It's demolition time baby!! After nearly two months of living at our cabin in the woods we tackle some large projects that... well, we don't have the skills for 😂 . Roofing, windows & more!
We've Escaped to the Wilderness & We're Building our Home at a Cabin in the Woods

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 6 weeks up here we are really settling into the slow pace of life and the peace and quiet. And this week we tackle some projects that we really don't have the skills for... roofing and windows! 🌲 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 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 😊
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.

You young people are doing a really good job of renovating your cabin in the woods with the help of your families! Hope you get a lot of happy years living in it when not in your van. It will be nice for you to have a comfortable "pied à terre". Tim should not have any trouble finding someone if he's looking. He's a really good looking man and a wonderful worker. I hope he meets a really good woman.

In Germany there are three important rules: 1) The arm that carries food to the mouth is not allowed to touch the table 2) The food is carried to the mouth and n o t the mouth to the food 3) As long as one hand carries food to the mouth, the other hand should be upon the table if you are not masturbating :-))) In Germany! Perhaps not elsewhere!

Why is this house made of cardboard kind of thing? What happens when it rains? 🙆😣 Doesn't that railing go bad when it rains because it's wood? I am so confused 😕

@Eamon & Bec I'm not a contractor or a plumber but wouldn't it be a good idea to insulate the pex that was run under the deck for the outdoor kitchen? Pex does have flex in it so it is less likely to burst than traditional plumbing but the water in it will still freeze and potentially cause damage I would think.

Hey there!! I think you need a Spud Bar. It's my favorite for cutting roots and splitting rock. About 25 pounds of steel and it is a great leaver too. www.hooverfence.com/seymour-digger-tamper-barged-steel-6-ft-long-chisel-point

Be sure to use heavy gloves when you use a spud bar, to prevent blisters.
