Yay! New blog post, finally :)
I love how in your model, every inch of space under the stairs is utilized.
What was the interview for?

Hi Jennifer! Thanks! Actually, we've redesigned the staircase again (making our newest one the third set of stairs we've made) and it's slightly different than the one in the photo. The newest version is less steep with more stairs, and some storage space. One of these days we'll write a post about our model house!

As for the presentation, our local bus system is switching to compress natural gas, and Tyler's dad is spear-heading the project. He was interviewed by the local paper.

It's quite rare that a jaded introvert like me finds such joy in reading someone's blog.
It's also almost never happened before that I enthusiastically retell those stories to my wife as she enters the house.
Congratulations to you both on your work, your stories, your pictures!
I'm a (beginner) traveler myself and planning for a bike tour in the near future.
I have a few technical questions for you. Could I pick your brains a little bit about your workflow, especially about Lightroom? Should I write those questions here, in the comments, or should I contact you directly?
All the best,
Cristi from Romania

Hi Cristi! Thanks so much for your kind comment. It made us both smile when we read it this morning— and it made us proud that we won you over. ;-) Strangely enough (for a couple that writes about their life very publicly), we're actually pretty introverted, ourselves.

We're more than happy to answer your questions. The best way to do that is to click the 'contact' button in the upper right hand corner of the website. Hope to hear from you soon!
