Who Is Your Architecture Friend?

Hi, I’m Ryan O'Connor, an experienced designer,  a Milwaukeean, a dad, and other  fun stuff. I'm trained in Architecture and I'm a passionate, experienced DIY’er.

I really want to help you get your project started with specific advice and ideas so you can bring your vision to life. 

Your Architecture Friend was the best money I spent on my house remodel.  When my home remodeling contractors suspected that they might be removing a load bearing wall, they suspended all work until further understanding.  Ryan was knowledgeable, quick, and thorough.  After looking at the blueprints and attic, he explained the structure of the house in plain English, recommended options, what was and wasn’t load bearing, and quickly sketched out a new proposed plan I was able to give to my contracts to continue working.  I would recommend his services to anybody moving or taking down walls.
