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.

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 live our values. Experiences and relationships over things, always!

 

"We are nomadic alternative dwellers. This does not keep us from experiencing community. In fact, our community experience is incredible intimate and rich.  We are weaving a network across the country— not defined by geographic boundaries but made strong through shared experiences, personal connections, open hearts & open minds." 

   — Alexis & Christian

 

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!
