COLLIN JACOBS, Partner / Architect

Collin discovered his love for sketching at a very young age and hasn't put down his sketchbook since. Collin obtained an Environmental Design degree from Montana State University then relocated to Kansas, where he obtained his Master of Architecture from the University of Kansas. 

After working in both construction firms and architecture firms in South Dakota, Collin relocated to the Pequot Lakes with a desire to find small town life while continuing a career in custom residential design. 

Collin enjoys spending time with his wife and their three young children. Enjoying all seasons, you can find Collin and his family skiing, boating, and hunting. Trips to his 3rd generation family cabin in Ontario are a highlight. This family tradition never fails to breath balance and inspiration into Collin's design. 


Vaughn launched his career in the residential design world in the Twin Cities. Starting as a drafter, Vaughn's hard work quickly lead to management which prepared Vaughn for the next challenge - launching his own firm and heading North to the Brainerd Lakes Area. After 10 years 'Up North' Vaughn continues to work with many of his original clients across Minnesota while building a team that shares his passion for design.

Vaughn and his wife have two young children and reside in Lake Shore, MN. Vaughn enjoys everything lake-life has to offer, skiing, mountain biking, camping adventures, watching his children's activities, and visiting with friends.
