Thinking Big, Building Small: Filmmakers Document a Movement by Taking Tiny House on the Road

8:45am Nov 26, 2014
Christian Parsons and Alexis Stephens.

Filmmakers Alexis Stephens and Christian Parsons are the individuals behind Tiny House Expedition. They're encouraging community members to Think BIG, Build Small. In 2015, the couple will embark on a documentary adventure, taking their newly built tiny house, a vehicle, and cameras to document the tiny house movement across the country. They'll be visiting tiny house villages for the homeless and communities using tiny houses for neighborhood revitalization. In between, Alexis and Christian will engage with the curious.    

The duo is getting a little help from their local sponsor Habitat for Humanity of Forsyth County and fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas, but they need you as well. The two will be holding Community Build days December 6th and 7th. Join Alexis and Christian and help them construct their home, enjoy some BBQ, and engage in a dialogue on the subject of tiny houses. The couple anticipates finishing their home in January of 2015 and hitting the road soon after.

You can follow the adventures of Christian and Alexis on Twitter and Instagram.       

They recently stopped by WFDD's studios (see slideshow), and Bethany began by asking Alexis to tell her more about their project and just how big (or small) a tiny house is.
