After 40 years living in the swamps and deserts of the world, we decided we wanted to build our dream home in the mountains of Colorado. After narrowing our choice down to Summit County, we looked for a builder that would work with us from "concept to completion," work on a fee basis wherein the objectives of builder and owner were aligned, help us during site selection, due diligence soil testing and constructability evaluation, and help us with architect selection.
Building Testimonials - Kodiak Inc.
As a Home Energy Consultant, I work with builders while the house is under construction. I inspect the framing, insulation and other components, to meet the certification requirements of Energy Star, LEED for Homes and BuiltGreen Colorado.
Mike and I send the entire Kodiak team, particularly David, a huge congratulations for their build for us in the Ruby Ranch. For anyone who visits the Kodiak web site, with the pictures of our home, you will see why Kodiak was awarded “Best Exterior Design and Elevation” for our entry in the 2006 Parade of Homes. The photos of the interior reveal that our magnificent home was completed with care for every detail.
I want to thank you for the opportunity to help you recently with financial planning for your retirement. In addition, I'd like to comment on the home you recently completed up on Indian Brush Trail. I'm very impressed with the way the home turned out – it is absolutely gorgeous! Coming from a family with extensive background in construction, I noticed your attention to detail is unparalleled, especially for construction in Summit County. You do excellent work and I will most definitely consider Kodiak for my new home when I am ready to build. Just thought you’d appreciate the feedback.
Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful work on the various additions to our house on Moonstone Road in Breckenridge, Colorado. We had heard horror stories about construction projects in Summit County, but you and your crew were the greatest. We know that our early 70's house and its topography presented some challenges, but the results of your work are just beautiful. The new kitchen, the enlarged living room, a big bedroom with closet space and all that deck have really improved the livability of our house - and the boxers all agree that they have the coolest dog house in Summit County. Thanks again for the beautiful job - all the more impressive as it was all done through the winter. We feel so lucky that you did the work on our house.
It was a pleasure meeting you at the Burman home. Your company's attention to detail and craftsmanship is a tribute to your hard work, skills and background. Kathy's home is amazing. It was also a delight to meet her. She generously showed us her home with great kudos to you and your staff!! Thanks also for the kind words of support for Flight For Life. Both June and I are proud to work for such a vital service that serves the wonderful people of Summit County. Good Luck with your many projects.
We never dreamed that building a home of this quality and atmosphere could be accomplished so quickly. The relatively few hiccups we incurred in the construction process are a testament to your planning & diligence. Yes it was a lot of work but the result is outstanding. I can't imagine a better outcome than we have achieved. The fit & finish is wonderful. The quality workmanship is noticeable. Congratulations on a superior accomplishment.
Kodiak is a great company to work with when building your Colorado Dream Home. Highly recommended!
I want you to know how much we appreciate the beautiful job you did on the house and the quality of the work. We are absolutely pleased with the work and the final result. We remark on it every time we are at the house. Thank you!
Throughout the construction process, from site selection to move-in, David Koons was a joy to work with. We were working within a fairly tight budget, and his expertise allowed him to foresee many small issues and resolve them before they caused any additional expense. He was even able to suggest options for interior furnishing and finishes that saved money and looked not just good, but superior. David's attention to detail during the construction process kept the process on schedule, even through a cold and snowy Summit County winter! We were very pleased to work with David on our home, and we would highly recommend him to anyone thinking of building a home in the Rockies.
