for Christopher Smith. His building apprenticeship
began as a teenager working in the
family business, Best Improvements, one of
the most respected masonry contractors in
Greater Cincinnati. Even then, Chris began
to dream of having his own business.

Christopher Homes Commercial

was a subdivision in Beavercreek, a Dayton

suburbs of Forest Park, Mt. Healthy and
Symmes Township to being a key player in
the renaissance of Avondale by building the
showcase homes of Bishop Herbert
