Thomas Grier is a new member to our Kootenia Homes teams. He is our first on staff architect in about 50 years! He graduated in 2009 from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Architecture. After working hard for his degree, he joined the architecture field and has been doing this for over 10 years. Not only has Thomas been a licensed architect in Minnesota since 2016 and in Wisconsin since 2019, he is also a member of the American Institute of Architects (a professional organization of architects in the United States).
From a very young age, Thomas has had an interest in residential architecture and thank to his passion for bringing a client’s vision to life, he was able to turn fascination into a career. He was involved on the construction side of architecture gave him a a different perspective on the design process and he joined Kootenia Homes to broaden his professional experience.
For a little bonus to get to know Thomas more, in his free time he loves restoring his historic 1912 home, gardening, and traveling!
