tiny house family looking for land or farm to rent for 6 months near asheville!

All 4 of usExciting 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 current employer through the end of the year, but THE job came up. You know, that job that might as well have been made for YOU. Yeah, he found it. So starting on Monday, November 3rd, hubby will be putting his skills as a software engineer to work in Asheville. Our tiny house life starts in just over 2 months!!

But you know what that means?!?! That means all of this stuff in our big house has to go NOW! We have 2 months to get it done. TWO MONTHS, holy cow. And, even more important than immediately downsizing, we need to find a place to park the tiny house for about 6 months while we get more familiar with the area and find land to buy. We’d like to move onto our land in the warmer weather of the Spring.

So if you have some land, or maybe a spot on a farm, within an hour or less of Asheville, NC and would like to rent it out for some extra income for approximately six months (end of October through April), please contact us!

bumbleshack crew on front stepsWe are a super nice, quiet, private, environmentally friendly family of four – hubby, our two daughters (12 1/2 and 2 1/2 years old), our calm, sweet, older Golden Retriever/Bernese mountain dog mix and me. We also have two indoor cats, but you will never see them! Hubby is a software engineer who works Monday through Friday, and I am anΒ artist, wildlife biologist, amateur organic gardener and work from home Mom. Our mornings will be spent homeschooling, and our afternoons will be spent driving into town for dance lessons, delivering to art galleries and such. You can find more information about us on this page.

The Bumbleshack is an 8Γ—20 tiny house on wheels. It is finished with dark stained cedar siding, has a red metal roof, lots of windows, and frankly, is downright adorable. It would make a great addition to any farm, yard or neighborhood. We plan to hide the trailer portion with latticework and potted plants. There is a more detailed description of the house on this page, and you can find more photos of it in our Photo Gallery. The interior decor is not quite finished yet. We just bought it from Tennessee Tiny Homes, an RVIA certified builder, a couple of months ago.

What we need:

  • Level spot to park, minimum size of 10 x 24 feet
  • Outdoor water hose hookup for fresh water – we have our own hose
  • Standard 110 volt extension cord hookup to power the tiny house (from the main house or existing utilities) – we have our own extension cord
  • A place nearby to dump greywater – we use all natural and organic soaps and shampoos, so it could be used to water landscaping
  • WiFi internet – we can acquire our own internet if needed
  • An extra space, like a small cabin or studio

What we can offer:

  • Monthly rent – we are open to suggestions on the amount
  • Payment for electric, water and internet usage, which could be included in the rent if preferred
  • If you have an organic farm, I would love to volunteer to help out in exchange for knowledge, experience and possibly a share of veggies! About 10 hours a week would be perfect.

Have something that might work for us? Contact us!Β And please share our page with others!

  1. My cousin lives in Cullowhee, North Carolina (west of Asheville). I just sent her a message on FB to see if she knows anyone who can help you guys out. I’ll let you know as soon as I hear back from her.

  3. Hi there,

    Saw your repost through loggerhead homes and sent a message to my friend at The Ruby Roost. Her farm is West of asheville. Not entirely sure what her land lease availability is but she could definitely help with gardening if you’re in range. She’s really sweet, check her FB page for an idea of whats going on. Glad to help someone living small!

  4. I live in Haywood county, from our house you can be in avl in 40-45 minutes . If in a hurry , I have made it in 35, but don’t recommend it!

      • Hi Lisa
        Did you find a place yet? I have 29 acres north of Asheville in Weaverville (I can be in downtown Asheville in 20 min). We are eventually going to build a house there, but right now it’s unoccupied. There’s no water or electricity currently, but there might be some options for that. If you are interested, send me an email. It’s great what you are doing! Good Luck!

        • Thank you, Monica! We do have a place that we are taking a look at next weekend, but thank you so much for your offer! If it doesn’t work out, we will let everyone know. Thanks so much!

  5. Hi there! I am about an hour east of Asheville and also live in a tiny home. However, we are completely off grid and our water source comes from rainwater we harvest! Let me know if there may be something we could do to help!

    • Oooh, Stacy, that would be our perfect scenario! We are not quite ready to go off grid because we don’t have a rainwater catchment system or solar panels yet. But I am going to email you anyway if you don’t see this post! Thanks! πŸ™‚

    • Good idea about the move across town! We are hoping to find an organic farm somewhere just because we would like a little more privacy, and I would love to help out on the farm to gain some more experience. But if we can’t find one, this is definitely an option! Thanks so much πŸ™‚

  6. Hi, Lisa!

    Did you find a place yet? I just saw this post today (a little late to hear your exciting news! congrats!). Didn’t see an update on here about whether or not you ended up finding a place, so thought I’d ask. We have 5 acres. I went ahead and sent you a message via your contact. πŸ™‚
