Documenting the Legalization of Tiny Homes from the Worlds most Travelled Tiny House with Alexis Stephens and Christian Parsons – #012

Alexis Stephens and Christian Parsons are the darlings of the tiny house movement. Their little house has been featured in countless news stories, a children’s book, and if you’ve attended one of the large national tiny house events, chances are you’ve seen it in person!

They are also documenting the movement, through the multi-part Living Tiny Legally documentary series. As a result, Alexis and Christian are connected to the pulse of the movement and what’s happening in it.

As the most traveled tiny house (currently around 40,000 miles), Christian and Alexis are in a unique position to document how well these little houses hold up to the stresses of life on the road. I’ll as them what has worked in the house, and what they’d do differently if they planned to build another moveable house for long-term travel.

Today my guest is Jody Brady. In 2014, after living in a series of traditionally scaled houses, Jodi and her husband Bill decided it was time to “right-size” their living space. They designed and built our tiny home in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia, and the've been living tiny for two and a half years. 

In this interview, we get into what it’s like to go tiny as a couple at retirement age, but who certainly aren’t “retired” in the traditional sense. We’ll talk about what “rightsizing” is and how you can get rid of things that you no longer need that are standing in your way.
