Couple Quits Day Jobs, Builds Quaint, Tiny Home On Wheels To Travel The Country

When Guillaume Dutilh and Jenna Spesard quit their jobs two years ago, they decided to go big – by going tiny.

The two built a 125-square-foot “tiny house” (185 square feet if you count the loft) on a 20-foot-long trailer, latched it onto a pickup truck, and turned North America into their playground with a massive (and ongoing) road trip.

In the past five months, Business Insider reports the two have put 10,290 miles on their odometer while touring 25 states and parts of eastern Canada along with their dog, Salies. They have plans to visit at least 11 more states — and that includes a trip to Alaska and back.

“We enjoy the new freedom this lifestyle has afforded us,” Spesard explained to The Huffington Post in an email. “We get to travel all over the country and go on new adventures almost daily. We work online and from the road. North America is our backyard!”

Of course, building a tiny house is easier said than done. This particular project took more than 1,000 hours of labour (not counting research), required more than 6,500 nails, 8,000 screws and cost $29,328.

And it’s not without some inconveniences, either. The two hit a laundromat on a weekly basis, and there’s no room for a bathtub “for the occasional relaxing soak,” Spesard said. Overall, though, “it hasn’t been difficult for us to adjust,” she added.
