Nate Lochner | Vice President of Architecture

IMG 9283

In my early years, I can recall staying up well past my bedtime sketching in a notebook, often trying to draw my dream home. It was those early sketches that sparked my interest in Architectural Design. Growing up in a blue-collar family deeply ingrained in various trades, there were constant weekend construction projects going on. From the time that I was old enough to hold a hammer, I was there lending a helping hand. No matter how many times I swung and hit my finger, I kept trying, getting better and better with each swing. These experiences led me to leave behind my black and blue fingers and pursue my ultimate dream of becoming an architect.
 
The first step in my journey was attending the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee where I obtained a degree in Architectural Studies.  Following graduation, I felt that it would be most beneficial for me to gain more hands-on experience in the field, learning how all of the parts and pieces of a home go together. I gained this experience during my time working for an HVAC Company.  It was there that I learned to take pride in the quality of work that I did, whether it would be hidden in a wall or not. A life lesson that still sticks with me today.
 
At A. Perry Homes, I bring an extraordinary amount of energy and passion to each individual project that I am a part of.  My duties within the firm include conceiving design concepts, developing construction documents, and making sure that every one of our client's expectations are met. I feel privileged to be a part of such a talented team of Architects and Builders and can truly say that I love coming to work every day.
 
When I am not working, you can find me enjoying the outdoors, either golfing, hunting, fishing, or attending concerts.
