We are a young couple living in Cape Town trying to find a different way of living life without lots of possessions and lots of debt. We are embarking on an adventure to build a home from shipping containers and repurposed, up-cycled materials. To see more of our thoughts behind this decision, read our first post here.

If you are on Instagram, follow our progress: @smallerhouse_biggerlife.

Cameron is a rock climbing guide by day but is also passionate about building, renovating and planning houses that use space well. He is the practical brain and driver behind this operation and will be building it all himself.I (Sophie) am a photographer and love all things visual – I will be documenting the process and giving my input on design, layout and decor. Our baby, Mika, is a German Shorthaired Pointer puppy who is full of life and energy and is obsessed with playing fetch.

When we aren’t building our home or working, we love being outdoors, by the beach or most often up a mountain, either hiking or dangling from a rope.

We are really just figuring this all out as we go but if you would like to get in touch to offer any advice, ask any questions, or check out our project, please drop us a line:
