Taylor Stout

Project Manager

Taylor Stout joined the Magleby team as an Assistant Project Manager for Estate Homes and has quickly proven his acumen both on the business and construction side of the operation. He graduated from UVU where he received a degree in Construction Management and has his  Utah Real Estate License. Taylor already holds a bachelor’s degree in Communication from Dixie State University. Taylor grew up in the construction industry helping his father with various jobs, including projects that specialized in excavation, concrete, and framing. In 2015 he and his wife built their own home in St. George UT—completing about 90% of the work on their own. They then completely remodeled their current home when they moved north to join Magleby Construction. This “hands-on” background helped Taylor place in the top 10 in the national Skills USA competition in Carpentry in 2018. Outside of construction, Taylor enjoys being outdoors either camping, wakeboarding, or snowboarding. He loves spending time with his beautiful wife and his new baby boy. He has family both in St. George and in Boise that he spends as much time with as possible.
