My Story

Garry Martin

Design, Drafting, Consulting

My love for design started in kindergarten. One day while walking to school, I stopped to observe a house that was under construction. I was fascinated how things were pounded together. My fascination caused me to be late for the school that day, but I consider it to be one of the best educational experiences of my life as it served as the starting point for my journey to the architectural profession. I later received my master’s degree in architecture from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln. I have been blessed by good experiences while working at each of my architecture employers. The greatest opportunity for me was opening Prairie Studio and being able to work closely with each of my clients to help them bring their dreams to life. I embrace collaboration. When I can work closely with you and your contractor, cool things happen!

I will work hard for you and as always, I look forward to whatever opportunities lie ahead.

Garry was fantastic to work with! He very graciously answered all my questions and gave wonderful suggestions for the design of my home. Every change and addition I asked of him was done in a very timely manner. Garry was also easily available and knowledgeable in working with the planning boards after my plan was submitted for approval. I highly recommend Garry Martin/Prairie Studio for your building design and plan.


Houzz Review

We hired Garry to design our home addition and were very impressed. As part of the process, we changed our minds several times and he didn’t mind or act like we had put him out, even though he had to change his drawing each time. Garry was quick and very prompt with communication. If we ever need an architect again we will definitely use Garry.


Houzz Review

Garry helped us get the drawings and details figured out for our addition. He was easy to work with and reasonably priced. We would hire him again.


Houzz Review

Prairie Studio designed a perfect kitchen in an impossibly small space. The finished room is beautiful and functional. Gary was patient, professional and pleasant to work with.


Houzz Review

Garry’s meticulous design and specifications for an oversized garage addition and deck on our old farm house was the perfect blueprint for our contractor. His specification of details guided the work and insured codes were correct from top to bottom through all phase of construction and inspection. Best of all were Garry’s suggestions improving original ideas for optimum blend of function and form. Thanks, Garry!
