Your philosophy and product reflect art, craftsmanship, engineering, business savvy, and respect for nature. What an exciting and admirable combination!”

Alice Pennels
“Although I have had several custom homes built in the past, this is the first time I have chosen design/build. I must say that I found this process much easier and more effective than with previous home construction. It is the first time that I received everything I wished for, and even more. I could not be more satisfied with the results.”

Steve Kiely
“Our home was designed and built by Mark Galbraith. Eunice and I had never built before and had an absolutely fine experience working with Mark and his entire crew. Mark is a true professional who does absolutely exceptional work. We recommend him highly.”

Warren and Eunice Kerzon
“We built two homes with Galbraith Builders and Galbraith Design in the Durango area. These extraordinary companies provided originality, excellence, and a quality far above the concept of outstanding!”

Jan and John Cauffman
“Thank you for excellence in craftsmanship and the special quality touches that are synonymous with Galbraith. The house is fabulous! We are very happy.”

Jim and Judy Winzell
“On a scale of one to ten, I would rate Galbraith Builders an eleven.”
