Ambassadors of a Movement
Meet Alexis & Christian
We are Alexis Stephens & Christian Parsons, documentary filmmakers, educators, and advocates on an extraordinary 'Journey with a Purpose' with our DIY tiny home on wheels.
As co-founders of Tiny House Expedition, we seek to inspire others to redefine home and rethink housing through thought-provoking storytelling, resource sharing, and educational events. Humbly, we have the world’s most traveled tiny house on wheels.
Our documentary work includes the acclaimed three-part educational series, Living Tiny Legally.
We also support the tiny house advocacy efforts by serving on the American Tiny House Association board of advisors and Tiny Home Industry Association board of directors.
In 2020, we debuted three series on the SHG Living Network—now streaming on all smart devices. And 2021, our book was released—The Beginner's Guide to Tiny Houses.

Our Original Plan
After falling in love, we built our tiny house on wheels with the help of friends and family. Then we hit the road on an expedition across North America, an intimate exploration of the tiny home movement, namely the diverse people, pioneering culture, and the community experience. Our travels have been a way for us to pursue a passion project and live our values. Experiences and relationships over things, always!
Our Journey with a Purpose
Inspire & Empower
Our sincere hope is to inspire others to redefine home & rethink housing as a pathway to create more sustainable housing options, more meaningful lifestyles, and more connected communities.
Embracing intentional simple living can help you craft a fulfilling life & home centered around your priorities.
Storytelling & Education
Our documentary work provides instant access to the tiny living movement, from swoon-worthy tiny house tours to thought-provoking stories that showcase the fast-growing trend toward simple, sustainable living.

Advocate for Acceptance
Our goal is to help create more social & legal acceptance of tiny homes by providing a better understanding of the diverse people living tiny & the many uses of tiny homes. Storytelling and local action (that's where YOU come in) have tremendous power to inspire positive change.
Together we can make a BIG difference! Join THIA.

"Our journey to tiny houses began with a burning desire to break free from stress and stagnation. We both stumbled across the movement at different times, despite being life-long lovers of pillow forts, cabins, and treehouses.
In 2015, we hit the road on an epic trip across North America to explore and document the tiny home movement. What we initially thought would be a one-year trip became a lasting nomadic lifestyle. And now, a tiny homestead!"
— Alexis & Christian
