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."
