WHY MILLER?

A company built on education, experience,
and continuity.

Education
A lot of homebuilders are never educated in how to construct a home. They just “fall into it” after pursuing other jobs. Shannon Miller has degrees in building construction technology and business management from Purdue University, and he spent the first five years of his career working as a site engineer for a commercial contractor. His work on projects ranging from the Charlotte Motor Speedway to Uptown Charlotte’s Hyatt Hotel and Blumenthal Performing Arts Center made him very particular about structural integrity, a focus that continued to distinguish his work after he opened Miller Homes in 1992.

Experience
With 25 years of experience, Miller Homes has built some 650 homes – on every kind of site you can imagine, from flat sites to steep sites to basement sites and lake lots that require expertise in soil improvement. You’ll find us equally adept at building on home sites in brand new subdivisions as we are at transforming a home nestled in a historic district, or renovating a bath on the third-floor of a townhome.

Continuity
We have been building in the Carolinas through all kinds of markets and economic conditions, and we’re not going anywhere. What that means for you is that we have a team that works like a well-oiled machine, maintaining control of various aspects of your projects to minimize delays.

If we’re doing a new build for you, we control the site grading ourselves. Miller Homes owns the equipment it takes, from Bobcats to excavators to dump trucks, to remove trees and dig footings to get your project off to a great start without delays. Our expertise makes permitting and tear-downs proceed more smoothly as well. Our admittedly hands-on, “old school” approach means you’ll work with a superintendant who has partnered with Shannon since 1994 and is a trim carpenter by trade. We have built long-term relationships with specialists ranging from our office manager to electricians, painters, plumbers, and roofers. Such continuity is impossible if you work with a builder who gets three random bids and works with trades people they don’t know.

On the other hand, if your project is a kitchen renovation, we believe your interests and budget are best served by using a jack-of-all-trades who can do sheetrock, hang doors, install trim and so on, rather than assembling a team of specialists. It’s a philosophy our customers love because it gets the work done as efficiently and effectively as possible.
