The tiny house movement is not just about getting rid of all your stuff and "getting off the grid, maaaaan." It's not just about cute little nooks and Pinterest boards. It's about taking a good hard look at your life and figuring out what it is that makes you tick, and about making your life the best life you'll ever live. It's about getting away from the stress and financial burden of keeping up with the Joneses. Most importantly, it's about spending every day of your life doing the things that you want to do and making time for the people that matter the most to you so that when you're 80 years old and looking back you won't regret spending the majority of your life doing work that you didn't enjoy to pay for things that you no longer have. That brings us to Nico and Kate. Nico and Kate are an awesome couple on Vancouver Island that have decided to take the leap and make the move into a Rewild tiny home. They came to us with months if not years of research and daydreaming, cool designs and a great idea of what they were looking for, and a ton of passion, immediately drawing us to their story. A musician and a yoga teacher, both Nico and Kate have found their passions and are designing their lives to compliment their work. They are making this move for all the right reasons, and that's why we want to do what we can to help support them. It's people like Nico and Kate who inspire us to make the move, to stand up and say "this is my life, and I'm going to live it the way I want" - without cutting off all contact, quitting our jobs, and moving to a remote corner of Bosnia to live off the land wearing a loincloth. Ok, that might be a bit of a hyperbole, but the point is - it's possible. You can do it. Take the leap, and the net will appear.
If you want to help Nico and Kate, they have a Go Fund Me account set up where you can chip in to make their huge (tiny) dream come true. They are offering lots of cool things in exchange for your support, from freshly baked cookies to personal concerts to yoga classes.
