Dale Quye – Project Manager
Dale’s experience with building started in the summer after 5th grade when his dad and mom decided to have their first custom home built in Michigan. They went on to build two more by the time he entered high school. Dale spent many summers working in construction as well as taking a building trades class in his junior year where he studied blue prints and planning in the classroom before heading out into the field to do a turnkey build on a new home.
After moving to California at 18 he started working for a framing contractor and really started to learn how to construct homes. At the age of 29 he had his general contractor’s license in the state of California. Since then he has enjoyed nearly two decades working on many new homes, additions and remodels. Going on his third year with HomeWrights Custom Homes he looks forward to many more years partnering with individuals and families who want to build their own custom home.

John Gifford – Project Manager
John began working with his father in construction projects at age 5! Home additions and remodeling has been a family affair from the 70’s until as recent as the summer of 2019 when John and family did a complete remodel for a family member’s first home. He started framing custom homes in the Vail valley in 1990 and in 1997 earned his AAS in engineering. Shortly after that began working towards his Bachelor in Civil Engineering at the University of Colorado. There he was hired as an intern for a city municipality and became a project manager of capital improvement projects.

In 2009 he worked with a masonry contractor as a senior project manager in residential and commercial stone, stucco, and brick. After emersion in over 30 subdivisions and 20 large commercial projects his career took a turn back toward general contracting when he joined the HomeWrights team in August 2019. John’s clients find his diverse experience and easy going style reassuring in the complex world of custom home building. In his free time, John loves boating, watersports, and anything outdoors!

Bryan Fujimoto – Project Manager
