Mike Hutsell

Mike earned a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Design from the University of Colorado Boulder where he studied architecture, urban planning and landscape design. Before graduating from CU, Mike worked on the design for a neighborhood food co-op and was an intern at Barrett Studio Architects in Boulder.

Today, Mike provides computer-aided drafting and drawing support for HighCraft’s experienced team of licensed architects. He produces many of the detailed renderings and plan views that help clients visualize their new project before production begins.

“I really like the type of work we do for clients at HighCraft and the level of detail we put into every custom, high-quality design.” – Mike

LIKES: Accurate drawings, the Tiny House movement, working outside, accessible design for the elderly, and his lovable dog Jack.

DISLIKES: Inferior building materials, driving in heavy traffic, and cookie-cutter buildings that look like they were designed by a robot.

More than meets the eye:
Mike, the son of a meticulous trim carpenter, grew up watching home improvement shows and drawing floor plans at the tender age of seven. He’s also a diehard gearhead. When he’s not at work, Mike enjoys spending time at the speedway or swapping out the transmission in his grandma’s old Dodge to get it ready for the race track.
