This is the story of Spencer, the tiny house builder who founded Rough Cut Tiny Homes out of Conway, South Carolina. It all started when he was 15 and saw a picture of a tiny house on wheels. That was the moment where he knew it was something he wanted to do.
So he started building his first tiny house at age 16. He was fascinated by it and loved the construction process. So he took the money he earned as a part-time bus boy to build a beautiful 28ft tiny home. Today, more than 8 years after it all started, he is 23-years-old and runs a business building tiny homes for others. So far, he has built 9 tiny houses with 2 more that are in construction. Below you’ll find a recent THOW he built that was shipped out to California.

Our Interview/Transcript with Spencer
I am originally from California but have lived in South Carolina for 16 years. I am 23 years old. I became interested in tiny homes when I was 15 years old and I started building my first one when I was 16 years old in high school. I saw a picture of a tinyhome on wheels and just knew that it was something that I wanted to do. I just found it fascinating and I loved construction. My intent was to build one for myself and live in it. So, I took my money working as a bus boy part time and built a 28ft tinyhome.
I lived down a busy road at the time and people became interested in it and wanting to purchase it. I now build tiny homes on wheels for other people now. It’s very satisfying being able to build a custom tinyhome for a client. I love it! It is now a full time job. My business is called Roughcut Tiny Homes. I have built 9 tiny homes on wheels and am starting 2 more tiny homes this week. One is a 36ft gooseneck and the other is a 32ft tag along. Both homes are going to Acony Bell Tiny Home Community in Brevard, NC. I have sent my builds to clients all over the country- Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, North Carolina, and even California.My past few tiny homes have taken about 8 weeks to complete working everyday. It’s about 700 hours start to finish. However my first tiny home took me over a year to complete by myself working on it on weekends.
