'Living Tiny Legally' Docu-Series Explores What It Takes to Get Tiny Homes Legalized
"To give people a behind-the-scenes view into the process, American filmmakers Alexis Stephens and Christian Parsons of Tiny House Expedition recently debuted the first installment of a three-part docu-series called "Living Tiny Legally". They talk to tiny house owners, policy makers and other organizations about what it takes to legalize tiny homes. Watch the first part on YouTube."
Postcard from the 2016 Tiny House Jamboree
"Though the tiny-house movement has been gaining steam, many logistical uncertainties remain, such as where people can legally park and live in them. While no single list of locations is available, part one of the documentary series Living Tiny Legally (2016), screened at the Jamboree, can serve as “an educational resource for tiny house advocates and city officials.” The filmmakers and traveling tiny house couple, Alexis Stephens and Christian Parsons, plan to add more resources and segments to the documentary in the future."

"Shake off the mold, and redefine what personal success looks like to you — and have fun doing it," Stephens says.
