I fell in love with Mobile when I moved here from Birmingham, Ala., in the early 70's to attend the University of South Alabama, and I've been here ever since. I loved the historic architecture of the Midtown and Downtown areas of Mobile so much that I decided I would build my career around classic architecture. Since my college days, I embarked on a long career that includes restoring much of the historic homes in Mobile and in New Orleans' famous French Quarter. From there, I used that experience to design and build new homes in classic architectural style. A trip to Paris in my 20's to begin my study of the architecture there has influenced the path of my life more than anything. I have traveled to Paris for more than 30 years now to immerse myself particularly in the study of stone masonry architecture. In the mid (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) 's, I took a leap of faith and created the DAC-ART Building System, a method of designing and building with "concrete stone" masonry that looks exactly like the beautiful limestone buildings in Paris, New York, Washington, D.C., and other great cities. Like these great buildings, my DAC-ART homes are built to last for many generations, requiring little maintenance and withstanding storms better than any other homes built today. ( (Hidden by Airbnb) "DAC-ART" to see some of my designs.) Great homes are my passion, and if you would like to visit Renee and me in Mobile, I think you'll understand why I made this place my home so many years ago. Because of DAC-ART, my custom home design business, I have clients all over the country, and that gives me the opportunity to explore their hometowns and meet people from their home states in New York, Connecticut, Texas, Florida, California, Wisconsin, Rhode Island, Washington D.C., Tennessee, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Mississippi, to name a few. Exploring other places and cultures is one of the best perks of my profession, and Renee and I would love to share our city with you! Hope to hear from you soon...
