Ryan Cowan, Colorado Maker

We believe in building high-quality projects for design-minded clients.

Cowan’s interest in environmental surroundings is at the heart of his work, as well. “I always liked the idea that design can be more than a simple house plan,” he remarks. “I have always felt a general lack of artistic value in most of what we experience in our world of buildings. As an industry, contractors and builders tend to make things overly pragmatic, driven not only by the least expensive material options, but by limited time, creativity, and skill sets.”

Growing up in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Ryan Cowan spent much of his time riding bicycles and on the fender of his uncle’s tractor. Cowan figured he, too, would be a farmer someday. But alongside his father, a custom homebuilder, Cowan’s interest in design was sparked as he watched the process of making buildings.
