On the Cover and Feature Builder in Colorado Builder Magazine…

Cut No Slak Construction, Colorado Builder Magazine’s featured builder of the month in May 2000, prides itself on designing and building energy efficient homes with high quality products.

Established in 1975, Cut No Slak produces a great deal of their work in-house from excavation to interior trim.

Their contracting business includes custom design services for both residential and light commercial projects. Owner Brenda Warren has a unique ability to visualize an entire project from concept to reality.

Ninety percent of their custom home clients are living out of state while their retirement or vacation home is being designed and built. Communication has become their most valuable tool in client relations employing e-mail and digital photo imaging in the visualization of their project concepts.

Cut No Slak’s portfolio includes over 100 custom homes and commercial projects built in Chaffee County and the surrounding area.

Some of their most exciting, unique and challenging projects have included: the Buddhist Temple for the Crestone Mt. Zen Center in Crestone, CO, eight efficiency retreat hermitages for the Spiritual Life Institute of Crestone, restoration of the First Street Cafe (after a fire) located in one of the historical buildings in downtown Salida, various restoration and preservation projects in the historical St. Elmo Ghost Town.

Their largest project to date is the U.S. Forest Service and San Isabel National Forest Headquarters Building on Highway 50 in Salida.
