A little while back I started laying out my tentative plan for the old farmstead. This plan has changed 800 times since I started it, and I know it will change 800 more times before it is finished, especially as … 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
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.

Hi, everyone! As I mentioned in a previous post, we went to Asheville last weekend to check out a couple of properties that were offered to us in response to our ad. They were both beautiful! The first was on … Continue reading
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! 🙂
Exciting news, everyone!! We will be moving into the Bumbleshack ALOT sooner than we expected! Why, you ask? Because hubby got a job in Asheville! He was looking for jobs in the future because he planned to stay with his … Continue reading
We are looking for unrestricted land within 30-45 minutes or less of the Asheville area (in North Carolina or Tennessee) for our tiny house homestead. Our plan is to build out two shipping containers with a covered deck and an outdoor kitchen in between. Our two tiny houses on wheels will serve as bed and organic breakfast vacation rentals.
We need to find unrestricted land, however, Continue reading
