A home is more than brick and mortar--more than lumber, drywall, cabinets and appliances. A home is a very special place where your life unfolds and memories are made. You deserve a home that's been built to last with unmistakable quality and thoughtful design and built by a builder that truly cares. At M/I Homes, we care. We care about our quality, about design, about community, about our customer. Since 1976, more than 100,000 families have trusted us to build their homes. We look forward to building your new home.
When our co-founder Irving Schottenstein was asked what he thought was our most important core value, he replied, "Always remember to treat our customers right". As a result, honesty, integrity and treating our customers right guide all of our actions.
Design is the cornerstone of the M/I Difference. We don't design for us. We design for you. We conduct extensive research to find out how you live and what you want in your home. That's why you'll see the latest trends in home design in our models and floor plans. Every square foot serves a purpose. Every design feature adds to the function and livability of your home.
Quite simply, a better-built home
To build a better home, we created our own set of building standards. We call them our Whole Home Building Standards. We do it so that you get a home that's more energy efficient and has a lower cost to own and operate. From foundation to rooftop and even into the landscaping, we build them to last.
You care about the planet. So do we. And you care about the money you can save through lower energy costs. That's why we pursue energy efficiency in our homes. It is our practice to wrap, seal, and caulk every home in a weather tight envelope. Then, we have our homes independently rated to certify the energy savings. For an M/I home, you can save an average of 30% over the cost of a home built to standard code. Our ratings even beat Energy Star® targets.
Our Design Centers help you realize the possibilities
After you’ve chosen your floor plan, the fun really begins. The interior design, options and finishes let you put your personal imprint on your new home. If it sounds daunting, don’t worry. To help you, we created StyleSmart. It’s a collection of services designed to help you realize your dream. Our StyleSmart Design Centers are full of the latest home vignettes and newest design ideas so you can see how different combinations of options will look in your home. And our StyleSmart Design Specialists will help you coordinate it all.
We want to make sure your American Dream comes true. We want the whole process to be smooth, efficient and exciting. We bring that attitude to work with us every day. And we're good at it. Since 1976, we've delivered more than 100,000 homes to individuals and families just like yours.
