Here’s what to expect when you design and build with Muffley Dream Homes.
A rain showerhead, a skylight, tile by Daltile, and fixtures by Hansgrohe and Signature Hardware are a few of the Zen elements in this Dream Home master bath.
For Mikel Muffley and Melinda Chandler, The Custom Dream Home Program by Muffley Dream Homes (muffleydreamhomes.com) is a way to help the most discerning of clientele streamline their dream home buying process— from bank to land to architect, interior designer and builder—through one funnel. With projects all over Atlanta going upward of 8,000 square feet and $5 million, these two are busy. Here, we check in with the duo.

What prompted you to start The Dream Home Program?
MM: New construction home sales have always been an area of expertise for me. But after the 2008 crash there was a serious shortage of them on the market. While demand for new homes was still very high, homeowners were fearful of building. I started the Dream Home Program to give homeowners a road map and the structure they needed to succeed at building a custom home. The program takes the fear out of building by making the process transparent and enjoyable.
What can one expect?
MM: When you build through us, you can expect support and transparency. Transparency is the hallmark of the program. Fixed-cost budgets, set timelines and our open-book policy give clients peace of mind throughout the build. Our clients are busy families, professionals, athletes and celebrities who totally rely on us to manage the process.
What are some of the most impressive things you’ve done?
MC: We’ve helped clients design a variety of unique things—from prayer rooms and underground bunker-style recording studios to an incredible 20-foot-high, ultrafast, enclosed waterslide for a bachelor. Modern homes are having a big moment with our clients and, with everyone spending more time at home than ever before, there is a push toward biophilic designs that make a connection with nature and wellness.
