VAN LIFE BUILD: Light at the End of the Tunnel

Could this REALLY be our last week of the van build project?! Three weeks ago we moved into our unfinished Sprinter Van Conversion without running water or electricity and each week we inch closer to a beautiful off-grid tiny home on wheels.

After a long 16 weeks of this VAN LIFE BUILD project, we are living in our 170 Sprinter Campervan and are readjusting to tiny living! We are beyond thrilled to have a functioning INDOOR shower in this space and the fact that we have HOT WATER is the absolute cherry on top... but of course, none of this comes without a leak or two 😂 We also tackle the finishing details that will make this home last!

How Did We Get Here?
Abandoning our Van in Africa  https://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!! This is going to be our 3rd time converting an empty cargo van into a campervan and we are both excited and nervous to take on this project. We want this build to be the ULTIMATE OFF-GRID VAN 🚐
