Born in Southwest Ontario, Ryan started his building career at a young age in damage restoration. It was here he first saw how a remodel can transform a house. Following his apprenticeship in damage restoration, Ryan went on to attend Miami University. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Health and Sports Studies with a Minor in Business Management. While at Miami, Ryan captained the Redhawks to several championships yet always found himself spending each off-season working in the construction industry.
Following college, Ryan had an 11 year professional hockey career in the NHL and Europe. During this time, Ryan built his investment real estate portfolio which involved numerous remodels and the experience surrounding the progression of a job site. Ryan now applies his leadership, business education and hands-on construction management knowledge in his duties at Mikan Custom Homes. On top of that, Ryan takes pride in making the construction process as enjoyable as possible for Mikan’s clients.
Ryan is a loving husband (Jamie) and caring father of two boys (Lincoln 6 and Carter 4). When not on a job site Ryan is an avid outdoorsman. He can usually be found on the water chasing walleye, in a ground blind or on the links.
James was born in Buffalo, Minnesota. While he was growing up, his dream job was to build houses, just like his dad. James began working in the remodeling industry after graduating from high school, securing a job at Custom Design Wood Products. After getting some experience in the cabinetry field, James was approached with the opportunity to work for his dad. James has been getting his hands dirty on the job sites and learning the tricks of the trade since mid-2019. James is not quite the ‘avid outdoorsman’ that Ryan and Mike are but he is always dragged on fishing trips.
