Allen, a Birmingham Alabama native, started in the industry when he began building homes at the age of 12. Developing a deep passion for Architecture, he went on to attain a bachelor’s degree in Architecture from Auburn University, where he was the recipient of numerous awards and honors, including the first place prize in a multi-collegiate drawing competition held at the Villa Lante, circa 1566 in central Italy. Both a licensed Architect and licensed homebuilder, Allen recently expanded the firm’s architecture practice in Nashville TN. When away from the drawing board he enjoys his time out of doors – Allen is an avid fly fisherman and wing shooter, sports that he pursues around the southeast and across the country. Allen and his wife Ashley enjoy spending quality time with close friends and family, the occasional weekend getaway, and serving together in their church.
