The creator of Tiny Texas Houses and Pure Salvage Living wants to help people start tiny house companies that use salvaged building materials.

If you’ve been looking for an opportunity to build a green business that reuses and repurposes existing resources, that has the potential to help solve a very real issue for many people (high housing costs), and that capitalizes on the popularity of tiny houses, you may want to jump on this offer.

Brad Kittel, one of the pioneers of the tiny house movement who has focused his efforts on building tiny homes almost completely from salvaged building materials, is looking for a dozen or so people (or groups) who want to start their own version of his business in their area, and he’s willing to jumpstart the process by supplying “a giant stock” of materials, as well as offer his guidance to the project.

Kittel lays out the case for establishing what he calls Pure Salvage Outposts, which would build and supply tiny houses according to the building standard set by his business (using 95% salvaged materials in the builds, and using as few new or imported materials as possible), across the country, on his blog: www.puresalvageliving.com/…
