Mike is the owner and operator of The Coastal Cottage Company.  Fresh out of college, he moved to the Outer Banks and has called it home ever since.  Mike, along with his wife and two children reside in Kitty Hawk, NC.

Mike’s career in the residential construction industry began back in 1994 when he opened York Residential Design. Since inception,  he has been responsible for developing architectural plans and developing construction details for nearly 300 Outer Banks building projects. From 2005-2007, Mike assisted a local Structural Engineering firm with their foundation and construction detailing. These documents included steel fabrication drawings, foundation plans for FEMA house relocations, marine construction details and structural bracing design and details.

Feeling that his design talent and construction knowledge would be highly beneficial to the customer, at the beginning of 2009 Mike decided to become more involved with the construction process. In 2010, he began working with his long time friend, O.C. Fulcher. O.C. is the owner of Fulcher Homes, Inc. and holds one of the oldest contractor licenses on the Outer Banks. During his time working with O.C., he was responsible for architectural design, job site superintendent and project coordination.

Mike prides himself on his ability to think outside the box and to develop solutions to issues and problems which might arise during planning and construction. He is mechanically minded and often develop creative solutions to engineering and construction issues. He is highly skilled, well organized, creative and budget conscious.  Mike has the knowledge and experience to make your next project a success.
