Catherine and Kacey are two of the most intelligent, caring and kind people you’ll ever meet. They laugh easily and often. They’re not scared away by a challenge. And they may have found a solution to the incessant noise of today’s digital world – in the form of their Bay Area tiny house.
The idea started the way I get most of my good ideas – with a Netflix documentary – and it grew from there. But it didn’t grow too big, because that’s kind of the point of a tiny house. Catherine and Kacey share their journey in better words than I ever could, so check out their Copebeck Tiny House blog.
As I sit writing this blog post, I looked around and realized that their entire house could literally fit in our living room. And while I have decided that my claustrophobia would make it very difficult for me to live in a tiny house, there’s so much I love about the tiny house mentality.
Catherine and Kacey are entirely off the grid, including internet; I read way too much online garbage. Catherine and Kacey spend most of their time at home outside; I sit in front of the computer. Catherine and Kacey have to be cognizant about items they bring into the tiny home to stay; I keep a lot of things “just in case” I might use them at some undetermined time down the road. Overall, the tiny home mentality is a much more intentional way of living, and one that could probably benefit many of us who live in slightly-to-vastly larger houses.
Catherine and Kacey (and Gus!), we are so thankful you invited us to document your Bay Area tiny house! It was a breath of fresh air. Our visit to your tiny house and watching the sun set over San Francisco were experiences we will always treasure.
