Here it is friends: the new adventure we've been dreaming and saving for since we first met 8 years ago. We've always envisioned moving into the woods by the lake and building our dream tiny cabin as a home base for us to come back to in between our international travels. We cannot wait to have a place to call our own!! Sharing our first days of life up at our cabin in the woods 🌲
Looking forward to all of the home renovations and cabin improvements we'll be tackling this winter!

How Did We Get Here?
Abandoning our Van in Africa
After an incredible 3 years of living, working, and traveling in our self converted Sprinter Van we made the very tough decision to abandon it in Africa to take a rescue flight back to Canada. As it has for all of us this global pandemic has flipped our world upside down. When our Prime Minister announced that he was sending repatriation flights over to Africa to pick up Canadians who were stuck (due to border closures) we consulted with friends and family closest to us and realized that in this time of crisis we should be back in our home country. Halting our dream of driving around the world was a hard pill to swallow which is why we knew we needed a big project to keep our mind + body busy while social distancing back here in Toronto. Enter building an off-grid tiny house on wheels!! But after nearly 6 months, we realized that our dreams of continuing van life across North America in our new van build were not a current reality with the state of the world. So, we've found ourselves pursuing something we've dreamed of since we first got together 8 years ago... a cabin in the woods 😊
Tour the renovations we've done to our self converted sprinter van:
VAN TOUR after 2 years living in our TINY HOUSE on wheels
What's in Our Camera Bag?
Who are we?
We're Eamon and Bec, a Toronto-based couple who live full-time in our self converted Sprinter Van!! SUBSCRIBE for wanderlust travel, behind the scenes of what it's really like to live in a van, and videos all about the yummy vegan food we make + eat! VAN LIFE COUPLE.
Our goal here is to inspire you to chase after your own dreams however big (or small... tiny homes anyone?) they may be! We hope to create a community of like-minded, positive individuals who will grow to love and support one another on their own journeys.

  • I’m hoping y’all will turn this into an air bnb once we all can travel again

  • OMG 😳 You have bought my dream house in the woods! I think when you get settled you could use a couple cats to help you with your mice problem and maybe a chicken coop for eggs and an green house for vegetables? How about a nice swing and hammocks outdoors too? Maybe a lookout platform in a tree? Great job! Can't wait to see the progress πŸ‘Œ

  • Imasing how you work and laught togheter. Thy xou for the video. Oven is mostly placed in the middel of a house or room. So it heats all rooms up. Probebly think about good new isolatet windows. Save a lot of money and time with the heat. As bigger the windows as more heat you lose. Same with high seelings. Greetings from switzerland

  • just watched your insulation going in .. thought i would see where it started .. October ... hmm ... you is going to LOVE spring ... and pancakes ... you are in the maple syrup capital of the world ... and probably have some sugar maple on your property too ... yup harvestable home made syrup ...advanced warning ... be ready for the weight gain ;) be carefull with the fish though check to see if you are on one of the lakes with a lot of man made junk in it ... a good number of them do have some higher levels and you have to be careful what you catch and eat and how much and often too . look up the ministry of natural resources so you get an idea of what you can and cant do around your area... also what you can and cant use for camping shelters .... polyvinyl tarps (plastic tarps) are a major no no and can cost you all of the camping gear in a second ... also when you can and cannot have a fire and what the exceptions are during a fire ban ... (eating) . MNR is the federal controlling body and they set the laws the counties must follow before they add on their own stuff as well ... also 10m in from all federal controlled waterways is always federal land under federal jurisdiction ONLY most of lanarks water is federally controlled

  • Just happened upon your site the other day. Sorry never checked out your van stories. I am finding this journey with you quite enjoyable. Both of you are delightful as well as Bob and I admire how hard working you are. And your upbeat spirits make it a joy to tag along for the ride. Here in my comfy little house in Montana where winter has just begun to introduce herself again I will enjoy cheering you on and sharing your endeavors. My prayers are with you as you build your new life😻

  • Sandra Westley I absolutely agree Don’t move the stove, you only run the stove when’s it’s cold, and by then it will be dark so no views, it’s where it is to centrally positioned to heat all the rooms, you want to sit round a lovely log fire in the winter, so who wants to huddle in a corner.

  • I remember living in a cabin in the woods and the mice were 😜 CRAZY! We put out a bunch of traps and caught 18 in one day! They definitely will find a way in. Steel wool in cracks help to keep them out. Just a little hint for country living!

  • Take it one project at a time. We took over a family cottage 20+ years ago. We've done a foundation, bathroom, roof (twice), windows, plumbing, insulated vinyl siding, and now tackling electrical. The most recent addition was replacing an vintage 70s fireplace with an Osburn Woodstove.

  • Congratulations on your new home. My suggestion to you would be live in it a while before making the "big" changes, and before you make a grand kitchen I would suggest my favorite kitchen is at our cabin it is small, some would call it an efficiency kitchen about nine foot by under eleven foot. Here is a link to a cool old film the talks about "a step saving kitchen" It was fun to watch and gave me some ideas for our cabin Good luck with finishing it out.
