Our Story

Building Your Dreams With Passion

At its heart, the Mountain View Builders story is all about family—ours and yours. It’s a story of passion and pride, keeping promises, and building a legacy.

Josh began his career renovating fixer-uppers in Cañon City, Colorado. The day he finished his first house, he knew building would be his career. After renovating a few more homes, he realized there was something even more special about designing and building homes from the ground up.


Learning What Homebuyers Truly Want

Ask him, and he’ll tell you: you learn a lot building a home from scratch, and not just about construction. During his early years, Josh talked to hundreds of people about the building process: what they loved, what they disliked, and how the process made them feel. After a while, two things became crystal clear to him.

First, every home had to start with a great design. And second, what people really wanted was the freedom and flexibility to build an affordable home—where and how they wanted it. He learned that buying someone else’s house always involves compromise and that other builders were full of reasons why this or that couldn’t be done. People told Josh they wanted a builder who would listen and help them create their dream home.

Josh discovered that the true vision for Mountain View Builders was in designing and building fully custom homes the way his customers wanted them. Not close to what they wanted—exactly what they wanted, at a price and quality level no other builder was delivering. He also learned that this is much easier said than done, which is why so few builders have made an attempt to do it.

It was this blend of insight and personal passion that drove Josh and his family to commit to building a legacy of quality and affordability in Fremont County, Colorado, one beautiful home, one family at a time. They dedicated themselves to building every home as though they were building it for their family.


Blending Design, Technology, and Craftsmanship

Today, Mountain View Builders continues to set the benchmark for excellence through detailed supervision and efficient management, with a balance of innovative design, state-of-the-art technologies, and unsurpassed craftsmanship. Yet, no two homes are alike. Each reflects the personal design choices and dreams of its owners.

Mountain View Builders works with dedicated local trade partners who share the company’s commitment to building the homes customers want to build, the way they want them built: with a fully collaborative spirit and a dedication to building homes families can enjoy for generations.

Planning your dream home with Mountain View Builders is an exciting journey where your vision comes to life. Our process is structured and straightforward, yet fully flexible to accommodate your one-of-a-kind requirements. Mountain View Builders is unique because we offer both stick-built and post-frame homes to meet each customer's needs. We also have the capability of building fire-resistant homes through strategic construction and state-of-the-art building materials.


Transparency, Quality, and Peace of Mind

If you want a builder who cares, is transparent, focuses on quality rather than quantity, and offers an exclusive hybrid cost contract of a fixed price and a cost-plus contract, Mountain View Builders is your ideal choice. With this hybrid approach, your contracted cost-to-build price is a fixed price and the maximum price you will pay.

We include a de-escalation clause, so if prices go down, so does your cost. If prices rise, you will not pay more than your agreed contracted cost-to-build fixed price. This way, you get the peace of mind of knowing the price will not exceed the fixed contract price, but if the market changes and material/labor costs decrease, so does your final cost to build.

We look forward to visiting with you and: “BUILDING YOUR DREAMS WITH PASSION
