This was a stellar example of what submitting for Preliminary Review and preparing the building permit submittal appropriately can do.

I was unable to perform the preliminary review in August as you know with all the other priorities given to grading permits and building permits that were submitted. However, we got information we needed from the site visit and a cursory review of the plans, relayed this information to you and Karen and you responded with doing your part.

This wasn't an easy site - there are 30% slopes, easement issues, wetlands downhill, and we identified them all to the right parties so the plans were designed well, BMPs installed and inspections done quickly. You submitted the plans to avoide the easement, supplied a copy of the easement, a copy of the lighting cut sheet, height calculations and all the appropriate submittal requirements.

Robert noticed me to approve the building permit in our database, it was on my workspace first thing this morning and I signed on your buiding permit this morning.

You got a grading permit in 2 days and our approval on the building permit in 3 days!!!

Well done!! Pass this on to the Builder's Association - the Building Permit/grading permit application process can work efficiently. Thank you!

Kind Regards,
Summit County Engineering Department

Our little log cabin in the woods was a dream of mine for the past 25 years. Mountain Log Homes of Colorado(MLH) successfully guided us through the process of making this a reality. I first contacted MLH with only an idea, then came a recommendation of a realtor to use in Breckenridge and within 2.5 years of that first phone call my dream of a log cabin in the woods is now my home in the woods. Brian, Karen, Peggy and the whole team at MLH made the process easy for an out-of-town customer but most important made the process fun and exciting. Now that the process is complete we can look back and say "MLH not only met all of our expectations but exceeded them in every way and we're happy to call them our builders and our friends

Sam & Steph, Dillon, CO

Brian, Karen & Peggy, There has been so much that we have wanted to thank you for that words cannot easily express. The kindness you have shown us has been overwhelming. Words cannot convey our gratitude in making our dream come true. We want to thank you for being an amazing Team. The experience was beyond our expectations, and our home is so much more than we ever expected.

Lynn & Doug, Breckenridge Colorado

Doug and I wanted to express our thoughts to you regarding our experience in December when we were in Breckenridge during the log raising of our home. It was truly beyond our expectation as we watched for 3 days during the building of our home with the beautiful Western Red Cedar logs from Pioneer! We are thrilled with the craftsmanship of the logs as each log has its own unique character. Joel and his crew did an outstanding job of hand crafting the logs so that the finished product is absolutely beautiful. The "character" logs he chose are so perfect and the famed "root ball" is truly a work of art! We were truly in awe when we saw it and thank all of you for such an awesome surprise.

It has been a little over a year since Mountain Log Homes of Colorado (MLH) completed the building of my family home in Breckenridge. I did not intend to wait a year to write this commendation, but the delay affords me the opportunity to observe the quality of the work with over a full year of weather and settling. It is the quality of the building that is most impressive about MLH. From the soundness of the structure to the fine finishes within we are very pleased with how our home was built.

Moreover, the people of MLH produced our quality home with professionalism, care and understanding. They have many positive attributes and some are that Brian listens remarkably well and says they can make it happen; Peggy does a great job keeping the accountants, bankers and tax advisors happy; Karen's input was beneficial and enjoyable; and Ralph's craftsmanship was stunning. Their many subcontractors and suppliers follow suit. It has been a pleasure to know and work with each of them.

Dave & Betsy, Glenn Ellyn, IL

For years we envisioned what our log home might look like inside and out. The Mountain Log Home team made our vision a reality. Being in Chicago during construction could have been a problem, because there are so many decisions to be made on a daily basis - but Peggy and Brian led us through each decision with ease. We were very proud to "show off" Mountain Log Home's expertise at the 2007 Parade of Homes, where we won the Realtors Choice award, among others. The whole process from start to finish was a great experience because of the MLHOC team. We would not hesitate to do it all over again!

Wow!! I am so impressed. Buck and Jean's home turned out so beautiful. Techne' Architecture designed an attractive home, but the photos make it better than I ever imagined. I am so impressed with the finishing detail, Mountain Log Homes did a fantastic job. I hope The Tippins are thrilled with their home.

