Having a tiny home doesn’t mean you have to be confined to one spot. Although the web is full of photos and video tutorials about creating and living in refurbished shipping containers and small-scale homes of all kinds, these creative tiny home dwellers got a bit more creative and figured out how to combine their tiny home dreams with wanderlust — and the results will have you yearning for a mobile life on the road.

Their setup allows the couple to situate their home in a semi-permanent fashion, complete with a porch and steps out front, but it’s trailer-bound build allows for relocation whenever necessary.

Tiny House Giant Journey
Jenna from @tinyhousegiantjourney is somewhat of a legend in the tiny house movement, and her story is inspirational on a number of levels — primarily because she up and did what we all want to do: quit our job to travel the world.

She left her job in 2013 and built her tiny house on wheels from scratch. She’s since been all across North America, Alaska included, and documents her entire journey on her website.
