Ralph Walden Working

One-on-One with Architect Ralph Walden

Doing what he’d always dreamed of  For the past 44 years, Ralph Walden has designed buildings, built them, and been deeply involved in architectural projects throughout South Carolina and beyond.  And it all makes sense

We know how overwhelming it can be to re-imagine a home on your own.

let’s face facts...

  1. You might call a few contractors to get your “Free Estimate” — but none of them seem interested in what YOU as the homeowner actually want to do.
  2. Maybe you’re a hardcore DIY’er who goes straight for the sledge hammer, assuming you’ll figure it out as you go. Act first, plan later is a very dangerous approach.
  3. You agree to start working with a contractor, but they hit a lot of “unforeseen” issues that end up costing you way more than you expected.
  4. Or, maybe you spend days, weeks, or months online trying to find rough cost estimates so you can budget your project — ultimately figuring it will cost somewhere between $5,000 and $500,000 depending on… well everything.

The reality is, when people don’t know where to start, they never do.
