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 SPRING with you this week... we can see the light at the end of this long, dark and very VERY cold Canadian 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:

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.

  • 💛 both of you guys!! always bring a smile to my face, love the podcast as well. This is a huge THANK YOU to BEC!!! I finally found jeans I can afford and actually fit. Bonus shop in the comfort of my home!!!! Thredup is amazing and im so grateful for your info. Hope you guys are doing ok, good to see you staying busy. Winters up north can be hard on a person mentally and physically. (moved south over 10 yrs ago for that reason) fun can be had but cold and snow make the short days even shorter sometimes. Stay positive, real and keep eachother number ONE! Your both amazing

  • When you buy your kitchen make sure to get a sink with an integrated draining board! I really don’t understand why over the pond you don’t have draining boards but disgusting absorbent mats! Even with an under mounted butler’s (farmhouse) sink you can have a wooden draining board at the side made out of marine grade wood with grooves to drain the water to the sink.

  • amazinnnggg guys, although me and my partner both thought you were going to paint the wood on the ceiling fan in white, it would contrast the black spray job nicely.. just some food for thought ;-) the white paint/stain could go on lightly so it would still show the wood veins(partner works with wood floors) he mentioned this! looking forward to the new windows!!

  • To cut Lexan safely reverse a plywood blade maintain constant speed on the circular saw measure plex sheet mark with water marker at each mill edge. Take masking tape and mark your cut. Take your drywall square and clamp it saw table of the saw plate directly over the cut. Use the drywall t to give you a perfect straight edge.

  • I unsubscribed over Lee, now I am never watching another video over your supporting her disgusting treatment of Max. I hope you learn how to be loyal and appropriate to all humans. She did him wrong in so many should have been less biased to the ugly human.

  • Everyone says that assembly ikea furniture is a drag, but personally I don’t feel its fair, assemble furniture is a drag yes but at least ikea furniture come with easy to follow instructions. I have tried to assemble stuff from other places with so crappy instructions you cant tell left from right.... now that truly does sucks.
