Artisan Builders is a design-build company representing a guild of local artisans. We collaborate to create mountain homes from quality materials with hand-built craftsmanship and relentless attention to fine detail. We are passionate about our work. For us, building is more than a job, it is a way of life. Our general contractor services include but are not limited to Telluride, Ridgway, Ouray, Montrose and all points in between.
In every project, we strive to:
- Passionately practice our craft and manifest our clients' dreams
- Build lasting relationships with our clients and each other
- Be good stewards of the environment by respecting the profound connection between architecture and ecology.
- Take pride in our work and dedication to quality.
I have lived in the San Juan mountains since 1997, living both in Telluride and Ridgway. When I moved to the area, I was hired as a project manager by Glen Harcourt of Steeprock Builders. During the years I worked with Steeprock Builders, we designed and built many beautiful houses and formed lasting relationships with one another. I hold that experience close to my heart and find myself still collaborating with others that were part of the Steeprock family, including designing with architect Steven Jallad to build a number of custom homes in the Telluride area. Artisan Builders was started in 2007 and has since flourished building homes from rustic to modern styles of building.
I was born into a family with father and grandfathers all rooted in craftsmanship. Each of them gifted me talents and knowledge that make me who I am today. I am indebted to them and all other teachers and craftsmen that have been a part of my life over the years. The respect I pay to them is in the work put forth.
Designing and building... it is my occupation and my preoccupation. In creating Artisan Builders, I have found my calling. For this, I am deeply grateful.
