Our Story

Southern Sky Homes was created in 2004 while owner, Tom Stenzel, was building single family homes in Virginia. He continually received repeat requests from families wanting a custom, reasonable, but exceptional home. A lot has changed in the housing market and consumers don’t always want the biggest home in the neighborhood with the most upkeep, but the desire for integrity and quality remain. The portfolio of happy consumers allowed his team expansion into North and South Carolina where Tom’s legacy continues as a licensed and insured residential and commercial contractor throughout NC and SC. The Tiny House on Wheels (THOW) addition began as a “fun project” blending years of custom home building, commercial building integrity into a product that provides freedom of movement, harmony with nature, and an eco-friendly footprint. Today, Southern Sky Homes is focused on THOW – and enjoys hearing all of the wonderful accounts of satisfied tiny homeowner.


Southern Sky Homes recognizes that your dream is just that – yours. Your home is YOUR abode and your place of belonging. Custom construction highlights ensure that each THOW provides customized features, while the integrity of the product remains steadfast.
