About Us


Galbraith Builders is a full service design-build firm located in Durango, Colorado, building homes throughout La Plata County. We have over 37 years experience providing complete design and turn-key construction of high quality custom homes. As the leading design/builder in Durango, we have over 52 custom homes to our credit.

The majority of our projects are design/build of one-of-a-kind custom homes. The design concept,design development, and all architectural working drawings are produced in-house. Each home is fully engineered from the foundation to the roof by a local, licensed structural engineering firm, which has engineered over thirty-five homes for us. We prefer to work as a design-builder, because many years of experience have shown this method to be advantageous for both our clients and ourselves.

Galbraith Builders has enthusiastically embraced green building practices – our projects exceed the standards set by Built Green Colorado and Energy Star. Our commitment to green building begins with the initial site planning, and carries through to the final finishes used in the house. The net effect is a house that has been built without harming our environment, is more energy efficient, and is overall a more pleasant, satisfying structure to live in. We have extensive training in solar and geothermal technologies and we encourage our clients to explore these options.

Our goal is to design and build unique, interesting homes built with the best materials and careful workmanship so they will last many years with a minimum of maintenance. We take great pride in our attention to detail, knowing that finish detail is one of the things that helps give our homes distinction and added interest.
