Guillaume Dutilh and Jenna Spesard stopped on Portland’s Eastern Promenade this week as part of their “Tiny House Giant Journey.”

The 135-square-foot house – excluding the sleeping loft – is attached to a Tumbleweed trailer and took a year to build.

The couple started their journey on Sept. 2 from Shelbyville, Illinois, traveling through the eastern United States and Canada. They plan to travel south, then west as far as Anchorage, Alaska.

Dutilh and Spesard quit their day jobs and make a living working as a blogger and photographer.
