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 currently 65+ builders listed in the Sandpoint area, a hot bed for mountain home construction. Following are builders in Sandpoint who I believe have the minimum standards to do a decent 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. I would also only recommend certain ones for building at Schweitzer Ski Resort, with it's more rugged climate.
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.

My apologies as there can be diamonds in the rough who I’m not familiar with. If there is a contractor out there who feels you should be included on this list, please let me know. I would love to see projects you’ve completed and are currently working on.
Please note, I wrote this post in 2009, and hardly ever update it. You can always call or email me if you have questions.
