Start Here

We’re Ben & Meag — here to help others design a life they love living.

There is nothing particularly special about us, we started this whole bus conversion and tiny living process in 2016 with minimal knowledge of how we were going to accomplish a bus build on our own, or what we would do once we hit the road. Slowly we picked up knowledge, skills and tools over time to create a life trajectory that has continually suprised us, challenged us and provided us with a lot of joy. Everyone’s experience and goals are different, that’s a beautiful thing, but I think what connects us and perhaps what brought you here is a shared desire to live creatively, in a connected, mindful way. Time is an invaluable asset.
