Project Timeline

We had dreamed of owning some acreage in Colorado for quite some time before finally deciding to purchase 2.3 acres in a small town just outside of the Denver metro area. Our original plan was to wait until both of our kids were out of high school before starting to build, but life presented an opportunity to start sooner. So far it’s been a long process, but we feel like we are starting to make some progress towards building our dream home in the mountains.
