Melissa Meares


As an avid traveler and DIY enthusiast, Melissa Meares loves finding diamonds in the rough and discovering beauty in unexpected places. After purchasing a 1970s home with her husband Kyle, the pair has been renovating the space into their dream home. With a brand new laundry room, in-house library, and various upcycled thrift finds, Melissa and Kyle were ready for their next challenge. Last year, they bought a Mercedes Sprinter van from a concrete flooring company and gutted it to create the base for their home on wheels. Now, they're customizing and building out their dream camper van!
