Denver Custom Home Builder

Sustainable Design Build (SDB) knows that selecting a custom home builder is a significant undertaking. You are handing off your hopes, dreams, and vision of your personal home to others in hopes they can turn it into reality. Hiring a custom home builder you can trust to get it right has never been more important. That’s why SDB begins by simply listening. We want to understand what’s important to you and how customized spaces can make your life better. There is nothing more rewarding than having a uniquely designed home built perfectly for you and your family. 

Whether you want an eco-friendly home that will take care of your family for generations to come, or you simply want higher standards and custom features not found elsewhere, SDB will help you get started and streamline a plan for designing and building your custom home.  Instead of assembling your own design team, working with a trusted design build firm can be significantly more advantageous because it can save you time and money by being a one-stop communication hub.

This is why our value engineering design process is a great benefit to homeowners who are seeking transparency and integrity throughout their entire design and construction experience.

We had a fantastic experience with the Sustainable Design Build team. We worked closely with Mike and Derek throughout the project and they were consistently responsive and great listeners- always able to clearly explain why something was a particular way or how things could be changed to meet our needs. Critically they are a company that keeps their word. We ended up having to move half way through out project and the team was very accommodating on figuring out a clean way to wind down the process in a way that was fair for everybody. My wife and I were super impressed with their professionalism and honesty throughout the process and would definitely recommend them to anyone who is considering going through a major remodel and needs help with either the design or construction aspects of their project.

I have had the pleasure of collaborating with the SDB team on many projects, and their focus to be eco- friendly and minimize the impact construction has on the environment is true to their name. I appreciate the efforts made by all members of the team to recycle different materials and become more knowledgeable about the different sustainability practices in Denver and surrounding municipalities. A big thank you to the Sustainable Design Build team for your professionalism and reliability. You are amazing to work with, and I look forward to more projects together!

SDB did a great job of transforming what was on paper to something tangible. Our project was done in one of the hardest years to try and build a house which was 2020. Through all the building cost increases, delays, quarantines, etc. they were able to deliver a finished project that we truly enjoy.

We just finished the design phase of our Pop-Top with SDB and they have all of the contacts. The team at SDB brought in a qualified designer, structural engineer, asbestos and lead tester, blower door tester, Manual JDS tester, etc. We are about to embark on the build change so I'm looking forward to writing another 5 star review.

Working with SDB was a fantastic experience! We needed to remodel / transform an historic building into office space and this team was great to work with. From flooring, framing, electrical, plumbing...there wasn't a single area they weren't able to handle with top-notch workmanship. Super happy with the results and grateful for a GC you can count on, communicate easily with, and provide quality results. Thanks team!

We used Sustainable Design Build to finish our basement. We absolutely love how it turned out! Our project manager was so helpful throughout the whole process and it has exceeded our expectations in beauty, design and functionality!

We hired Sustainable Design Build to design and build our basement bathroom and refinish our basement bedroom. Jon and his team did an excellent job with the design, prepared a competitive and fair quote, and got right to work. Having been in Denver for 5 years and struggled to find any reliable contractors, SDB had a stable full of professional contractors for each part of the job (plumbing, electrical, HVAC, Paint, Tile, etc.). They ensured great work and that everything was up to code. For the miscellaneous pieces of the job, Josh and others on the SDB team were responsive and skilled to ensure the smallest details were not missed. When small issues came up, as they do with a project this size, Josh was timely and made sure things were done right. I definitely recommend SDB for anyone looking for help with their remodel and plan to use their services again in the future very soon.

Sustainable Design Build was the Design/ Build firm for a few large scale projects I worked on around Denver and I found them to be very responsive and professional. They received many accolades from their clients.

Call a Design-Build First, Not an Architect

Starting with a builder first can be the single best decision you can make when starting to budget, plan, and design your dream home.

Many potential first-time home builder clients often start out by conferring with an architect before a design build company or a builder. This common misconception can often lead to avoidable expenses before the project design has even begun. Architects don’t always have the most accurate forecasting when it comes to the actual cost of construction. Their first and foremost focus is on the design which can oftentimes lead to inaccurate budget projections.

When you consult with Sustainable Design Build, we take a more holistic approach to the scope work and cost of the project. By working with customers from the beginning with a design-build approach, clients get to set the price! SDB will continually refine the budget throughout the design of the project and finalize the budget within two weeks of receiving finalized permit approval.

Avoid unnecessary headaches and cost by making your first call to Sustainable Design Build.
