OFF-GRID LIVING IN CANADA | Van Life to Cabin Life

Preparing for a cold, off-grid winter in our van. We'll be living in a van while we build our cabin in the woods🌲 For a limited time get 25% off your first order of custom, vegan hair care Thanks to Function of Beauty for sponsoring today's video!

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!! This week we are one step closer to making it official but my goodness are mortgages, home inspections, and contracts a full-time job 😴 . Hoping to get living by the lake soon but as we wait for that we prepare our van for the Canadian winter ahead. Living in a van in winter has never been our favourite so we hope that we will only stay in the van for a few months at the cabin until we've insulated our new tiny home.

    Is a home inspection not standard procedure in Canada? We always get a home inspection when buying a house in the US

    Interesting that it’s considered controversial to have a home inspection where you are located. Where I live it’s required unless you pay cash for the home, and even then it’s still fairy standard to have an inspection first.

    Inspections are not controversial. It’s standard anytime you buy a property. At least in the US. You should always have one done. You should never not have one done.

    Such exciting news! Congratulations! Nothing better than lake front property. I know. Enjoy nature and try not to disturb any natural occurring growth on your frontage. There is some good advice on that on the web. Are there loons on the lake? Remember aquatic animals need access to the land around the lake, like beavers, ducks otters etc. You have what looks like undisturbed land. Look forward to seeing what you do with everything. 🌅 You are smart to have a home inspection done.

    My Dad and I had sooo many plans for me to redo a van, but back in 2016, my mother got breast cancer, my sister had a miscarriage, and then got pregnant again, then suddenly as we were dealing with her high risk pregnancy and moms cancer, and then Dad suddenly passed away from cancer. I found the love of my life in 2017, and married in 2018. We’ve now been on several trips together and wanted to make a van. Now here we are 4 years later, my sister is pregnant with her 3rd baby (another high risk) and my moms doctor just found another spot again. So plans are being putting on hold again. Waiting on tests currently to see if the cancer is back... I’m just saying cherish the moments together, with Bob, and family in general. Watching these makes me miss my Daddy even more and wish he could be here. I love seeing the happiness and love between you guys and your family!!! Definitely helps my heart feel happy watching you guys during this crazy time!

    The diesel heater exhaust needs to the installed so that the hole in the exhaust is pointing down so that the water can drain, if its not possible then you need to drill some drain holes in it for the water to drain or you could find it rusting out very soon
