About Us

Our story and the foundation for “Movable Roots”  began many years ago growing up  in Nogales Arizona in our own THOW (Tiny Home On Wheels or in our case a mobile home).  In the early years, we learned our work ethic, building knowledge, and how to treat customers from our father.  In those days, Dad was a General Contractor and had a remodeling business named “Cheatham and Sons”.  Our oldest brother, Paul,  was the first son to take up Dad’s craft.  Paul worked for Dad full- time while  we tagged along with our tiny tool bags and hammers  in our free time from chores and school.  This mentoring and “OTJ” training continued through the years to come . 


For the past 20+ years, we have worked together and individually as company owners in all stages of the residential construction and remodeling business. In recent years, Mike and Nikki (Mike’s better half ) had begun researching “living tiny” and “going tiny” themselves.  They were ready to LIVE more (traveling and creating more memories) while freeing themselves from the typical high cost of a mortgage on a traditional home.  Mike and Nikki shared this new-found passion of possibly building Tiny Homes for others with Jonathan and everyone hit the ground running …. Movable Roots was born!  


Movable Roots will bring our traditional home building and remodeling skills into every Tiny Home we build.  These skills will be matched with prioritizing our customers’ needs and an unrivaled time management to ensure we make those build deadlines as promised.  

Movable Roots Team!



Paul unfortunately left this world far too early but he is still with us in many ways!  He was simply a simple man, someone who would love the Tiny Home Movement!  Movable Roots first model home is named “The Henderson” after Paul Henderson Cheatham  RIP 5/20/68-8/20/09
