Linsey is Building a Tiny House Eco Village from Adobe in Morocco

Dylan Magaster recently visited Linsey in Morocco where she created a Tiny House cottage and eco village from bdobe brick with the help of Work Away team members. Work Away promotes volunteering, family exchanges, homestays, farmstays, working holidays, travel buddies, language learning and cultural exchange. If you want to travel, learn, and work, check out Work Away.


Assilah Eco Village is located in Northern Morocco. If you’d like to participate in building this eco village, learn more on the Assilah Eco Village page at Work Away. Here’s what Linsey says about herself on Work Away.

I am a 61 year old English woman, settled in Morocco for the past three years. I am creating my own Nirvana with the help of like minded souls of all ages. Presently I share my space with 15 chucks (including rare breeds) , Lila my little Maltese cross, Booby out new puppy guard dog, and Cuzco as well as our potential ‘mouse catchers’ Lulu, NC and Teabag.

I am not an expert in natural building, self sufficiency or eco living, I enjoy working cooperatively, as part of an enthusiastic team, experimenting, and learning together to do the best we can.

Dylan Tours Jenna’s House – Jenna Tours Dylan’s Van

Jenna Spesard & Dylan Magaster have traveled all over North America interviewing folks that live alternative tiny lifestyles. In the two videos below they tour each other’s tiny living spaces.

Jenna lives in a tiny house that she’s traveled in for more than 25,000 miles. She’s currently living in Oregon but spends much of her time these days traveling the world. On her YouTube Channel you can find many (but not exclusively) Tiny House tours and interviews. Subscribe to Tiny House Giant Journey on YouTube.

Dylan lives in a van conversion. The van cost him $2,000 and the DIY conversion was just $3,500. So while his living space is not as comfortable as Jenna’s it gives him the freedom to travel and live the life her wants. On his channel you will find many (but not exclusively) VanLife tours and interviews. Subscribe to Dylan Magaster on YouTube.

Professional Model leaves Beverly Hills to Live in a Van

Dylan Magaster shares an interview with Philippe LeBlond, a professional model who downsized to van life and isn’t looking back.

Beverly Hills didn’t make him happy, so he decided to leave the big house and move into the van and live a life of adventure. Philippe shares gives us a tour of his van and what he’s learned from 3 years of #VanLife in the video below.

Here’s one thing he says in the video:

“#VanLife makes you a millionaire, life-wise. Do it!” – Philippe LeBlond

I think the same can be said about tiny house life! In fact a van can be as much of a tiny house in my book.

Be sure to follow Dylan on Youtube… he meets the most amazing people on the road.

Oh and don’t miss out – follow Philippe on YouTube too. Below is a video from Philippe’s channel.

Below are some photos from Philippe’s Instagram.

Climbing, hiking, exploring. You make your own adventure.

Some sights can only be seen when you take to your feet. Hike on!

OK… who is his photographer? Nice one!

More napping.
