Mr. Hess started his career in residential construction while attending the Ohio State University. As the owner of a small remodeling and deck building company, Greg learned the art of construction management. After college he began framing and siding custom homes while doing small remodeling projects on the weekends. Greg’s love for the mountains took him to Colorado in 1993. He continued his work in remodeling and began building custom homes in the Rocky Mountains. He learned to build custom homes on some of the most demanding building sites while dealing with some of the most extreme building conditions. Greg typically builds custom homes for discerning clients that usually live throughout the country. Communication and trust helps the process run smoothly. Greg lives with his wife and two children in the ski resort community of Summit County. He continues to build new homes and remodel existing homes throughout Colorado.
