Michael Lyman - president/owner
Michael Lyman grew up in Druid Hills and has lived in several of Atlanta's intown neighborhoods. Over the years he has developed a respect and a care for these places and is not motivated purely by a growth-at-all-cost attitude, but works to provide and improve the spaces that his friends and neighbors live in and strives to meet their changing needs.

Mike Merritt - designer/project manager
Mike Merritt came to The Renovation Company in 2005. His past experience at an environmental building non-profit, an international commercial architectural firm and a small residential office have allowed the formal addition of architectural design to The Renovation Company's list of services.

Mike works with clients who need design services and also manages construction projects on site for a consistency of vision and an ability to make design based decisions in the field that keep your project moving along. He is a LEED Accredited Professional and received his Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Arkansas Fay Jones School of Architecture.
