The Little Cabin Company

New to Fernie this spring, The Little Cabin Company manufactures unique cabins that have been designed and built to current BC and Canadian National Building Code standards and are highly insulated to keep them warm in the winter but cool in the summer sun.

The first model, “The Cobby” is a single-room cabin perfect for “glamping,” office space, a home studio, spare bedroom or meeting space.  Retailing at $24,995 + tax, The Cobby is equipped with low voltage dimmable recessed lighting, two internal electric sockets with usb ports, double glazed windows, tongue and groove Douglas Fir flooring, cedar siding, and an external power socket. For power, The Cobby plugs directly into a standard power supply and can also be supplied with solar power.

For more information and the chance to visit a cabin in person find them on Facebook, visit their site, email hi@thelittlecabincompany.com or call Rachel Cline on 250 946 6322.

Fernie Syrian Refugee Family Sponsorship

Fernie locals are fundraising to sponsor a Syrian refugee family, and it's a perfect time to showcase the contagiousness of humanitarian efforts. Syrian refugees in Calgary recently launched a donation drive to help displaced Fort McMurray residents. “Of all the Canadians here now, these people are most attuned to what it means to lose all your stuff, your house, your memories, even your loved ones. They have lost their entire country,” stated Saima Jamal, of the Calgary-based Syrian Refugee Support Group.

Learn more about the gifts refugees are bringing to Canadian communities at the Facebook page “Fernie Syrian Refugee Family Page-Building a Bridge.” If you can help, please contact them directly here, and encourage others by sharing this page. Also consider donating via GoFundMe or nelsondiocese.org. Tax receipts are provided for donations over $20 and links can be found on their FB page. “Thanks for your support,” says Cheryl Sherry, organizer.
