This couple works on movie sets, where Chloe serves as a stylist and Brandon as a carpenter. Typically the couple moves around a lot to take new jobs. So designing and building a portable tiny house on wheels made perfect sense for them.

Brandon said, “We could expand our job search to anywhere in North America, and we would never leave home again.”

Once they knew they would be building a tiny house they began collecting unwanted scraps from movie sets. And nine months and $10,000 later they built their amazing tiny home. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

We love when we find people who are out there really living their dream and making things happen!

I want you to meet John and Amy of Tiny House of the South.

They are building a 24 ft tiny house on wheels. Why? So they can live debt free, travel and to live the life they dream of.

It all began for them in 2010 when Amy saw Jay Shafer’s blog that inspired them to build a tiny house on wheels of their own. The sheer beauty and simplicity of the whole tiny living idea was fascinating to Amy and soon, John, too.

“Once she stumbled across the tiny house movement, Amy realized that it could be a way to build a better future. Her conviction for a simpler way of life was the infectious catalyst to start living the tiny dream, and now she works to share that dream with anyone who will listen.” – Tiny House of the South

They attended a hands-on workshop with Dan Louche of Tiny Home Builders. And by 2013, they began saving and planning to build the ultimate tiny house on wheels for themselves.

The tiny house is not done yet but we can continue to follow the progress on their website and Instagram.
