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
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

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.
