What our clients are saying

Have we built a custom home or cabin for you? We’d love to hear about your experience. Leave us a Google review!

If you are looking to build a home or cabin in Red Feather Lakes or the surrounding areas, I highly recommend Mike, Justin, and their team. Not only are they skilled builders and craftsmen, but they are knowledgeable of the unique weather patterns in the area and county permitting process since they actually reside here. They helped design and build our primary home and also completed a shop extension for us. We have been in the home over six months and through a Red Feather winter. All Mike’s recommendations were on point, and we could not be more happy with the finished product. In addition, they stayed on schedule, were hard working, and most importantly, they are trustworthy and all around really good people. All of the sub contractors they are associated with did a great job as well. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

Summit Brothers Construction was amazing to work with on our second home in Crystal Lakes.  From the initial design, cost estimating, permitting and construction, they exceeded our expectations.  The quality and craftsmanship were excellent.  They finished ahead of schedule and on budget (with no punch list!).  Stephanie’s guidance on the selection of indoor and outdoor finishes was much needed and much appreciated – she simplified the process by providing detailed information and links on quality products.  Mike’s guidance on the construction decisions was great and he surprised us with many extra details that make the house look special.  Summit Brothers Construction does most of the work themselves, which saves time, money, and hassle, and they hire local, reputable subcontractors for the trades that they do not do.  Overall, a great experience.  We recommend Summit Brothers Construction for your project.

Summit Brothers did a remodel on our old mobile home and made it into a beautiful, new home. Incredible craftsmanship, pride, ownership, and attention to detail, unsurpassed in all work. The timing and coordination of trade work and follow up was refreshing to experience. Every week upon inspection, all we could say was “wow.”

We have a small house and Mike’s design made use of every square inch to make it seem like a bigger area. Everyone on site, Mike and Justin, the crew, and all tradesmen showed great camaraderie and seemed to enjoy what they were doing. Best decision we ever made!

We were building a new home in Glacier View Meadows. We found Summit Brothers and they met with us and gave us estimates on our plans. The thing that I liked was that they did the foundation all the way to the siding. The work was done with great skill and efficiency. The inspections went well. I would highly recommend them to anyone. We would hire them again.

Dan Cito

We are happy to have found Summit Brothers Construction to provide the foundation and framing work on our new mountain home. Mike and Justin were helpful and responsive, worked very well with other trades, and accommodated our changes throughout the project. They stepped up to the challenge that the site conditions presented, even after others said it could not be done.

Highly recommended!

We cannot begin to say how happy we are with our home build experience. Without Summit Brothers’ hard work and diligent effort, we wouldn’t have made it this far. Starting with Mike stepping up and adding us to his busy schedule to do our foundation concrete work after our concrete contractor could not complete our project, to the pandemic and wildfires that shut down our build for a couple of months. After the fire delay which consumed the warm months, we thought we were done for the summer, but Mike, Justin, and the guys persevered to finish our home through the cold and blowing snow. Mike is always responsive and available to meet in person and listened to our concerns. Mike has gone above and beyond with giving guidance, answering questions, and just making the building process stress-free and exciting.

We would highly recommend Mike and Justin and the team at Summit Brothers to anyone looking to build a new home. You will be 100% satisfied with your decision!

Jim and Tina Jones

Summit Brothers Construction was able to get our house completed when literally no one else could. Inclement high elevation weather, Frozen ground, Poor access, etc, etc. These guys know how to build up here and saved the day. The project ended up a masterpiece in spite of all the challenges.

Mike Franklin and his team at Summit Brothers Construction built our cabin in 2018. The entire process was outstanding and we recommend Mike without hesitation. Mike guided us through every step. Not only did he work with our HOA and local agencies to get all permits and approvals, but he also helped position us to make the best decisions through each phase of the build. Whether it was the overall design, finishes, decking materials, siding, and roof options – Mike would outline the pros and cons of all choices, send us material to research on our own, then would jump forward once our decisions were made. Although this was the first time we built a home from scratch, the process felt exciting and never overwhelming. The results of the team’s efforts and his great communication are fantastic. The cabin was built within budget and finished ahead of schedule.

We were fortunate enough to have the Summit Brothers build our ‘log mansion’ in Red Feather Lakes. Our project involved building a 5000 sq ft log home on a 35-acre property surrounded by the national forest.

The Brothers were very professional, knowledgeable, and all-around great to work with. Our house turned out much better than we could ever have imagined. During the building process, people who saw the progress mentioned things like “Cleanest work site I’ve ever been on,” “Better construction than any custom home we’ve seen.” These comments were from people who work in the trade and have dealt with hundreds of custom homes over their careers.

The brothers, and the guys on their crew, took great pride in their work and were willing to make changes as needed. They even identified issues with the home that our architect and the building department had missed. Not only is the structural framework of our house perfect, but the details on the interior of the home are also jaw-dropping. These include a
custom-built prow, library, walk-in shoe closet, built-in shelving and drawers, custom deck, and stairs. The list goes on and on.

We would highly recommend the summit brothers for any project. Their work is impeccable, they are dedicated to perfection as well as finishing the project on time. They take great pride in their work – and it shows!
