Tim Bakke

Tim BakkeTim has more than 40 years of experience in construction and home-improvement writing, editorial direction, and publishing management. He has worked in magazine and book publishing – and during the past 10-plus years in online house-plan publishing as a natural progression, or evolution, from print home-plan publishing.


Tim has written home related articles for places including Realtor Magazine, Innovation Excellence, and The Innovation Enterprise. He typically writes on architectural styles, IoT and smart homes, and the home building process.


Previously, Tim was with Creative Homeowner, a lifestyle book and digital media publisher where he first became introduced to house-pan publishing. There, he led a creative team producing high-quality lifestyle books that won dozens of industry awards from organizations such as USA Book News Best Book Award; Independent Publishers Book Award (gold, silver, bronze levels); Publishers Marketing Association Ben Franklin Award; Foreward Magazine's Book of the Year. He was also part of the team that spearheaded the transition of house plans marketing from books and magazines to the Internet.


Tim enjoys researching and writing about the real estate market, residential architecture, home improvement, and landscaping/gardening.


Tim is an active contributor to The Plan Collection's resource library and our home architecture and building video lecture series on YouTube. Connect with Tim on LinkedIn.
