Co-Founder & COO
Born and raised in London, Gencaga has always been fascinated by the form and function of structures, good design, and intentional living. Working construction during summers in secondary school, he gained the fundamental knowledge of what has become a lifelong passion for building, carpentry, the art and science of designing and crafting a home, and the Do-It-Yourself ethos.
Gencaga began re-evaluating his life, re-establishing his values and cataloguing the disparity between his intentions and actions. The principles of Mindfulness, self-reliance, self-awareness, debt-free living, sustainability, community, and intentional living became the driver of behaviour. He began to cultivate his life so that the most important components were brought to the forefront of daily living instead of being relegated to free time. He knew it was time to dive head first into becoming a full-time designer. And during this time, he discovered the relatively nascent tiny home movement.
The philosophy behind the tiny house movement (desperately needed Affordable Housing, making great quality design and craftsmanship attainable to many people, intentional living, community, etc.) drew him in and inspired him to devote his working hours to furthering its cause. Gencaga has chosen to translate that philosophy and his own into Tiny House Pro.
“The idea that having less space and stuff can create room in our lives for more important things is an appealing one.”
