There was a lot of work and years of preparation that went into the decision to purchase the land on which we are building the Tumbleweed house. That being said, there is one factor that you just can't plan for. And that is neighbors. We had no idea on the day we closed on Mt. Matt that we would end up with a pretty darn cool group of neighbors living on our tiny mountain road.
This weekend was a little different for us. Usually, we go up to North Carolina with a clear plan of what would need to be accomplished. However, this weekend we were invited up for a block party and that was pretty much our only purpose for the weekend.
It was a great weekend, and one of the only weekends in recent memory where we went up to Asheville but didn't have days and days of work to do. Believe me, I don't mind the work at all but it was a very nice break. And it is great to know all the folks on our mountain road and all the cool stuff we are each doing.
