Founder of MAC Custom Homes

Michael A. Collings  - Mike had a lifetime career in the building industry. He started building homes as a teenager, working as an apprentice under a framing contractor, he gained the knowledge and skill set needed to become a carpenter. As time went on Mike found he had a unique talent in carpentry and he continued to grow and learn all that he could, eventually owning his own framing company in Northern Michigan.  As his knowledge for the industry grew so did Mike's passion for building quality homes. This led him to become licensed as a General Contractor and founded MAC Custom Homes in Northern Michigan, and the Greater Grand Traverse area. His creativity and attention to detail has established a legacy that lives on in every MAC Custom Home built today.
