Hi, we’re Jake & Kiva! At a cross-roads in our late 20s, we decided that a tiny house would be a step towards a more meaningful lifestyle. The need for a customized space, along with a desire to learn, influenced us to take the full DIY route… designing from scratch, and building with our own hands. At the time, online learning resources were limited. We thought it might be interesting for others to see the process unfold, so we started a YouTube channel to chronicle the project. Tiny Nest was born. Positive feedback on our videos encouraged us to continue and expand our educational resources. We now have a website with SketchUp 3D assets to compliment an extensive set of informative videos, and we’re soon to launch a virtual reality touring system that will allow anyone to step inside a whole lot of tiny houses to browse and get ideas, from anywhere in the world, using the smart-phone that they already have in their pocket. We think that tiny houses and simple living can have far-reaching positive effects on the state of the world today, and we want to do our part to help spread the knowledge we’ve gained throughout our journey, and to make it easier for others to follow in our footsteps.
