Jenna Spesard was an executive assistant before she decided she did not want to live her life chasing after paychecks. In 2013, Jenna quit her full time job to begin a career in travel journalism. With no prior building experience, Jenna and her husband began building a tiny house on wheels from scratch. A DIY project they thought would have take no longer than 4 months ended up stretching over a year. After a year of fixing and designing, they finally moved out of their 20-feet long house in Los Angeles to embark on their new nomadic life. Jenna now works as a travel journalist and blogs on tinyhousegiantjourney.com.
Guillaume Dutilh is a former industrial engineer turned photographer. After inheriting his father’s camera in 2011, Guillaume began exploring the world of photography, taking photos of almost everything that caught his eyes. With expenses slashed after he moved into the tiny house he built with his wife, he quit his job and pursued travel photography. His photos can be found on photoxplorer.com.
Together, the duo has traveled with their tiny house in tow to over 30 U.S. states and 5 Canadian provinces. Their year-long road trip experiences and challenges have also stirred up interests both online and offline, garnering over 30 features on press, including The Huffington Post, Daily Mail and Business Insider.
While they are not traveling in their tiny house, the couple can be found hosting their tiny house construction workshops in town and interviewing other alternative lifestyle pioneers for their book.
