Michael C. Daily, President
Michael C. Daily, PBD, President and Professional Residential Designer, has worked in the construction industry for 25 years. He began his home building career while living in Hawaii, first working on jobsites and later buying and remodeling homes to resell. While creating plans for the remodels, his interest in design grew, and he moved to Oregon to study architecture.
During his time in the Northwest, Michael also worked for other design companies such as Mark Stewart Designs and Dessen Homes honing his production drafting, structural analysis, and product code support skills. His most lasting influence came from Alan Mascord Design Associates, Inc., one of the nation’s premier, award-winning home designers. While designing with Alan Mascord, they collaborated on many of the company’s top-selling home plans. They still maintain a professional and personal affiliation.
Michael attributes his love for the Santa Fe style of architecture - his specialty - to his extensive travels. Having spent eight years abroad, he grew to appreciate the Mediterranean and Spanish influence of his boyhood home in Litchfield Park, AZ. In September 2001, he opened offices just blocks from that home.
