People love working with Lifestyle Homes


From Jennifer & Bill King

Bill and I became aware of Mike Arnett and his LIFESTYLE HOMES company in the STREET OF DREAMS show in West Linn in 1994.
We bought property in 1997. My husband interviewed several builders and found Mike to be the overall best fit for us. We wanted our home to be a reflection of our dreams and style and not a builders house. My husband wanted to be very involved in the build out.

Mike allowed for Bill to be a part. We worked with Mike for about a year and a half. Throughout the process, we had many change orders.
Twice Bill and Mike had a difference of opinion and both times they worked through it with respect and a successful decision.

We became friends, good friends throughout the process. At our open house, we honored Mike with pride and grateful emotions.

Mike is a honest and good man. One that holds to the codes of ethics and runs a solid business with integrity. We wish you good luck and hope you too have a successful business relationship with your builder.


From Lauren Beer

I would highly recommend Michael Arnett to be your contractor. We had a great experience with him in our major remodel of our home and we love it!! Prior to using Michael we had a smaller house in SW Portland we had done some remodeling to and was not as easy as an experience as we did with Michael.. Michael was spot on in his budget and as we went along with any upgrades etc. he was so consistent in letting us know if we chose added cost. I honestly will recommend him to anyone. Good luck!! His time line was spot on as well.

From the owners of Ellerty House

You are professional and a great partner to work with! We recommend Lifestyle Homes to anyone who wants a first class project or home built.

From Patricia and Alden Stewart

Thank you for all of your work on our behalf. Have I mentioned how pleased we are to be working with you - you install confidence!


From Doug Campbell

We contracted with Lifestyle Homes on two projects: whole home rehab/remodel and a large woodworking shop with a garage.

The house rehab/remodel was a challenging project because the bones were not great and $ resources were limited. Add to that the challenge of a recently retired couple who were new to Oregon.

Given the unknown variables and the bad bones, Mike delivered a good product for a fair price completed on time.

The shop was a success even though I was new to the avocation.

We recommend Mike to you as the general contractor. He is a good businessman ready to solve whatever problems arise.
