Thanks for understanding!*There is a Chatter Thread on Ravelry so we can encourage each other along the way.Ask the Geeks - Celeste (celeste) from Minnesota asks:I envision your knitting/cross stitch/bookstore/coffeeshop being in a lovely setting with two tiny houses in the background for CC and Dr Hubs; and another for Dami (and family perhaps). What do y’all think about that? If you would love that idea, what would each of your spaces look like (have either of you fallen down that rabbit hole). For some reason when you talked about the rolling ladder at the bookstore it made me think of you getting to use that in your tiny home (also tiny homes do have the option for a downstairs bedroom). Also what would the outdoor space surrounding your homes and businesses look like in this scenario? Would you consider having space for additional tiny homes (van living, etc for your business workers, or just cool people who need a place to dock?) ?Misc. - ~Support the Podcast, Become A Patron~Want another way to help support our podcast?
