After completing his MBA at Colorado State University, Greg Yucha returned to Durango and began working as a project manager for a custom home builder in the area. He quickly realized that the true success of a general contractor is not in their ability to hammer nails, but rather in their ability to put together the perfect team of employees, subcontractors, suppliers and other professionals in the home building industry.
In the winter of 2015 Greg purchased a dilapidated home on 3 acres just outside Durango. His brother in law, Geoff, recently moved to Durango and was looking for work s a carpenter and tile setter. The two teamed up with the plan to remodel and flip the old home with the goal of having it ready for sale by the end of the summer. At first glance Geoff knew the house could not be saved and had to go. After a quick 15 minutes discussion they decided to knock the house down and start from scratch. In 8 short months they completed their first home together. The house was designed by Greg Yucha and the bulk of the construction was completed by Greg and Geoff while. The house was featured in the 2015 Parade of Homes and took 1st PLACE PEOPLE'S CHOICE for homes under $750,000.00.
