We are a family of four (five if you count the cat) building a modern mountain home in Summit County, Colorado. We are working with an architect and builder on his third residential project, we have a firm budget, and we are ready to make the move to Summit County.
We started this blog after we realized how hard it was to find information about the custom home-building process. Regardless of whether you’re interested in building your own home, or you’re just interested in the process, our experience certainly won’t be the same as yours. But hopefully seeing what we’ve gone through will help give some clarity to what the custom home-building process can look like, and maybe you can avoid some of our mistakes.
If it’s your first time here, you can either start from the beginning and follow along chronologically, or jump to the “current” state of progress. “Current” isn’t exactly current; though the posts are posted chronologically, we are usually posting a few months after each event occurs. Partially to make sure blogging doesn’t feel like a chore, and partially to keep the blog from fueling any active fires. You’ll find the occasional affiliate link, though we only link to things that we actually read, used in the house, or used for design inspiration.
We are excited about this adventure, and excited you’re interested in joining us for the ride. If you’d like to contact us, you can email us here. If you’d like to subscribe and receive posts via email, you can do that here:
