He is a veteran of modern architecture, using new and innovative building technologies and embracing the concept of form over function long before the style became entrenched in the Dallas area.  Michael understands the importance of

Building a home had been on my bucket list for years. After seeing a friend's house that was built by Classic Urban Homes, we decided to go for it. From the outset, we were very impressed by Michael's experience level, his knowledge base, and the seamless process he had put in place for his clients. Each challenge we faced, (and yes, there will always be some challenges) Michael stepped up with a calm demeanor, creative solution, and quick wit to work through any issue. Both he and his seasoned crews were skilled, accommodating, and a delight to work with. As opposed to the previous horror stories I had heard about building, I don't think we could have had a more enjoyable experience. Every morning I wake up and wonder when I'll stop marveling at the beauty surrounding me in our new home. It hasn't happened yet.
