s an architect, one of the most important aspects of my job is lining up homeowners with the right general contractor. Each project is different, so finding the right fit will vary. There are roughly 200 builders listed in the Coeur d'Alene area, but only a certain number that I would feel comfortable recommending at such high end neighborhoods as Black Rock and Gozzer Ranch. Following are builders in Coeur d'Alene who I believe have the capability to do a good job on a mountain home with the right plans. Some are better quality than others, and there are some I would only recommend on certain projects, depending on an owner's desired quality, style, type of construction, scope and budget.
If you want more information on these contractors, or want to know who might be a good fit for your project, please feel free to contact me. I am including their contact information and any websites if you would rather contact them directly.
