Hello. I am the owner of Villagers, an urban homestead supply shop located in Asheville NC. In late winter of 2014, I was lucky enough to pair up with the good folks at Nanostead, to embark on this tiny home trailer project. I’ve set up this blog to share the journey with you.
Natalie is a fellow Tumblr Blogger in the process of a beautiful build happening now.
