Daryl Nieto and the Meaning Behind the Name
I like when some serious thought goes in to what is the meaning behind the name of a company. Take Daryl Nieto, he has formed a home building company named Anchorage Lakeside Homes. This name is derived from the storied history of sailing, in that, when sailors would drop anchor in the “Anchorage” to rest, relax, and recoup, they would find a warm place to recover, like home. This name is most fitting in the place he has chosen to work his craft, Carlton Landing. Our tiny slice of heaven is located on the shores of beautiful Lake Eufaula where you can leave the city and all the hustle and bustle behind. Or go a step further and choose to live this life full time!
Like us, Daryl Nieto was in search of something different and when he found it, he definitely knew it. Maybe it wasn’t exactly what he was looking for when he got here, but he could see the vision of what this place will be and wanted to be a part of it. He came out here to work for another builder, but has since decided to leave his own mark on Carlton Landing by building some beautiful homes. He has partnered with Austin Tunnell (who will be featured in the future), of Building Culture, to offer wood frame construction, as well as, the mass wall construction Austin learned as an apprentice under Clay Chapman. It’s hard to please everyone, but I think they have a good plan for building homes in Carlton Landing.
The Other (most important) Partner
Daryl is married to a sweetheart of a wife in Aimun. She is a laugh a minute and always a smile on her face kind of girl. She figured out Daryl’s love language pretty quick……..food. He was bragging on her cooking ability to me the other day and I can’t wait to try her Thai (hint, Aimun, hint). Maybe even a feature on Front Porch Family Cooks? The laugh meter would be off the hook if we added another goof ball to the mix.
There are sacrifices, throughout life, that have to come to be able to chase dreams. She put her dream chasing on hold, by giving up a sweet HR job in the city, to move to the country and be a Mom so her husband could chase his dreams. I like hearing her enthusiasm in supporting Daryl and the life that he is after for his family. Leaving your family and your home in the city isn’t easy, but moving to a place like Carlton Landing and having a good group of people around you makes it much easier. We are happy to call Daryl and Aimun friends and look forward to their little boy joining the roaming pack of random kids you will find in any given empty lot around town.
I enjoyed sitting down with Daryl to get the real skinny on who he is and what he dreams about as a builder out here. Thanks for taking the time to read and watch!
