Mike Mahoney

Mike graduated from Penn State with a Bachelors Degree in Forest Products and a Varsity Letter in Men’s Lacrosse. After college, he was offered a position with a major lumber manufacturer in their Southern Yellow Pine operations. Mike progressed to dry end superintendent where he was responsible for the kiln drying, planning grading and shipping of over 10 million board feet per year of grade and dimension lumber.

Mike’s job brought him close to Charleston South Carolina. Throughout college he enjoyed working as a carpenter for the contractor who had built his family’s home. Finding inspiration in the wonderful structures of downtown Charleston, he decided to follow his heart and pursue homebuilding. Mike worked as a project manager for 4 Charleston area homebuilders managing the construction of over 100 houses.

Mike feels that there is a distinction between a contractor and a builder. When he went out on his own, Mike incorporated his college studies, his project management experience, his carpentry experience and his passion for building homes. Mike operates as both a general contractor and a framing and exterior trim contractor. For over 20 years his focus was Kiawah Island. With each project Architecturally designed and Engineered. Complicating the size and high level of details in these homes, Kiawah is in both an earthquake and hurricane building code jurisdiction. Adding certified welder to his skillset, Mike and the employees of Blue Moon have developed a reputation for accurately executing architectural details, meeting schedules and adhering to budgets. To date, Mike and his team has framed, erected steel and sided over 650,000 square feet of homes. No major call backs or structural issues. Blue Moon has has built and renovated dozens of homes.

Over the years Mike has worked on National Register Landmarks, light commercial buildings and custom subdivision homes. This architecture spans federal, colonial, arts & crafts, shingle style to modern concrete and steel residences. However, his primary focus has been the high quality custom home market, and now that focus is based in the Lake Placid area of the picturesque Adirondack Mountains of New York State.  Mike’s client focused approach combined with the exceptional depth and breadth of experience delivers a satisfying working relationship and a home of beautiful detail and longevity.
