After a successful 8-year career with the largest home builder in Utah, Jamie and his wife started their own business. Walker Home Design was founded in 2000 by Michael James (Jamie) Walker. Walker Fun Spaces began in 2004 creating themed rooms in homes, and Quick House Plans.com was launched in 2014 to offer great plans at the click of a button. He enjoys helping people design their dream homes by teaching them to think differently. Jamie and his team have designed over 4,000 single family, multifamily and remodel projects. He also helped design one of the largest haunted attractions in the western states, The Fear Factory.
Walker Home Design loves to give back. Jamie and his team have designed dozens of themed rooms that showcase Wish children from the Make-A-Wish foundation. They have also donated plans to the Habitat for Humanity, playhouses to the Shriners Hospital, and Festival of trees, which funds a local Children’s Hospital.
Jamie has a Marketing degree from the University of Utah and an associate degree in Architecture/Engineering from Rick’s College. He has been an active member of the state and local HBA’s since 2002. WHD awards include: 4-time winner in Utah's “Best of State” program. WHD has also won numerous Best of Show, Best Architect, and People’s Choice awards in the Salt Lake Parade of Homes. Jamie has also been awarded "Associate of the Year", from the Salt Lake HBA.
Whether it’s an amusement attraction, public building, a client’s dream home, or a builder’s new product line, Jamie strives to create the perfect plan for everyone’s needs in a way that is economical to build, functional to live in, and attractive to look at. Builders claim that WHD homes are a great value and typically bid out for $10-30k less than other firms.
