About Us

Where We Shine as a Custom Home Builder

Frequently, the projects we take on involve some complex aspect that makes other home builders shy away. An indoor pool, a geothermal system, a two-story waterfall that drops magically into a koi pond in the basement – we revel in these opportunities. Got an ambitious project with a high degree of difficulty? Throw it out to us – we love a challenge.

What type of project do you have in mind? An energy-efficient custom home with all the upgrades? A dysfunctional older home transformed with magnificent modern features and conveniences? Or a commercial space of any age, shape, or size longing to suit new high-end tenants? We have the experience building in Colorado to make the end result a success.

Our Building Process

As a custom home builder, we prefer to work as a design-build contractor. That means we team up the architect, the engineers, and the contractor from the beginning. This approach allows us all as a group to collectively design an optimal project that corresponds with the owner’s budget and expectations.

We begin with the end in mind, understanding the owners’ must-haves, wants, and budget. Then we plan accordingly. The collaborative time we spend during this process results in many project efficiencies without compromising the design or integrity of the final product. It also allows the owners and the design-build team the opportunity to provide input throughout the creative process. Read more about our design-build process »

Happy Clients are our Favorite Kind of Clients

“We had the rare privilege of finding a contractor we wholeheartedly trusted and enjoyed. Chandler was an integral part of the design process and helped balance vision and construction with pragmatic advice, creative problem solving, and a side of levity. We started the process as client and contractor, but finished with a remarkable house and a lifelong friend.”
