Ryan has been building and creating since he was in diapers. Working with is father he gained experience in all aspects of construction and the trades. He gained a thorough understanding of the home building process and ultimately decided to continue his education and earned a degree in Real Estate and Construction Management from The University of Denver.

He has worked in Commercial, Multi-family and Single Family Residential Construction as well as being a licensed real estate broker. “I am saddened by the scale of waste in all construction industries. There is a way to build smarter and more in concert with our environment and I believe tiny homes are the solution.”

Ryan left the corporate construction industry to look for opportunities as a tiny home builder. He was immediately hooked and wanted to learn all he could about the new industry. “I wanted to know how they were building and what people were looking for in a tiny and why.”

After working with a local builder Ryan decided to break out on his own and find a way to continue to help in the tiny home movement. He discovered there were enough people looking to build their own tiny home but didn’t know everything they needed to get started or to finally complete their dreams of living tiny. Ryan started offering his services as a tiny house consultant helping those building their tiny home but needed some extra assistance and advice. Ryan quickly learned he could use his knowledge and skills in construction to support the tiny house movement in bigger ways. I want to show the world my vision of what tiny houses can offer and how they truly can change the world!
