Mike's Thinfill Story

Why I Thinfill

My name is Mike Benkert and I am an Architect and Developer based in Cincinnati, Ohio. My passion for designing, developing and building Thin Infill Homes began back in 2004 when I first stepped foot on a thin infill construction site as a Humanity Volunteer and from that experience I went on to become involved with Thin Infill Home projects in Cincinnati and around the country as a volunteer and professional in roles ranging from designer, to developer, to construction manager and green building consultant.

In 2015, I completed construction on my first personal Thin Infill Home dubbed the 'Starter Home 2.0 project' in effort to create a contemporary, affordable residence in the context of an established walkable neighborhood, and more recently in 2018, construction wrapped up on my second Thin Infill Home project, which was designed, developed and sold as a LEED Gold Certified Market Home.

Now my Thin Infill Home Mission has grown to sharing the knowledge, skills and experience I've gained by developing ThinfillHomes.com as an Online Platform to Help Homebuyers & Builders Transform Thin Infill Lots into Extraordinary New Homes of their own.

Thank you for visiting ThinfillHomes.com and being a part of this exciting new endeavor!
