Our Story

Howdy!! We are Tyler and Lindsey of @lindtyland on Instagram. We started building our tiny home a while ago so we could/can live a GRAND life together.

Building a tiny home has been an amazing experience! Building our home has made our dreams become reality (having a tiny footprint, yet a big life).

We have constructed the lives we want and as part of that we would like to help you construct the life you want too!




Our Approach

What are you doing in life? What are your goals in life? Are you stuck? Have you read a book within the last month? How many hours a week do you spend at a job? How many hours a week do you spend doing things YOU want to do?

At Vivarium, we specialize in TWO things. Training the mind and changing environments.

We're going to give you the tools to control your life. This adventure will not be easy. At times it will suck, you may want to quit, you will question habits, you may worry if others are judging you. At times, you may want to choose the easy route. We can help you learn how to break bad cycles, monitor your own actions and get the life that you want!!

Together we will:

-set plans to achieve your goals

- work towards developing a new relationship with yourself and life

-understand your weakness, so they become strengths

-learn how to minimize your life, MAXIMIZE YOUR HAPPINESS.

Our philosophy is simple: as soon as you start to take control over your life, you can be happier and live a fuller life.

Assisting you in happiness is the most important job we have...helping you build your home is adding icing to the cake!

Meet the Team

The people who make your business go and our philosophy function behind the scenes with customer service.
Why? Because people want to know who they're doing business with. It's a human thing.

Lindsey McIntyre

Founder & CEO

Lindsey has always enjoyed working with people. After undergrad she worked as a pre-school teacher until landing a job in psychiatry research that predominantly studies the neurological effects of addiction and abuse.

Lindsey has a BA in psychology with an emphasis in Neuroscience and is currently enrolled in M.S. courses at Washington University in St. Louis, MO.

Fun fact: Lindsey lived in Morocco during undergrad to study the Arabic language and culture.

My specialty includes working with women, especially women of color! Additionally I specialize in working with women who have children, to develop the parent-child relationship. I use science to help you achieve your goals.