Buck & Jean, Silverthorne, CO

Mountains ... river ... log home! We have a dream home in a dream location! We've always loved mountains and log homes, and after finding this lot on the Blue River, we contacted Rocky Mountain Log Homes who put us in touch with their local contractor, Mountain Log Homes of Colorado. The combined talents of Brian Higgins (architect) and Brian Wray (contractor) produced a beautiful, livable and comfortable home that is just right for us. The quality of the workmanship allows the log home and the location on the Blue River to complement each other. The house has numerous special features, including: two fireplaces with hand carved mantels– a hand carved entrance door – log stairs leading to the second floor -- multiple decks and patios for outdoor living – a comfortable traffic pattern – excellent storage space from cabinets, walk-in pantry and closets to the contractor's innovative use of under eaves space for additional storage – granite countertops – large master bath with jetted tub and steam shower – moss rock inside and out that enhances the beauty of the logs and timbers. And all this comes with a Built-Green certification.

Mountain Log Homes showed true craft and professionalism with the construction of the Highlands Residence. They are a real team player and a pleasure to work with. I believe the owner benefited most as they now have a unique Colorado home with fine detail and superb finish.

Tom & Peggy, Breckenridge, CO

Mountain Log Homes built us a beautiful log home here in The Highlands at Breckenridge. Their commitment to quality construction is exceptional, and has provoked many compliments from our family and friends. While our very creative architect gave them some difficult challenges, they met them all and created a very unique looking log home. If we are ever crazy enough to build another log home we'll gladly use them again.

Colin & Irene, Parker, CO.

The team at Mountain Log Homes created a unique and fantastic home which receives endless compliments from people who visit. We spent considerable time researching everything from log selection to design & construction to interior finish. As fastidious as we are, Mountain Log Homes worked with us throughout the whole process and the end result is a home of beauty. If you are looking for the very best in quality and construction in the Summit County area we can highly recommend them.

Steve & Faye, Breckenridge, CO

"We wanted an open design, not the typical mountain home. I sketched everything out and was referred to Brian Wray by Rocky Mountain Log Homes. We chose Mountain Log Homes because we had seen another home they had built. Brian sent my sketches to Rocky. They sent us more formal plans that showed basically what we had done. We made more changes, and then they sent us the engineered plans. When asked what they would do differently if they did it again "Probably nothing. It's a dream house."

Joe & Gene, Silverthorne, CO.

We're pleased to recommend Mountain Log Homes. They provided assistance when we modified a RMLH 'Walnut Canyon' Plan to meet our personal needs. Brian met the challenges of our steep mountain lot. He recommended a full wrap-around porch, and the addition of a garage and game room to our walkout lower level. Peggy gave us peace of mind with the material selections & budgets. Mtn Log Homes not only built us a beautiful log home, but managed the entire development of our property including the driveway and utilities. We wouldn't change a thing! I cannot imagine finding a more expert team that understands the construction delivery process and communicates in a way that keeps everyone on the same page.

Yvonne & Fred, Wolcott, CO

The combination of Rocky Mountain Log Homes, the log package company out of Hamilton, Montana, and Mountain Log Homes, the local log company representative and the building contractor operating in Frisco, Colorado, combined to create our wonderful home atop Bellyache Ridge in Wolcott, Colorado.

After years of researching, we selected Rocky Mountain Log Homes because of their style of log construction, one that would allow us to avoid chinking for the most part (a look that we just didn't want in our home) and yet provide a high level of sealing and insulation from the cold outdoors to the warm interior. We also really liked the fact that a great many of their logs came from previously downed wood, such as from the Yellowstone forest fires and from the Mount St. Helen's volcano areas, and – regardless of their source – were very dry to begin with and so experienced little shrinkage after the home was built. They took plans that we had previously drawn up ourselves, suggested modifications, and then took my drawings and converted them into the architectural drawings required for the structural integrity of the design. They delivered a log and window package to our building site that was top-notch quality.
