a journey undertaken for a particular purpose


THE Logo3

Inspiring & empowering people to think BIG & build small through documentary storytelling and direct community engagement  (and having fun doing it).


We are, Alexis Stephens & Christian Parsons:

  • Adventurers at heart & storytellers by trade 

  • Filmmaker duo & ordinary couple embarking on an extraordinary expedition across the nation in our tiny house on wheels

The Plan:

Build a tiny house on wheels & take it on a 24 month cross-country expedition.

The Purpose:

Document the tiny house movement & community at large across the nation and emerging tiny house communities. Telling the stories of diverse tiny house people and the inspiring grassroots projects and how they are trying to make a positive impact in their communities.

These vibrant grass-roots projects creatively address modern housing issues and the need for sustainable living through tiny or micro-housing. Embracing innovative & alternative housing solutions for a variety of purposes from villages for the homeless, to neighborhood revitalization to urban infill in cities with little to no quality, affordable housing and so much more.

We want to spark community conversation, share resources & inspire positive community building through more micro housing projects which provide an economically & environmentally sustainable housing solution for the everyman & the homeless alike.

There's power in storytelling, and our goal is to contribute to a ripple effect of positive change through tiny housing advocacy. We seek to help with the mainstreaming of tiny houses of all kinds, a much needed broadening of the modern housing spectrum.

We are travelers, nomads, alternative dwellers. This does not keep us from experiencing community. In fact, our community experience is incredible intimate and rich.

We are weaving a community network across the country— not defined by geographic boundaries but made strong through shared experiences, personal connections, open hearts & open minds.

For us, the community experience is where the magic really happens; amplifying the benefits of tiny living to provide a more connected community experience, more sustainable and more quality attainable housing for all...oftentimes through a lot of good ol' fashion sweat equity and connection with your neighbors & local social entrepreneurs.

It's all about living consciouslyliving simply and living in harmony with our surroundings to create more abundance on personal & community levels. 

Less truly is more!

Think BIG. Build Small.
