Michael North


When I founded North Homes in 2002, my goal was to design and build quality custom homes with unparalleled compassion and personal commitment to our clients.

I grew up on the north side of Indianapolis and I have been around the construction industry since my teenage years when my father started a commercial mechanical contracting company. I interned with him through my college years, culminating with a degree from Purdue University in Construction Technology. After graduation, I worked for a large commercial contracting company for a couple of years giving me much needed knowledge in cost control, scheduling, and building systems. Following my commercial contracting experience, I held positions as a senior project manager at a large fire protection company for 8 years and then co-founded with two partners and ran a semi-custom Home Building Company for 9 years, through 2001, that is still operating today.

Along the way I went back to school and earned my Masters degree in Business Management as well as obtaining my Real Estate License.

I have been happily married to my wife Charlene since 1985 and am a proud father of two children and two grandchildren. When not designing and building excellent custom homes, I can be found golfing, fishing, shooting, travelling, or chasing the grandkids around.

All of these valuable experiences have made me the man I am today and this wealth of knowledge contributes to the success of North Homes.

I am involved on a very personal level with every aspect of the building process. From design, budgeting, estimating, and quality control, I am hands on. Thereby producing one of the finest custom home building experiences in the marketplace. Our clients will never feel like a number at North Homes!
