If you’re sick of working a 9-to-5 day job and are burdened by a serious case of wanderlust, take note of what couple Jenna Spesard and Guillaume Dutilh have accomplished. Tired of being part of the rat race, the duo quit their jobs in 2014, constructed a 125-square-foot tiny home, and now travel North America full-time with their Australian Shepherd Salies.

In the past year alone, Spesard, 28, and Dutilh, 30, have clocked 20,000 miles while being on the road. Their initial goal was to live a mortgage-free lifestyle, and they have definitely accomplished that.

Originally from Los Angeles, the couple realized their full-time jobs were not allowing them to fulfill their passions of being travel writers and photographers. So, they invested $30,000 into building a tiny home and one year later, set off on their Tiny House Giant Journey. Spesard and Dutilh took off in Shelbyville, Illinois, and are now traveling through Valdez, Alaska.

Inhabitat relays that their tiny home was made from the modified blueprints of a Tumbleweed Cypress-20 Overlook. 125-square-feet, the home includes a 60-square-foot loft and measures 20-feet in length and 13.5 feet in height on the exterior.

The 10,000-pound abode is towed with a 2006 F250 6.0L Turbo Diesel CrewCab Long Bed Fx4. Because the vehicle gets 9 miles to every gallon, the family cruises at speeds of 55 miles per hour.

The following video was filmed by Deek Diedrickson of Relaxshacks. In the footage, the comfortable exterior is shown off and space-saving tricks are revealed. Since the video was filmed, the couple has since added an enormous screen with a movie projector, a portable solar system and a Kimberly wood stove to their home.
