Jim Layton, Owner
Jim is a Falls Church, VA, resident and the founder of SpaceMaker. As a veteran of commercial real estate in the DMV, Jim understands that storage space is at a premium in this area and that people are paying a top dollar to store their goods in traditional self-storage. And any cost-effective solutions are a long drive from home! Knowing that there is a better, more cost-effective way to store or move, Jim founded SpaceMaker along with his brothers, Mike and Tim, and Tim’s wife, Jena.
