ABOUT THE BLOGGER

Jenna Spesard Bio

Hi! I’m Jenna. Not too long ago I was working full time at a job I hated, just to pay the rent. Then, one day, I decided to change my life. I downsized, built a tiny house, and found freedom. Now I’m a fulltime happiness addict with the freedom to travel the world, and I’m never turning back. Building a home on wheels, and becoming financially secure, has taken me farther than I ever imagined possible. I love Tiny Houses, and what they can do for their owners. I hope my blog inspires you to follow your own journey to happiness.

Below are some of my most popular articles to give you a taste of what this blog is all about!

My Tiny House

I built a Tiny House in 2013, and I spent one year traveling around the USA and Canada. I continued to live in it until late 2017, when I met my husband. We now use the house as a vacation home. I continue to live minimally in a small cottage in Seattle. Also, did you know you can now rent my house?!
