A purposeful company begins with high standards.
David founded New Frontier Tiny Homes to capitalize on his love for design and an incomparable eye for quality craftsmanship. David studied Literature and Philosophy at Furman University while there on an athletic scholarship. After successful stints in both fashion and hospitality, David landed on his true love that now constitutes his work at New Frontier.
Investor and Partner
While working on a triple major in Economics, Chemistry and Physics at Vanderbilt University, Zac Thomas bought and flipped his first investment property. Thomas took an interest in tiny homes for their sustainable, minimalist construction. Thomas partnered with David Latimer and provided the seed investment to create New Frontier Tiny Homes in 2016.
Architectural Designer and Consultant
Taylor attended The University of Kansas where he graduated with his Masters of Architecture. Taylor practiced architecture for three years prior to moving to Nashville to explore a career in construction management. Taylor’s works with David to design our homes.
Originally a father-son project, Eddie Latimer and our Founder, David Latimer built two tiny homes on speculation that they could learn about the market, and hopefully turn a profit in the meantime. David Later met Zac Thomas, who would later invest and bring production building expertise to bare. Soon thereafter, New Frontier was born. Inside of a year, it would have the Alpha, its first fully custom product featured on an episode of HGTV. During this time, David worked at the Entrepreneur Center in Nashville and fortuitously bumped into a to-be mentor, Stryker Warren, a guiding light to the company’s formation and early growth.
Full Court Press!
Interest built over the next two years. More press opportunities. More HGTV. This time featuring the Escher, our second model. We collaborated with Disney to build a new family home for victims of the California wild fires. We presented it to them live on Good Morning America
Land and Expand
We released two models this year; the Cornelia and the Orchid. We launched the Home that runs on Dunkin’ with Smuckers and Dunkin at Home brands, and presented it live in Central Park, NYC alongside Olivia Wilde.
With some wind in our sails, we looked to build our operations and sales teams to keep up with demand from all angles; retail customers, consumers, developers, and Airbnb entrepreneurs. We’re anticipating a very warm reception for our new 24′, $75,000 model, the Luna. Additionally, we partnered with Paragon Builders here in Nashville, TN and have broken ground on Nashville’s first tiny home hotel, Stay | New Frontier.
