ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (KDVR) — A convicted felon who promised to build people their tiny dream home has instead filed for bankruptcy and faces an investigation by the Englewood Police Department.
Matthew Sowash and his attorneys did not return phone calls or emails to the Problem Solvers, but FOX31 spoke to multiple people who fear they could be out of their life’s savings.
“I really hope he’s not a fraudster,” Samara Nait, a 24-year-old mom with a 3-year-old daughter, said.
She was the first customer the Problem Solvers interviewed back in September.
At the time she was living out of her car because the 400-square-foot tiny home she paid for in full, $64,000, never arrived in Paonia by Sept. 1.
“It’s super stressful. I mean I feel like I have no other choice but to just trust that he’s going to come through because I don’t even want to think about losing that money,” Nait said.
Status of Sowash’s tiny home business
The day before FOX31 interviewed Nait, she showed up at the Holy Ground Real Estate warehouse in Englewood, where the tiny homes are built, to ask for her house or a refund.
