Hi! Welcome to Dreams Built In!

How the Dream Began

We are Ian and Mel. in We sold our belongings, our cars, and our house. Bought a truck and an RV. Then we hit the road. Learning how to navigate towing an RV, homeschooling, and living life on the road all at the same time. To say it was intimidating is an understatement!
