"I love that, as builders, we are in a unique position to share our expertise to help homeowners maximize the bang for their buck, while making it a streamlined & enjoyable process to add an ADU. We're also working to make these new homes blend seamlessly with existing neighborhoods, while helping address the housing shortage. And behind the scenes, our team is stellar... I absolutely love what I do.

Mike Moore

Co-Founder, Head of Production

Mike is responsible for all aspects of construction at Snap ADU, including design, planning, engineering and vendor partnerships. Mike has spent a lifetime in construction. As a child he helped his parents renovate an 1860s Victorian and a 1920s center hall Colonial... he was hooked. Since then, he has made a career out of construction, working for small custom home builders during high school and college, then on to larger commercial builders prior to opening his own shop in 2013. He is a licensed CA contractor and LEED AP and earned a BS from James Madison University. Mike lives in North County and loves to spend time with his wife and three children doing just about anything that involves the ocean – surfing, sailing, swimming or just posting up on the sand for a beach day.

"The best part of Snap ADU is far and away the people, both inside and outside our organization. Building - especially residential building on an occupied property - is an intimate process. We get to see our clients every day while they see their ADUs come to life. And the folks who make Snap ADU such a stellar organization are just a fun, uplifting, positive group."

Bob Sommers

Head of Estimation & Sales

Bob helps homeowners evaluate options for their ADU project, including design considerations & cost estimation. Bob lives and breathes the benefits of ADU ownership himself and is excited to share his experience and expertise with homeowners. Bob has decades of experience working in small business, construction, and sales in the San Diego area. In his spare time, Bob loves spending time with his wife, three kids, friends and his dog, Baylor.

"The culture, the team, and the client base are all stellar. I want to do this. It is not work. It's like volunteering, but getting paid. We help people and families. One specific thing I love about Snap ADU is the fact that we never take money up front. We always perform work first, and invoice second. It always makes our clients feel comfortable. Oh, and I love Jessica's dog, Willie, who always sits on the couch behind her in our ZOOM meetings."
