“I have been working the construction business since I was 11 years old,” says Mike Miller, founder and owner of Top Hammer Construction Corp., headquartered in South Salem.

“I grew up doing the work and loving it and founded my own business in 1978. I have been a design and build contractor ever since.”

Miller’s current project nearby involves a large addition over a two-car garage, designed to serve as a game and exercise room.

“The house itself is on a beautiful piece of property,” he says. “The style of the 3,500-square-foot house is contemporary, and it was built in the 1970s.  It’s on three beautiful acres, part wooded and part open.”

Miller started work on the project in late November and was scheduled to have it completed at the end of last month. “It’s a beautiful site with great landscaping,” he says.  “The look of it is rustic-contemporary and it blends very well with its surroundings.”

Miller and his crew complete 10 to 20 projects a year, ranging from weekend retreats to large mega-mansions. “We do renovations and also build anew,” he says. “Growing up in the business, I have a real love and feel for it and enjoy making sure all my details are correct. Victorian is my favorite style of architecture because of the amount of detail involved.”

Whatever the style, he never loses his keen interest in the business of doing the best possible work for his clients.
