Thanks to US-first Movies and Shows for sponsoring a portion of this video. Look around now at us-first.info 🌲 We've Escaped to the Wilderness & We're Building our Home at a Cabin in the Woods. Today we take you along for a full DAY IN THE LIFE episode sharing what a typical day looks like for us up here in our remote Canadian cabin.

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!! Now that we've lived remote for over a month we've established some daily routines we wanted to share with you all... but there really is nothing routine about living in a construction site with many different projects on the go 😝

How Did We Get Here?
Abandoning our Van in Africa bit.ly/2Kff0HT
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 😊
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.

Hi late watching this but you guys use divide and conquer too much with the wrong meaning and its driving me crazy. Divide and conquer is a reference for roman tactics (and modern politics) where you make your enemies fight amongst themselves so its easy for you to fight them each on their own when they are weaker. Originally coined by Julius Ceaser himself!its not for when you split the tasks between you in order to finish them faster. Fyi 😉

A little trick with fridges is to hang an unused tea bag in it before you store it. You will not have any mould issue. It acts like a desiccant.

Got four weeks of your videos to catch up on. Lockdown here in England had generated a lot of work for me! I never had Eamon down as a trainee car thief! What about Eabec as a cabin name? I need to work on that..... Much love to you both.

I'm starting to wonder what was the point in building the new van, especially as it's barely been used since completion and now going to be stored away for 6 months. Especially if next year you're able to get Trinity back.

Well, the hope was to be able to travel North America this year but Canada has advised against inter provincial travel and has lockdowns most of 2020 ... plus the Us/Can border remains closed so there wasn’t much travel in the van to be done

Just an idea here, because you've got the old windows... especially if they are aluminium framed as most windows from the 70's are, and trust me aluminium leaches cold into the house like you wouldn't believe.(we used to get actual centimetres of Ice on the less heated rooms' windows INSIDE the house every year... until Mum put her foot down, and Dad said, 'Yes Dear." You could take the glass out of those old windows, use glass paint and turn them into 'stained glass' images from your travels. Then you can hang them around your place and have happy memory smiles everywhere you look... Or, you could use the views from your cabin and either sell them, gift them to family/friends or do a unique 'give away' on your channel that no-one else could possibly have as the images are unique to Eamon & Bec. By the way, I am Canadian and grew up in the mountains in ranch country, the youngest child of a newly divorced & single mother in the 1970's... So yes, I know Canadian Winters in the Sticks, Sub-Zero Fahrenheit Temperatures and Snow that Means Business. Actually the only positive thing about the layers of Frost and Ice on my bedroom windows were the beautiful patterns the feathery fractal build up of the various layers made... So pretty, but nicer outside the house, eh? You asked about names for your Cabin/House... I don't know the name of the lake yo're on, but you could call it E.B's (insert name of lake here) Castle. 'Beemann Coda' is an option which takes all the letters in Eamon and Bec to make the name... I like to think your home is your castle, so you could call it 'Castle Beemann Coda' because it's your home/castle and together you are Beemann Coda, which has both of you in it, but gives no indication of exactly where you are.
