PHOTOS: This Couple Quit Their Jobs, Built a Tiny House on Wheels and Hit the Road

Two years ago, Jenna and Guillaume Spesard decided to leave their well-cultivated lives behind for a simpler one, abandoning their high-rent apartment, their careers and most of their belongings.

Jenna writes on BoredPanda about what influenced their decision:

I was beginning to believe I’d never be able to pursue my passion for writing and Guillaume felt the same way about his photography. Then we came across tiny houses. These artistically designed tiny dwellings inspired us to upend our lives and pursue our dreams.

They came up with a three-part plan to be completed in one year. First, build a tiny home; second, travel by car across North America with the tiny house in tow; and finally, create travel portfolios focusing on alternative lifestyles. Jenna wrote, and Guillame took photos.

Six months and 10,000 miles later, our tiny abode has taken us on a wild adventure. Along the way, we’ve met numerous like-minded people who build and reside in small structures such as: tiny homes, tree houses, yurts, homemade house boats, etc. Guillaume photographs these alternative lifestyle pioneers in their innovative dwellings, while I write down their stories.
