A Team Dedicated To Helping You Make The Right Decisions For your Home

Hi, I'm Michael

I was checking boxes instead of checking in with myself.

I left a position in the trades to obtain a degree in Biomedical Engineering from U of M. Once inside the walls of the great institution, I swore I would never touch another wood floor again. Afterall, ‘getting a college degree is the only way to become successful.’

If we pay attention, life has a way of guiding us. Not towards what we want, but what we need. In the final analysis of my academic success, publications, and tech startup adventures overseas, I had a profound realization:

My degree was for everyone else.

Here I am, five years into this pursuit that has catalyzed personal growth like I had never imagined. Initially, it was the perceived freedom. Then it was the personal connection. Now it is about modeling integrity, providing great service, passing along skills to the next generation, and building something bigger than myself.

I can’t wait to work with you!

Hi, I'm Christopher

From bodywork on vehicles, to landscaping, I’ve always enjoyed working with my hands. One winter while landscaping was slow, I hopped in my dad’s truck to learn the flooring trade. That season of change quickly turned into a career.

I enjoy each project. Like cars, there is always a new model or floor plan to work on. And like landscaping, you get to see the design come together each day.

Seeing the final product, and knowing it’s been done right, puts a smile on my face and hopefully my clients.

The Koby Craftsmen Mission

There are few things that impact the look and feel of your home as much as flooring. We are committed to guiding you through this process with not only aesthetics, but performance in mind.

We believe that communication is key in any project, and we will work closely with you throughout the process to make sure that your vision becomes a reality.

We also believe in quality craftsmanship, which is why we pursue education and training through our memberships with the National Wood Flooring Association and the Builders and Remodelers Association of Greater Ann Arbor.

Finally, we believe in treating our customers with respect and integrity, and we will always operate with your best interests in mind. We want you to love the way your space makes you feel, and we want to walk away from the job knowing that it will last.
