What clients say about Lyons’s custom home designs and home renovations

“Over the last eighteen years residential architect Michael Lyons has helped us during three large home renovations as our needs and lifestyles have changed. Each time he’s been invaluable in keeping the integrity of his original design as well as giving us specific use spaces. The most recent was the addition of a sunroom, master bath and master bedroom renovation into a beautiful master suite. It is the space I would call our “sanctuary”. When the doors are closed, the work and the worries of the world stop on its threshold. Thank you!”

Mike & Morganna Harwood, Corsicana, Texas


“We hired Michael originally after purchasing a home he had designed a few years earlier. That made sense to us — we liked his prior work and wanted to build on that. As we considered a significant build-out of our outside space – a porch, cabana, arbor, pool, etc. – Michael masterfully helped us enhance and expand the design concepts of our house to encompass an excellent outdoor living space. Now, we’ve hired Michael yet again as we have a need for additional space in the house. Nothing speaks of a satisfied customer like repeat engagements, and Michael is working on his third engagement for our property. We trust his judgment, his instincts and excellent architectural skills.”

Timothy & Samantha Durst, Dallas, Texas

“If I were building or remodeling my own home, Michael would be on my “dream team”. I’ve worked on several projects with him and he is always completely on top of things. He asks me questions that I’ve never been asked by an architect in my 18 years working in this business. I know his eye for detail guides him in completing every project. I’m always happy to hear he’s the architect the homeowner has chosen.”

Janet Bottomley, Antique Floors Inc.


“Architect Michael Lyons designed both of our homes. If a third is in the future, we would not consider using anyone else. Our starter home, under 2,000 square feet, was a contemporary house on a cul-de-sac. We had more storage space and open space than houses much larger than ours. One of our favorite qualities that Michael possesses is his concern for traffic flow. Michael is an expert at creating homes that people can move around in and be comfortable. Our second home (also on a cul-de-sac) is Country French and on the opposite end of the home design spectrum. Michael was a delight to work with and we felt his ability to diversify styles shined through. We feel each home he designs is a project he takes to heart. One immediately knows that his homes have something special, from the way they look, to the way they make you feel when you enter. He truly loves what he does and so do we!”

William & Debbie Calley, Richardson, Texas


I have been privileged to work with Michael Lyons over the past ten years. Working with a dedicated architect such as Michael is paramount to a satisfied client. Michael has the wonderful ability to understand a client’s own distinctive style and then transform it into an exceptionally beautiful home.

Michael and I have worked together on many projects including both new construction and renovations. When I have had the opportunity to work with Michael from the beginning of a client’s project, I felt the coordinating of architecture and interior design served our clients with the best possible results.

Michael’s attention to detail is especially appreciated by clients and designers alike. He can create a great room as well as a cozy intimate space with polish. I particularly value the way each design is complimented by beautiful custom doors and windows. His appreciation of nature inspires many of his designs bringing the outdoors scene into the living quarters. This respect for the environment translates into sustainable sensitivities. My clients have been overwhelmingly happy with the final results of Michael’s architectural design.

“Michael, I bet your ears have been burning…we can’t stop talking about how unbelievable the architecture of the new guest house is. Every detail has been considered. You did an awesome job – just awesome.”

Maloree Banks, Owner, Banks Fine Art


“Residential architect Michael Lyons has designed two houses for us and as well as a home renovation/remodel. We appreciate his attention to detail. One of Michael’s professional abilities is that of supervising his work from plans on paper to house completion. Details that only an architect could recognize are important to follow through all the way to the end…and Michael does that well.”

Barbie and Gary Coleman, Plano, Texas


Michael was a pleasure to work with. He was quick to grasp our desires for our house and translate them perfectly into a home that suits our family’s needs and entertaining style beautifully. He worked closely with our builder and Michael’s attention to detail made the difference in the outcome; we could not be more pleased!

Harriett and Charles Gibbs, University Park, Texas


“Dear Michael, Just so you know, I am hosting my ladies golf group in December because “….everyone is dying to see the inside of your beautiful home!” I know they’ll love the inside even more than the outside. Feel free to gloat… you deserve it!”

Judy and Carlos Tolosa, Las Colinas, Texas
