About Us

M. Lahr Homes is a custom home builder specializing in design-build and has built over 100 houses in the Orlando area in the past decade.  We pride ourselves on a collaborative and personal process that streamlines an often overwhelming custom build scenario.  From plan design to the actual build, our team is set up to provide a unique experience; a boutique feel with one of Orlando’s largest custom home builders.  With our size and process comes the ability to offer custom builds at a value typically not available. 


I would highly recommend MLahr Homes if you’re build a new home anywhere in the greater Orlando area. We bought one of their Parade of Homes winning homes in College Park and loved it so much we had them build a new home for us in Winter Park. The quality of workmanship, professionalism and attention to detail from Mike and his entire team make the entire experience memorable. Whether dealing with Mike directly or one of his team members, they have always be reachable, attentive and responsive. I’m happy to refer Mike and his team to anyone interested. Best building experience I’ve had anywhere we’ve lived.

When I was looking for a new home, I saw an M Lahr home for sale and liked it so much I decided to meet with them to discuss how we could work together on a custom home, in the location of my choice. I was completely confident in Mike and his team, and I would trust them again. When my home was finished I couldn’t believe how smoothly everything had gone, since everyone worried me with other nightmare stories about contractors! Obviously there were bumps in the road and a few things here and there that needed fixing, but even more than a year (actually two) down the road the M Lahr team is only an email or text away to help make things right.

We have been in our M. Lahr home 20 months now, and could not be more pleased with the end result, or with the process.  We had not built a home prior; so many people talk about the negative experiences and the challenges of “building” in general.  Our experience with M. Lahr Homes was quite the contrary. At the end of the day, Mike’s name is on each project, and that is 100% how he approaches his work.  He is realistic, honest, and transparent, and has put together a team that is committed to communication and quality work. Each M. Lahr home is “fresh” and unique.  From start-to-finish, this home building team dedicates a great deal of time and attention to design details, holding your hand along the way as you select fixtures, features, and finishes.  And when your project is complete, M. Lahr stands by its work/warranties. We don’t just love the home we are in, we would build with M. Lahr again…and we would not be their first repeat-clients!

My house is still in the process of being built, but I can’t say enough about Mike and the rest of his team. From day 1 until now, they have been incredibly easy to work with, super thoughtful about their designs and they do not skimp on quality of work. What I love is that they include you in important decisions, but when they’re not in contact, it’s because the work is being managed and handled perfectly and professionally. The way they work instills a sense of confidence that everything will turn out just right and as expected. If at any point you have a question or point of confusion, they’re quick to address it and quick to pivot if needed. And when you have a moment of panic (you will) they’ll talk you down because they have it handled. I’ve always heard that building a house is super stressful, but NOT if you’re working with M. Lahr Homes. Exemplary builders and designers. I’m laughing at the negative reviews because if you’re thoughtlessly dropping in a one line sentence about your discontent after building a full home, you clearly didn’t build with this team. They’re amazing
