"Always custom, always distinctive, truly yours," is the mission statement of Merv Miller Builder. It appears that it is not just a slogan, but was recently reinforced as a truth when it was announced at the Gala held by the Building Industry Association of Lancaster County where Merv Miller won the Fulton Bank Award for his French Country design home entered in the 2014 Parade of Homes. This is the Millers 4th time winning this prestigious award, along with many other best of show awards as well as remolding awards. The Fulton Bank Award, coveted by the many builders who compete each year in the B.I.A. of Lancaster County's Parade of Homes, is presented to the best of the best homes, built especially for that event.
Merv Miller started his business in 1972. At that time, in addition to building homes, he also built some commercial structures and farm buildings. He worked in Lancaster and the surrounding counties building homes, but sometimes traveled further for his commercial construction projects. In 1983, Merv decided to specialize in custom home building, and started to design his own home designs. Sometimes buyers come to Merv Miller Builder with plans, and Merv builds from their plans. Mostly, people come with ideas and a wish list, and using his ideas and expertise, Merv builds their dream home.
Merv's wife Anna Mae takes care of the company bookkeeping. Merv's son Greg joined the business in 1990 and shares responsibility in the day-to-day operations of Merv Miller Builder. Both Merv and Greg work together on home design and use those skills to enhance the quality and variety of plans they are able to present to a client. Their score of 416 points of a possible total of 418 points for the Fulton Bank Award proves their talent as a team.
Both Greg and Merv work hands-on in every aspect of their business. Their personal involvement is very comforting to their clients, as building without personal attention can be a very traumatic experience. Today, Greg Miller does all the drafting for the company, is a construction manager, and Greg and Merv handle the sales together, Merv is enjoying a lighter load with day to day operations, but enjoys locating the house on the lot with the clients, and all excavating duties.
The awards the Millers have won include:
