About Us

For 40 years Connor Mill-Built Homes has developed a custom panelized shell construction system which allows homeowners and builders around the country a system to create quality homes with design integrity. While our focus is traditional design our build capabilities complement all styles. This system offers our customers and their builders access to our skill and expertise no matter where they live. This panelized system includes pre-cut and pre-built components, as well as essential reproduction architectural elements.

Early American Colonial Homes are an endearing part of our heritage. Colonial homes are efficiently designed with a sense of functionality that is rich with detail. Our business builds new (old) colonial homes, replicating the proportions, the scale, the styles and especially the details. We design them to accommodate today's modern lifestyles and amenities and build them using practical methods. We then package them in kit form to be shipped anywhere in the world.

Connor Mill-Built Homes creates a custom home package for each client utilizing panelized wall construction, pre-cut floor and rafter systems, pre-built trim elements and pre­built interior elements. Also included are windows, doors, roofing, siding, flooring, interior trim and the list goes on.

Our customers range from first time homebuyers to seasoned second and third homeowners; from building on a budget to luxury homes built from Maine to California, and represent all age groups. Our buyers find us through the internet, in the pages of regional and national magazines, and recently in a 10-episode series, The North Shore Farmhouse, on the beloved PBS series THIS OLD HOUSE, as well as through editorials and articles on our company.

Connor Mill-Built Homes builds between 50-80 homes a year. We are a rapidly growing company, and in this robust building economy, we want you to be a part of that growth!

Our design team uses computer aided software for all phases of design, conceptual through shop drawings. After signing off on preliminary plans and elevations we provide permit drawings to be stamped locally as required and then follow-up with a full set of on-site construction documents, contract and shipping schedules. We treat each of our homes as a custom design by making requested changes to catalog plans or designing from scratch. We research your local and state codes and engineer and design to these codes.


We will build all reproduction specialty items required for our homes. We build our own specialty windows, such as Palladian windows and "spider-web" sashes, we build cupolas to send as one unit ready to be craned into place and we build decorative gable fans and custom entries from an inspiration, or any print or sketch.

NEW! Bridport Barn Timelapse Video!

We've been covering the Bridport Custom Barn build for a few weeks now, and we said we had a big surprise for you, so here it is! We set up a GoPro camera at the job site, and captured this entire build via timelapse; one picture, every 60 seconds, all day throughout the entire project! The result was over 7,000 pictures and an incredible documentation of our build process. Featuring original music from Vermont's very own Snake Mountain Bluegrass Band (which includes CMBH Founder & CEO Mike Connor), we hope you enjoy this one-of-a-kind look at a Connor Mill-Built custom build!
