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!! After 4 weeks up here we are really settling into the slow pace of life and the peace and quiet. And this week we tackle two projects that CHANGE EVERYTHING for us up here!!! 🌲 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:

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.

  • Please get some joist hangers at minimum for that deck! Similar to your lean-to they will take some of the weight off your fasteners and are easy to add after the fact.

  • Please be careful and take care of your health, you will have children soon :) When working with glass wool, use protective masks, also with mineral wool. So jumping on it to get more tiny needles in the air is probably a bad idea? It's great to watch you guys, great people, great nature.

  • You know dead trees are important for the ecosystem of your forest right? In some ways they are more important than living trees. Don't just go cutting down trees... Learn a bit about forest management. I like what you are doing but please don't ruin the forest you have there.

  • I'm thinking insulation would have done the trick and a mini split is more environmentally friendly. I get that it is easy to burn fossil fuels, but, it is the wrong way to go in 2020.

  • BEANS ON TOAST? That's too fancy for me. As a kid we had beans on bread, not toast, and if we were feeling ritzy we'd spread on some butter. Who else had beans on toast or bread for a meal when they were kids? Leave a reply.
