Chris Miller

Owner & Licensed Contractor

One of Chris’s favorite quotes is, “Leave the world a little better than you found it.” (Just ask his kids!) This core belief translates directly into the inspiration for creating his design|build construction firm. Whether building a home, developing a beautiful piece of land, or working with his team, it is with the intent of thoughtfully creating something meaningful and sustainable.

Chris has always been passionate about building things. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin–Madison with an Engineering degree, he then began a career in manufacturing and business ownership, while also building a family, and building beautiful homes as a side pursuit. Eventually, he chose to combine his passion for building things with his commitment to people and community, and thus devoted himself to “leaving things a little better” and creating Miller Marriott.

A member of the Metropolitan Builders Association (MBA), a general contractor and a business owner, Chris has a discerning respect for architecture and keenly crafted spaces. His reputation is built on the timeless character and quality of his work. Finding the right words to describe his work is often described as, “It is just something you feel.”

Chris has an affinity for the beauty of natural materials, like the “patina” of a wood floor, cedar shakes, millwork, masonry fireplaces, and bringing in the outdoors with windows, porches, and sunrooms. Known for his fierce loyalty and love for his family and friends (and dogs), Chris has an appreciation for life and likes to keep it simple: walking 9 holes, listening to music, a great sourdough, a good Bourbon.
