Canaan Company is a Colorado Custom Home Builder - focusing Custom home building efforts in Monument, Colorado Springs, and surrounding suburbs since 1984. We are also a Christian based company operating our efforts on those principles. Over the past few years our quality construction has opened up markets in the surrounding counties to include Douglas County, Pueblo County and Fremont County. The growth in the mountain communities has also given us an opportunity to service building needs as far as the Westcliffe & Cotopaxi areas as well as Summit County and the town of Breckenridge. Canaan Company´s foundation is based on honesty, hard work, fair pricing and working closely with the client to ensure that together they are truly "Turning dreams into reality."

Custom homes in Colorado are some of the most unique around. With all of the sprawling mountain communities and the enormous growth along the Front Range from Fort Collins through Colorado Springs, and to Pueblo our state has experienced record setting surges in Custom Home building. The diversified clientele has produced opportunities for trend setting designs and the introduction of alternative building products and methods.

The enormous growth has also brought to light the need for more cost efficient building methods and more importantly more energy efficient home building practices. Construction methods used in building Custom Homes are ever changing along the Front Range and also in surrounding growth areas. Quality Builders have to constantly monitor these changing methods and improvements in procedure, and implement them into their building procedures. While most of the concentration over the past few years has been targeted toward building more energy efficient Custom Homes, the growth has also stimulated a very competitive market.

Canaan Company has built its reputation on providing un-compromised quality and customer satisfaction while continuing to provide a value priced product. It is our goal to exceed the expectations of each and every client regarding Custom Home design, production timeliness, product quality and end product valuation.

Whether you are building your first Custom Home and are looking for a Builder to patiently walk you through all of the phases of Custom Home building from the design stage through completion or you are a seasoned building client that desires an organized and time tested process to home building, you will find the level of service you deserve with Canaan Company.

When it came time to choose a career path for the future he enrolled at Colorado State University in the business college focusing studies on information systems. During the summer months, he continued his endeavors in the construction field as a framer and by graduation was leading crews building Custom Homes. John would later find out that the Custom Home industry would be the path to take him where he is today.

In the fall of 1984 a long time family friend and then Custom Home Builder offered John the opportunity to take over his framing needs. John had been working in his field of study but had never found the place that truly suited him - this offer opened the door for John to begin pursuing his love of building Custom Homes. By the end of the first two years of business, John employed between 25-30 carpenters and had extended his services beyond framing to include, foundations, roofing, custom siding & decks, interior trim, and custom cabinetry.

With a reputation as one of the premiere framing carpenters in the region, John's crews would have the opportunity to construct some of the largest and unique homes built in the area. During this time frame, his crews were working on houses ranging in size up to 18,000 plus square foot with prices upwards of 3 million dollars. It was this point in time that a decision was made to begin building Custom Homes under his own name.

Starting with one 'Spec' home at a time, John began a tradition of 'hands-on' building that still is major component of his building process to date. Over the years, he has had the opportunity to build all types of homes ranging in price from under $100,000 to well over 1 million. Past clients have attributed success to his honesty, his attention to detail, the very personal approach put into each project, his flexibility in working with a range of clients, the commitment to quality, and his 'hands-on' approach to building. John also credits his success to the commitment of his sub-contractors and suppliers by providing an equal level of service and quality regarding each and every project.

John's commitment of providing a truly enjoyable building experience is one of his best attributes. With the organizational process developed over the years and his detail in project development, the stresses of Custom Home building and the 'unknown factors' are removed from the equation providing a great environment and unique experience.

I would like to extend a personal invitation to those of you looking to build that special home to enjoy the opportunity to have your building needs met with a unique and enjoyable experience. I look forward to your call.
