What are clients saying about 42 North Architecture + Design?

I cannot state how unbelievable both Ryan and Travis have been through the design build of our home. They have more than exceeded expectations, saved us money, but most of all they have treated us like family and put in time that most won’t do for a project.


Ryan and Travis are very knowledgable! They are both very personable and friendly to work with, which makes any process and experience so much better! We had much of our house plan designed/drawn up, and they were willing to take us on and finalize everything for us, which we are so grateful for! Would highly recommend 42 North!

Geoff and Stacey Eldred, Lowell, MI

Very professional. Listened to what we wanted & also gave helpful suggestions. Very fast response when we asked for changes.

Nick Hendriksma, SAUGATUCK

Ryan was able to take our thoughts of what we wanted our dream home to be and put that into realistic drawings. We were building the home ourselves and knew what our floor plan would be, but struggled with how to put it altogether. Ryan did that for us and was extremely patient in listening to both of our opinions and wishes for what we wanted.

Kim and Tony Maggini, Rockford

This is our second time building a home but our first time using 42 North. The overall design of our current home certainly exceeded our expectations. We love the layout of our home and it fits the needs of our family perfectly. Our house was featured in the Parade of Homes and the feedback we received from that was very complimentary. 42 North also went above and beyond by making it out to the construction site regularly to help oversee the build process while providing us with invaluable input. It would be difficult to overstate our satisfaction with Ryan and his team.

My wife and I had the pleasure of working with Ryan on OUR home. I emphasize our, because he listened to what we wanted, asked questions about where we were at in our lives, and guided us in the right direction. He did a great job of letting us make this our very own! Thanks 42 North

Ryan listened and understood our desires and needs – he even sorted thru the hundreds of Houzz pictures I saved! He visited our site numerous times. He ‘got’ us. With his thorough research for our project, he nearly nailed it with his first drawings. We made some minor changes thru the process and the result is our perfect empty nest.

MARK & KATHY O, Grand Rapids, MI

Ryan and [the 42° North team] are the best architects I have had the pleasure to work with in 30 years I have been in the construction industry! We teamed up and completed a couple very successful projects in Michigan. I’m now looking forward to again working together on some projects in Texas.
