What customers are saying about

"Sutter went above and beyond to take an idea to a completed home, and was able to provide great value and a unique financing situation to get my project done."
"Quality of work, knowledge of building code, building science, and energy efficiency, timeframe of project, communication regarding budget and modifications made during construction, and customer service is why I chose Sutter."
"We had Mike Sutter of Sutter Homes and his team build us a home 5 years ago. The finished home is just as good today, as it was when we moved in on day one."
Energy Efficiency
We are extremely pleased with our custom-built home by Sutter Homes. First and foremost, the energy efficiency is exceptional. Last LPEA bill was $13.80 and the Atmos gas bill was $28.
"Sutters pricing was by far the best I could find, leaving ample equity when I sold the home. My utility bills were still extremely low and we loved how quiet and comfortable the house was."
Sam Q.
Having a quality construction company brings such peace of mind when you’re working on any building project.
Lorie S.
Through the construction process Mike and his team were timely, attentive and flexible with last minute changes we would make. Their customer service and professionalism are A+ and you cannot find a builder of higher character.
Ryan W.
Mike was very accommodating in assisting us with changes and modifications in design and materials. We highly recommend Sutter Homes if you're looking for a quality home built with today's energy efficiency in mind.

Sutter Homes Co. Is the leading Net Zero home builder in the Durango, CO and the 4-Corners area

Building a new home involves a lot of moving pieces that can lead to anxiety, delays, mistakes, and poor quality

AND with increasing net zero requirements for new construction, the wrong mistake could cost you thousands.

The little things can add up.

Doors that leave gaps and don't close properly, creaky flooring, appliances not connected properly, hot and cold spots with heating and air, leaky plumbing or irrigation systems, HVAC failures, poor quality fixtures, the list goes on.

And if even one of these things happens, the last thing you want is a contractor that makes excuses, doesn't back-up their work, or worse, doesn't respond at all.

Then there's the BIG stuff.

Well systems break, in-floor heating leaks, roof leaks, or siding that fails after one storm.

Some mistakes create conditions that are downright unlivable until they're fixed.

Then there are the things that can happen during the build process.

Sub-contractors no-show, leaving builders hanging.

Poor planning can lead to months or even year-long delays.

To add insult to injury, material prices can increase rapidly and even one delay that's out of your control can cause you to blow through your budget.

We've seen this scenario too many times: hopeful buyers get sucked in by a price that's too good to be true, they're given unrealistic expectations, and then the price gradually raises throughout the process—and they end up paying more than if they'd gone with someone else.

We don't want these things to happen to you.
