Adventurous Couple Quit Their Jobs and Built a Tiny Mobile House to Travel Across the Country

Guillaume Dutilh and Jenna Spesard are inspiring examples of what can happen when you decide to take the leap and follow your dreams. Two years ago, the couple were living in Los Angeles working as an engineer and an executive assistant for a movie studio to make ends meet. Guillaume had always loved photography, and Jenna wanted to become a writer, so they decided to quit their jobs, build a tiny house to travel the country in, and pursue travel journalism while embarking on the adventure of a lifetime.

The couple sold almost everything they had to fund their project. After exactly one year and over 1,000 hours of extensive work, their dream home was finally complete, and they were ready to hit the road. Together with their dog Salies, Guillaume and Jenna have spent the last five months criss-crossing 10,000 miles across the US in their 125-square-foot house, traveling everywhere from Florida to New York City to the Painted Desert in Arizona. Their cozy abode may be small, but it has everything they need, reduces their carbon footprint, and allows them a higher quality of life without costing an arm and a leg.

Now, the couple is still cruising around the US in their mobile home, writing articles, taking photos, making videos, and hosting workshops to support their nomadic lifestyle. To keep up with their adventures, check out their website Tiny House, Great Journey.
