About Us: Travel and How We Do It

2travelight.com in Bali, 2018

We love to travel! Our mission is to travel light, have fun, try everything and go everywhere. To achieve this adventurous goal we build custom homes. Our company, Mountain Oasis Homes, Inc. is based in beautiful Sagle, Idaho. Ian and I built 6 homes as owner builders (in Hawaii and Idaho) before we quit our day jobs and created Mountain Oasis Homes. Currently (March 2020) we’ve built and sold 7 homes and are half way through an 8th. From the very first home in Hawaii we’ve played the credit card game, putting all our expenses on credit cards that earned miles and paying them off each month so we never accrued interest. Ian boasts about only paying for a couple flights during our 6 month, 15 country trip with over 30 flights in the winter of 2017-2018. I also have the most generous parents who surprise us with occasional family trips to awesome places like Egypt and Antarctica. Spoiled? Well, yes.

Our first home in Hawaii. We were living in a tent on site while planning our wedding!

Our second home in Idaho, on Platinum Ridge. We lived here about 3 years as we built it.

Platinum Ridge has a super fine bathroom.

Our current home is nestled on 5 acres of forest. Now that our son has grown and lives on his own it’s the perfect size for us with only 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. It’s easy to clean and we can still have guests.

Our home

We love to travel and we also love to work for ourselves. No Boss means we can leave whenever we desire. If a concert is happening in Denver that we don’t want to miss, we go! And each winter our goal is to get away to warmer climes, and build one house a year to make this happen.
