Hi everyone! My name is Heather, and I have been renovating and flipping RVs since 2020. I specialize in water damage repair, woodworking, plumbing, and electrical! I've been married to my husband for 10 years, and we have 3 boys together. I love camping, woodworking, vintage Yamaha motorcycles, and fixing cars/trucks!
I get this question all the time. How did it start? Well...it's kind of an amusing story.
I worked in ministry in South Carolina for 8 years prior to becoming an RV renovator. My husband unexpectedly got a job offer in Raleigh, NC, and we couldn't pass up the opportunity to be close to family. I quit my job, trained my replacement, and uprooted my family to NC. And we all know what happened in April 2020...that's right, COVID hit. The housing market was insane, so my family of 5 ended up living with my parents for a full year before we fund a house. During that year, my dad bought a 90s model 21 foot camper that was a total gut job. We renovated it together, and I fell in love with it. He taught me everything I know, and I was so grateful to spend time with my dad again after being away from home for so long. We camped in it one time, and realized a 21 foot camper is WAY too small for 2 adults and 3 kids. So I sold it in 3 days, and made a profit. With that profit, I bought another camper, but this time, a 30 foot bunkhouse (which i eventually sold AGAIN and now we have a 5th wheel, ha!)
Fast forward a few months, I was scrolling through Facebook and a camper popped up for sale for $3,000. I was somehow the first person to send the sellers a message and go look at it. The roof was caved in, but it had great bones. The sellers loved my story, and I told them that I had planned to flip it. I ended up chickening out and not buying it that afternoon. I came up with every reason why "this isn't what I had planned" and "how did I end up here from working in ministry." The next day, the sellers sent me a message and said they felt like God meant this camper for me, and if i still wanted it, they would save it for me. I said "OK God, i'll go where you lead me." I picked it up that afternoon, and it was my first flip.
Fast forward AGAIN to about 8 campers later (whoa, right?), 2022. I was still flipping, loving life, and loving my new shop and all of the room to grow. My Instagram following was still around 1,600 (but I was helping a lot of folk navigate their water damage repairs, so that was totally fine with me). I was at church on Sunday, and our pastor was talking about how people value missionaries and church workers over everyday people (like Doctors, construction workers, etc) when in reality, there is one unified mission field. It clicked in my head: maybe God led me into this because it is my mission field. And then the crazy started....i went from 1,600 followers to over 120,000 followers in a week and a half. Crazy, right?
And that's pretty much where i'm at now. It's been on my heart to expand and help others navigate their repairs, or just turn something old and gross into something beautiful (and i mean, lets be honest, that's what Jesus did for me...oh, the irony). Since, I've branched out into client renovations, and I can't wait to share with y'all how God moved through them...because it's pretty remarkable!
