The Carpenter Craftsman was begun in 1997 in TN as The Tennessee Handyman by Charles F. [Chuck] Bearden, II, a USMC veteran, who grew up in a family of tradesmen. He worked with his uncle on roofing projects throughout Nashville; his father was an electrician, and he expanded their business vision by gaining skills in home and commercial renovation, repair and restoration. His wife, Rose put him "on the map" in 2014 with this online portfolio, using her 21 year in marketing. She is also a couture seamstress, editor and writer, musician and online marketing expert. See www.eastcoastmarketinglady.com for her portfolio.
Life is an adventure...Here's Our Story! In 2015, we decided it was time to find "the perfect place to retire" and agreed to take the next 10 years to do it and not be thrust into it by a disability; we decided to rent our lovely home in Thompson's Station, TN [see video below] and travel. We had already lived in and visited 95% of the rest of the USA, and since we'd lived near lakes and preferred the ocean, the East Coast called to us. We decided to give a few key locations on the coast one year to impress us; we have cultural expectations that are high: we enjoy classical concerts; we enjoy opera and the symphony; we are avid readers and go to the library weekly; we dance all styles of ballroom; we like to hike and canoe. When we do actually retire, we want to run a bed and breakfast inn and invite people who love good food, fine wine, nuevo tango dancing, and great conversation to experience top-of-the-line service in our home: www.thebbdreamteam.comWe adore the concept of living so light everything we own will fit in one 26-foot truck and living "green" with everything not used given away to Goodwill annually to be reused by another. Starting over, making new friends along the way, seeing and experiencing life, taking and making time to see the beauty of the USA...for us, it's not about accumulating stuff, it's about living fully and being Closer to Free!
