Richard Miller is a builder that just gets it — at least that’s what the architects that work with him say. The eponymous principal of Richard Miller Custom Homes looks for innovative ways to achieve dramatic modern architecture using the right materials for the job — not just the most expensive ones. It’s a bit of know-how he picked up after decades working for big-name, Fortune 500 homebuilding brands and being one of the 10 NAHB Graduate Master Builders in Dallas.
The more we learn about Miller and the way he serves clients, the more we like him! All the more reason we’re thrilled to have him in our Dallas Builders Association Member Spotlight.
