we have water!

temporary overflow pipe; will remove this when we hook up

So we finally hired an awesome guy to install our spring box after months of searching for someone who could do it. I was surprised that there didn’t seem to be anyone that did this professionally in an area where so many homes use springs and springboxes for their water supply. We were told by a few people to do it ourselves, and it seems our neighbors who have lived on the mountain forever most likely dug their springboxes themselves years ago. However after doing some Continue reading

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

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.
