one day years ago a lady came to r.wood studio looking for work. she was 50 years old, but said she'd never had a job. she brought some pictures of her woodcarvings and the house she built with her. she's an old hippie who 'turned on, tuned in, and dropped out' in the sixties, and bought 200 acres of land in eastern tennessee. she started homesteading, building her house one room at a time (as needed), growing her own food, etc.
needless to say, i hired her on the spot!
since then i've been to visit the lady, lee, and her husband, john, a few times.
here's some pics of their amazing home...
