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!

The True Purpose of Our Tiny House Journey is Three-fold

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.

We want to help you embrace simple, intentional living to create a fulfilling life and home centered around what is most important to YOU.

Documentary Storytelling & Community Education

Our video work provides instant access to the tiny living movement, from swoon-worthy tiny house tours, thought-provoking documentaries stories that showcase the fast-growing trend toward simple, sustainable living that values experiences and relationships over things. 

Follow us to watch, and join us for thought-provoking tiny life events.

Advocate for Acceptance


Our goal is to help create more social & legal acceptance by providing a better understanding of the diverse people living tiny and the many uses of tiny houses. Visual storytelling, education, and local action (that's where YOU come in) have tremendous power to inspire positive change.

Together we can make a BIG difference!
