Vince has been working in carpentry and woodworking since he was 15. In 2000, he earned a degree in Furniture and Design from the Maine College of Art (MECA). While at MECA, he began commissioned work in furniture, cabinetry, kitchens, and built-ins. Throughout art school, Vince also worked for general contractor John Gillespie in Falmouth. Since 2004 Vince has been self-employed.
Vince is interested in building high-quality tiny houses because it is essentially a compilation of fine furniture designed for fit and function. Although he has extensive experience in carpentry, Vince would describe himself first as an artist. He is also a Navy veteran. During his military service he was stationed in Japan, and Japanese aesthetics still greatly influence his design work. Following the military, Vince enrolled in Business Management at the University of Maine and after 2 years shifted his focus to art as he realized his passion was design work and fabrication.
In 2006 Vince moved back to his hometown of Orono and built a house on the road where he grew up. With a significant customer base in Southern Maine, he continued to work in furniture design while developing his own business, doing work in everything from general framing carpentry to custom cabinetry. Vince watched the trend of building large homes with low-quality materials and anticipated that a demand for small high-quality homes would soon follow.
For Vince, the invigorating challenge of designing a tiny home is determining how all essential home components will function together both visually and practically while still looking natural. All the same systems in a normal house—heating, plumbing, electric—must fit with little to no wasted space.
All of his tiny homes will be designed with a theme and named after Maine counties. Next up: Vince is building the Aroostook tiny home, inspired by a traditional Maine lodge. Custom orders are welcome. Customer references and a portfolio of Vince’s design work are available by request.
