update on the land prep!


I have been meaning to write up a blog post about our progress with getting our land ready to move to, but we have been pretty busy! So here goes! There was 8 to 10 feet of growth from years of not maintaining it, and unfortunately we hired a con man to help us clear our property and build a spring box for our water supply. We found out he was a con man the same day we wrote him a partial check for building the spring box and his 2nd installment for land clearing, and luckily we were able to put a stop payment on the check. He ended up ripping off the check cashing store… Continue reading

the bumbleshack is soon to be the bumbleshack FARM!

Big news from the Bumbleshack!! After several months of searching, we found an awesome piece of land to put our tiny house on! But it is so much more than just a piece of land!! It is totally unrestricted, amid pastoral beauty, at 3700 feet elevation on the side of a beautiful mountain, just under 2 acres with almost 200 feet of rushing creek, an abundant spring for our drinking water, mature (HUGE) fruit producing apple trees, grape vines and a 100 year old 720 square foot house that we plan to renovate.

update on the land search

Update! As I mentioned previously in a post over on our Facebook page, we received almost 20 offers within a couple of days in response to our ad looking for land to rent (and we are still getting the occasional offer roll in from new people who have just seen the post). We narrowed down our choices to our two favorites, and we are going to take a look at them this weekend! Our favorite is a lovely piece of property on a largish creek with an artist studio and a yurt, both of which we would be able to use. The owner will also give us reduced rent in exchange for helping out around the property. Awesome! The second is 20 acres all to ourselves…we only have to share it with the horses that graze there. And both of these properties are within 30 minutes of hubby’s new office and our oldest daughter’s future dance classes.

We will post pics! 🙂

bumbleshack delivery week

Lisa and Hazy on delivery day

So I finally have some time to sit down and write a blog post about the Bumbleshack delivery! It was a really crazy week with both the delivery and the 4th of July holiday, which is also our oldest daughter’s birthday. We originally thought the Bumbleshack was going to arrive on Saturday, but Joe had some truck issues and had to spend an extra night in Atlanta. Luckily, it was an easy fix, and he was able to get here on Sunday before noon. I got video of  his arrival, driving the tiny house over the bridge next to our house. It was so exciting! Here is a link to the video on our Facebook page.
