Humans of OA: Ethan Eckstrom

“Growing up I always loved building, so until I’m old enough to build a house on my own I design houses instead to quench my thirst for the construction industry. I like to design luxury custom homes for the New England market because I often see sub-par designs being built, and I like to be creative when designing someone’s dream home that’ll probably be the single biggest investment of their lives. I’m currently learning from trade professionals through internships to help me develop my craft and get my product to the market. Learning new methods and ideas everyday elevates my game as I pursue a career in architecture/construction.” – Ethan Eckstrom, grade 10
