This Couple Has Been Traveling for 2 years in Their 12sqm Home

A look into this couple’s great journey with their little dwelling


A lot of people would say that couple Jenna and Guillame had the perfect set-up—they worked high-paying jobs and could afford to go on luxe vacations—the only problem was they weren't happy with living the corporate life. So they decided to take the plunge and quit their respective jobs, pursue their passion of making a travel diary (writing for Jenna and photography for Guillame), and build their own mobile home.

The couple had no experience in construction, but with their learn-as-we-go attitude, they were eventually able to put up a charming 12sqm (around 125 sqft) abode. It is complete with a kitchen, a bathroom, a living space that can be converted to a dining area, and a lofted bedroom. The stairs and seating can also double as storage, and its skylight and windows provide natural light and ventilation. They have reduced their carbon footprint, too, as the tiny home runs on fuel, propane, and electricity. 

The wandering couple has been travelling for over two years now, and through their journey they have met a lot of like-minded people who have also chosen the simple life. Since 2014, the couple has traveled more than 20,000 miles around the US and in some parts of Canada.
