Life is an adventure...Here's Our Story! "The Carpenter Craftsman" moniker which became an LLC was born out of a sole proprietorship business begun in 1997 in TN when Charles was given his first nickname-- "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 a couture seamstress and interior designer, editor and writer, musician and digital marketing coach. 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 and launched The Carpenter Craftsman, LLC.
Since we had already visited 95% of the rest of the United States and prefer the ocean to man-made lakes, the East Coast beckoned to us. We decided to give a few key locations on the coast one year to impress us; honestly, 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 a historic home we meticulously maintain. Until then, we adore the concept of living light and Closer to Free! And, it would appear from statistics and demographic reports, we are not alone in traveling the entire coast from bottom to top to search for the best place to retire!
