of lumber, then salvaging lumber from one-quarter acre of forest can supply enough lumber for one tiny house. This means that the energy required to harvest, process, and transport new lumber is saved, resulting in significant energy savings.
Environmental Savings: The production of new building materials also has a significant environmental impact. For example, the production of cement, which is used in concrete, is responsible for approximately 8% of global carbon dioxide emissions. The production of new lumber also contributes to deforestation, which has a negative impact on the environment. Salvaged materials, on the other hand, have a significantly lower environmental impact. The use of salvaged materials reduces the amount of waste generated during construction and reduces the need for new materials, resulting in significant environmental savings. Additionally, the use of salvaged materials preserves historical resources and reduces the need for new resource extraction, further reducing the environmental impact.
Longevity: Salvaged materials are often of higher quality than new materials, resulting in more durable and long-lasting structures. For example, old-growth lumber is denser and more resistant to rot and insects than new lumber. Salvaged materials such as antique hardware and fixtures are also often of higher quality and can last longer than new materials. The longevity of salvage-built homes means that they require fewer repairs and replacements over time, resulting in significant energy and environmental savings. If a salvage-built home can last for 100 years or more, as opposed to a new tiny home on wheels with a lifespan of 7-15 years, the energy and environmental savings associated with the salvage-built home are significant.
In conclusion, the 95% Pure Salvage building for tiny houses is a sustainable and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional construction methods. The use of salvaged materials results in significant energy and environmental savings, and the longevity of salvage-built homes means that they require fewer repairs and replacements over time.
The cost of producing corrugated roofing of the same thickness as the older stuff, double present standards, and the savings from not making hinges for doors, 8 lb cast iron weights 2 per window, and savings on the cost of the materials, which if salvaged, are free except for human energy, which if donated by the beneficiary of the wood and windows, doors, floors, and other parts, then gets the materials virtually for free. Given that factor, what would you estimate the savings in cost, on a ratio basis versus the cost using new materials, imports, and energy costs to do that. The cost savings associated with 95% Pure Salvage building for tiny houses can be significant, especially when compared to the cost of new construction using imported materials and energy-intensive production methods.
The cost of producing corrugated roofing of the same thickness as the older stuff, double present standards, can be expensive due to the energy and resources required to produce the new material. In contrast, salvaged corrugated roofing can be obtained for free or at a significantly reduced cost, resulting in significant cost savings.
Similarly, salvaged materials such as hinges, cast iron weights, and other hardware can be obtained for free or at a significantly reduced cost, resulting in additional cost savings. When salvaged materials are donated by the beneficiary of the wood and windows, doors, floors, and other parts, the cost savings can be even greater.
Overall, the cost savings associated with 95% Pure Salvage building for tiny houses can vary depending on the specific materials used, the availability of salvaged materials, and the amount of human energy required to obtain and process salvaged materials. However, it is clear that the use of salvaged materials can result in significant cost savings compared to new construction using imported materials and energy-intensive production methods.
The Line Shack, Potty stop you will nearly die for in the sky, on the fly, spells relief.
Who would imagine this awaited you when you landed at a unique executive airpark? What if you needed a nice bathroom, a break, drink, fuel, and then get back into the air? This spot even has a gourmet restaurant that anyone will attest is chef excellent too.
Need any souvenirs? How about some functional accessories?
One pilot here can see around the world. Send messages to anyone in the sky or on the ground to let them know there is a place where they can stop in any case. You could have a jet retooled to be a palace. Others do, through King Aerospace, the patron who paid to create this incredible jewel. I hope you get to stop and visit, either drive or fly in for a meal and great eye candy that few will ever see I’m sure.
In the corner are the baths, for women and for men, none are designated for those confused or who pretend. hehe.
Back through the doors from a cool reprieve from the clouds, winds, and sun in your face. Flying can be fun indeed, providing you have a place to pee and get a snack at the “Line Shack” so that you can feel free to fly through the day with a classic memory.

What are you looking to create for a home you can live in for a healthy life long, savoring the journey unlike the throngs of people in the cities, suburb farms?
So many could create tiny villages on land that stay in the family as a trust for those who will help care for the gardens, animals, and trees. The people who help watch when you are gone feed the critters and train the kids. Those are the people of the towns once upon a time, back when I was a kid, and perhaps you, my friends. But today’s kids know little of the villages that have gone away, lost by those who left to the big cities to find work, now wanting to go home. Where the heart is when wii get old is not the same as when wii were young. Our values run in cycles. The things wii want as kids are not the items on the list to grab and then take with us as wii downsize into smaller digs.
What will you take from the past you hold in your hands, your house, your old storage buildings, or your garage? Is it time to sell and know that if you let go, life will still be great to live, and you will have so much to give if you are not still paying for the stuff you collected, never look at anymore?
For hoarders, it’s a question, a collector you must see spent his life and passion for learning what few will see. Touch the things they gathered, they spent their money on and wondered how the Beanie Babies ever made it on the collector’s lists. Truly once wii see how our collections come to be the anchors that may hold us back from moving forward, as you know, they act as anchors with the home that holds your memories.
What happens when you pass into the realm where this is lost, left behind like dreams you had that you held on to gold or things that you did not want to leave when waking? Can you hold onto the true and final test that lets you see if you were dreaming or forming reality? What are you doing to prove you were here?
Create your Matrix floating in your head as a dream wii were sent to help manifest instead of all the distractions that can take your life and home. It is the power in your heart, the power in your head, the ability to feel with instinct, the Love and Truth instead of the takers and the cheaters, the liar’s words. Time to sell some of the past to pay the taxes for the future you dreamed of to materialize now. Do not wait for the proverbial tomorrow that never comes.
NOW I take some of my advice. SALE TIME TO PAY FOR THE TAXES ON THE LANDS AND LIFE. See anything you like? Contact Darby for an appointment to come pick out all you need for any size project, not just tiny.
Please consider as the world changes in such ways that each of us can lend a hand, clear another’s way, and give a chance to learn again, reestablish honor, and prove to those who wish to share, that there is a good and right path there. I will help fund you as wii all work together to put greater value in the things that wii have collected by turning them into functional artistic parts of our future. Preserve the evidence of our skills that our ancestors proved possible once wii focus our imagination and human energy. Set yourself free and help others see the benefits of salvaging a home, a life, a future out of what appears to be spent resources, humans who have no value because they look like broken houses, barns, and stores closed due to conditions beyond their control.
Let us “Save Our Salvage”, and create a respectful example of a future that honors past work and achievements that wii can not match. See the beauty and preserve it so that our grandchildren can see what can be rather than the cheap Walmart stuff that “is cool” instead. Honor the handmade of past and present that hold a sense of pride and human energy within their construct that no robotics can duplicate. At least not for now.
Thank you for considering contacting us for parts and pieces to create your tax haven, your dream paid for with a write-off for you or those you love who need them and want to support your growing your business. HOW about building organic cottages that are import and toxin-free? If you can get the backing and the chance to turn taxes into income for you and the family, don’t hesitate to get in touch with me to see how Wii can help.
