Andrew – My involvement in building and cabinetry goes way back to my childhood days. Designing and building cabinets, tables, and night stands in my dads shop. My dad taught me how to use hand tools and power tools at a very young age and my imagination went from there.

My love for carpentry stayed with me and transformed into my later years to where my passion evolved into home remodeling and all phases of home construction. From there I went to creating floor plans, designing kitchen and baths well as building them. I’ve always had an interest in small home living.  Looking back,  I think it was the uniqueness of managing and living in small spaces.

When the recent tiny house movement came into existence it really piqued my interest and inspired me to develop ideas and lead me to designing my own tiny houses. Next I got together with my partners in our construction company and in a short time I had their complete interest in building tiny houses. So we decided to end one company to form another.  And that was how American Tiny House was born.
