Mike is the “dreamer” who dreamt up the idea of Movable Roots. Mike has an extensive background in all aspects of residential home building and has always had an eye for design. He has also been a firefighter paramedic for over 20 years and has a true passion for helping others whether that be in an emergency situation or helping them build their dream tiny home. Mike actually thrives on the challenges associated with custom built tiny homes. His motto has always been “Jump and you will find out how to open your wings.” Mikes big dreams and design knack coupled with his passion for knowledge and creating are truly contagious when you meet him.
John is the “planner” who made the Movable Roots dream a reality. John also has a background in residential home building from framing, cabinetry and build management. He has always had that entrepreneurial spirit and for the last 15 years John has run a successful business slinging staplers and college ruled paper. John has always enjoyed building high quality products and his motto has been “if we cannot do it right than why are we doing it”. John’s grounded business ethics and passion for doing things right are what will ensure Movable Roots is around for years to come
Meet Some Vital Team Members
Nikki keeps the office on track and Mike’s crazy schedule in order. Nikki’s background is in sales and marketing, and she brings that much needed feminine touch to the designs and staging of our flagship builds. Nikki runs all of our social media outlets and is the first point of contact in the customer's journey with Movable Roots. Her willingness to go above and beyond in all things is the glue that keeps The Big 3 together. If she is not in the warehouse, you will find her teaching yoga!
We are very lucky to have Darryl on our team. He is a true craftsman and can pretty much do any task in the entire build process. However, he mainly focuses on finish work as well as our flooring and tile. He worked for a log home contractor for many years and has even built a few homes for himself. If Darryl isn't working in the warehouse he is either fishing for redfish or helping his dad on the family farm.
Tim has been with Movable Roots since the beginning. He started with us as a part-timer working on the weekends with Mike and John on the Lee (our second build). Tim has been a carpenter for 20 plus years and can work circles around people half his age. He enjoys the challenges associated with creating functional space in our tiny homes. When outside the warehouse you can find Tim "turning wrenches" on cars or grilling up some steaks and seafood!
