Let me tell you about Beau and Kelly, a super cool family who live on a big piece of land in Texas. They have five awesome kids and live in a small house that’s just a bit bigger than your classroom! Their house is like a puzzle – they made it from a tiny building that used to be something else.
They love their land so much and take care of it like a big garden. They grow their own fruits and veggies, and even have some animals like chickens and maybe even a cow! They’re really good at making things and fixing stuff, like turning a regular building into a cozy home.
Beau, the dad, knows a lot about making their land special. He’s like a treasure chest of information, always thinking about the best ways to take care of their home and land. In this chat, they talk about how they started their amazing project, what the land looked like before, and how they turned a shed into a tiny house.
If you’re curious about making your own little farm, or if you want to know about building a house from scratch, you’ll love listening to their story. Beau is really good at explaining things, and you might learn something super interesting from him!
