Daniel Waibel

Principal/ Director of Single Family

Dan is an accomplished Sr. Manager and NCARB certified Architect with 30 years’ experience in managing the design and construction of single-family residential projects located throughout the US, incorporating a wide variety of design styles and construction materials.

After graduating from the University of Southern California, Dan started his career in Mammoth Lakes and Laguna Beach drawing unique custom homes located in the picturesque mountains and for the many exclusive communities along Orange County’s coast.  “I’ve had the privilege to work alongside some of the most talented and detailed Architects in the profession and understanding that unique responsibility and passion that comes with designing a personal home for someone.”

Dan has also worked for both large homebuilders such as KB Home and M/I Homes, and smaller ones, managing architectural teams that designed and developed product for a wide variety of markets at varying price points.  With extensive experience in both the field and office operations, he excels at problem solving and operational efficiencies.  “Having spent close to half of my career on the homebuilding side has proven invaluable as I can appreciate the need to balance great design with company objectives and construction realities.  With ever increasing land and material prices, development restrictions, and complex building code or department mandates, it’s always a challenge for a homebuilder to deliver an attractive, cost effective product - on time and at a price that the market will accept.”

“It’s great to be in Orange County, the origin for innovative design and creative solutions, and partnering with RHA on award winning projects.  No one delivers a better product than RHA as great design does sell - builders and developers are embracing this as the public expects it.”

Dan is a licensed Architect in California and Florida and is NCARB certified.
