I strive to create a positive experience for the homeowner through all phases of construction. 

I enjoy the challenge of integrating custom details and taking a home from ordinary to extraordinary.” Scott enjoys spending his free time with his beautiful wife Darcy and their daughter Ella. Some of his favorite activities include traveling, cooking, boating, and fly fishing.

Chris was born and raised in beautiful Northern Michigan. His passion for the construction field started at an early age when he was first employed by his family’s construction business in 1995.

Kristal is a longtime resident of Northern Michigan. With a love of organization and attention to detail, she found herself right at home studying Business and Accounting at Northwestern Michigan College.

“I have developed a love of the whole home building process, from first dream inspired prints to last breath taking glances after vacuuming the end construction dust. 

I look forward to working with you on the “Paper side” of your home building process, ensuring to keep you updated and informed from start to finish.

Office Manager 


Kristal has been with Mapleridge since 2010 as the Office manager as well as Director of  Company Safety program and the OSHA Safety Trainer.

Karl Hitchcock is a project manager for Mapleridge Construction. His daily responsibilities include design, estimating, scheduling, and communication with sub-contractors and clients.

Karl has been working in the residential building industry for nearly 20 years. He started off as a draftsman and framing laborer and worked up to running his own framing and siding company. Karl enjoys all the details that go into a custom build and being prepared for them early on in the project.

Project Manager


He likes to figure out the small details in the framing stage that will be important in the final stages.

Karl moved to Traverse City from Estes Park, Colorado. He enjoys spending time outdoors in  Northern Michigan with his wife, children, and dog. 

Worked up the ranks in my Father’s construction company starting at age 10. I’ve run my own company and have been managing projects for over 25 years. I’ve also built 5 personal homes in my spare time over the past 30 years doing most of the work.

The building process has always intrigued me and I enjoy making it a pleasurable experience for clients. One of my favorite projects was an “extreme home makeover” for a pro NHL player that we completed from start-to-finish in 10 months and it included a 2,600 sf work-out facility.

Project Manager


My objective will always be to deliver top notch project management, professionally executed construction, great solutions and projects delivered on-time and within budget to completely satisfied clients who enjoyed the experience.
