British Columbia’s Salt Spring Island has always been big on character. From its views overlooking the Strait of Georgia to its rugged mountains and driftwood-dotted beaches, it’s no wonder that artists and other creative types flocked there in the sixties to establish an alternative way of living. To this day, many island businesses still accept the island’s own local currency, the Salt Spring dollar!
Adding to Salt Spring’s character is this delightful tiny house owned by yoga instructor Rebecca Grim and built with the help of carpenter Rudy Hexter. Dubbed “Keva,” it was created with love, patience, and heaps of the island’s independent spirit.
