Life is an adventure.... "The Carpenter Craftsman" moniker which became our LLC was born out of a sole proprietorship business begun in 1997 in TN when Charles was given his first moniker "The Tennessee Handyman" by his customers. A USMC veteran, Charles F. [Chuck] Bearden, II, 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. Rose put him "on the map" in June 2014, when they married under the pergola he designed for her, creating the website you see here. She is also a couture seamstress, editor and writer, musician and digital marketing expert. See www.eastcoastmarketinglady.com for her portfolio. 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 at 2735 Nottingham Court, sold "The Tennessee Handyman " moniker and URL to a young tiler named Lucas Zapeta aka A.J. Construction in Murfreesboro, TN to live in Florida for a year. Additional monikers followed as we traveled up the coast: "The Florida Handyman," "The Charleston Handyman" and "The Connecticut Handyman." It was not until 2019 that we agreed he had earned the right to assume the moniker "The Carpenter CRAFTSMAN" based on fine honing his craft. For those of you not familiar with a moniker, it's a nickname...and this one has stuck to become The Carpenter Craftsman, LLC.
Since we 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.com
We 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!
"Apex, the Peak of Good Living" has rightfully earned its byline, in our opinion!
