It's the time year again. Flowers are blooming; birds are chirping. And tiny house celebrations are commencing. Long gone are the days of 1-2 scattered festivals per year. Enthusiasts can now choose from a delightful slew of events, stretching from coast to coast. Each one provides attendees with the opportunity to experience a tiny space first-hand, and each has a distinct flavor. You can choose from trade shows, grassroots cultural fairs or festive celebrations.
For the ambitious, now's the time to start plotting your course for an epic tiny lover's road trip.

My partner, Christian and I are traveling tiny house dwellers. Together we’ve been on the road two years for our documentary and community outreach project, Tiny House Expedition. We live, breathe, dream the tiny home community every day. This is our life and our true passion project. We are very grateful to be able to experience this inspiring movement in such an intimate way and to be able to share our exploration with all of you.
