Just visited @minarc_design 's Sherbourne Residence in Culver City. Great mix of raw steel, plaster white walls, and warm woods. Icelandic beauty and influence come shining through. #dodla17#dwell#architecture#modern#design
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
Sometimes you see the flowers on the rug and lick them. You're expert at supermans and planking, but that whole crawling thing is above you apparently. You also get up on your wrists like this instead of your hands. Gah, I love you my little weirdo. 😍 #thingsiwanttoremember
SO much fun talking COLOR with @consortdesign yesterday at @dwellondesign ! We had a packed house and spent an hour reviewing key colors to watch out for in 2018 interiors. Stay tuned for more IG stories and a full recap on the blog soon! #dodla2017#dodla
More Scarpa ... display of 'Ritratto di Gentildonna' by Francesco Laurana in Palazzo Abatellis, museum exhibition precursor to Scarpa's Castelvecchia .. more restrained which is rather nice as a contrast to his later and better known works.
Yesterday I visited #dodla17 and there was one standout trend- textured walls. But this- from @coriandesign @marioromanoca just opened my eyes to the possibilities. Take a #CNCmachine to a slab of #corian and this is what you get - unlimited possibilities. Goes to show that by taking old materials and using modern technology to manipulate them in new ways, you can fuse the past with present and create amazing things!!

Today I am feeling a little relieved...I refused to return to painting boats for almost a year. Stubborn right?
I had some crazy thing to prove to myself and I needed to explore other techniques. And while this new approach to a favorite subject matter still has some evolving to do, I am trilled with the result and can't wait to start another...
So...new boat series coming soon!
