Kim Is Rebuilding Her Fire-Destroyed Tiny House

From Dee Williams today (what a nice video!):
"Hey, I hope you are doing well and enjoying this roll toward summer!   Hopefully, I'll see you at the tiny house fair in Vermont... and if not, sometime soon.
   Last summer I sent out an email to try to encourage folks to contribute to Kim Langston's rebuild of her little house.  As you might remember, her house was destroyed in a fire last year.  The cool thing is that this summer, she's going to rebuild!  This is it!…"
