At the age of 17, Mike expressed interest in becoming a builder to his Dad, Ray. Ray taught Mike every aspect of construction from framing, to building cabinets, finish carpentry, and concrete work, the list goes on. Mike became the youngest FHA approved builder in the state of Idaho. Having the greatest teacher and mentor one could ask for, Mike not only learned the trade, but was instilled with incredible work ethic and integrity by his father.
Mike then moved into commercial construction. Building projects such as Idaho Athletic Club in Nampa, numerous retail centers, medical and professional offices. Over twenty five years later, Mike is still fulfilling his dreams in McCall designing and building homes.
