It’s true, we bought another bus! We happened upon another one that we liked better because it’s longer, therefore it will be a more spacious home for us. Plus, it’s also in great shape mechanically, and in even better shape cosmetically. Yep, we’ve got a bus for sale! lol!
Our new (older) bus used to be a shuttle bus at Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. This is fitting because one of my favorite folks in the tiny house movement is Thomas Jefferson! lol! I’ll bet you didn’t know he was one of us tiny house folks, did you?! He bought land, and built a tiny one-room house that was 18 x 18 feet, and moved right in. This little home became known as “The Honeymoon Cottage” when Jefferson married Martha Wayles Skelton. They lived so happily there that they soon welcomed their daughter Martha to the family. Enjoying the perks of tiny house life, they worked on another house on the property – Monticello – a project that would be in progress for the rest of Jefferson’s life.
Stay tuned! We’ve got the ceiling hatches sealed and we’ll be getting those seats out and putting down a new floor soon, it’ll be great! I’ll bring you all the gritty details, so stick around!
I’m Carmen Shenk reminding you that we can go tiny, embrace simplicity, and still eat really well. Thanks for watching, I appreciate it!
