What our clients say:

“The rumored difficulty and stress in buying a custom home never materialized! David, his team, and all involved were consummate professionals, responsive, and built a home that far surpassed our expectations. I wish I could say that we had something to do with the design and finished product, but the reality is David executed his vision (and that of his architect who is equally awesome.) We are the benefactors. We got the sense throughout, that David really cares about the homes he builds and the people buying them. It’s not an act. We can’t say enough good things about our new home and the people responsible for its build. A sincere thank you from the Hughes family. We couldn’t be happier.”

“On budget and on schedule: the words and actions you want to hear when managing a real estate project. David Gross General Contractor delivered on his promises to Wilder on the Taylor on the renovation of a historic cabin on the Taylor River. David and his team are always available, good communicators, and provided quality workmanship. Best of all…on budget and on schedule. A great experience and would highly recommend David Gross General Contractor.”

Michele WheelerWilder on the Taylor

“David Gross and his team have been excellent partners. Building through winter, a pandemic, and forced lockdowns was not easy, but David was proactive, communicative, and creative in finding ways to keep us on schedule and on budget. I highly recommend David Gross and look forward to working with him on the next phase of our project.”

Russell DeSalvoSkyland Development Partners
“As an entrepreneur and self-professed perfectionist, I’m accustomed to being in the driver’s seat. So when we decided to build our forever home here in the valley, I gave myself a pep talk to let go of my exacting standards and the many Pinterest pipedreams that went with it. Until we met with David Gross.
From the first nail to now a backyard full of guests, David, and his team consistently advocated to see our vision through—on budget and on time. We made several design decisions that aren’t common in our valley. Where others may have scratched their heads and dismissed the vision, David would call after hours with a creative solution. Or he would pull from his extensive network to find the right subcontractor who was hungry to try something new. Not only did they make it happen, but did so with outstanding craftsmanship.
David’s enthusiasm for each project is rivaled only by his integrity. When the going gets tough (as it inevitably does), you want to work with a builder who is going to make things right when small things get missed (or when this perfectionist wants it just a little more perfect). There is a reason DGGC is as sought after as they are — and integrity tops my list.
From this local family, our most sincere gratitude to DGGC!”

“We give David Gross General Contractor the highest recommendation for anyone building a house in Crested Butte. From our first meeting until the final nail, David was fully engaged, committed, and motivated, always looking out for our best interests. His responsiveness to our phone calls, texts, and emails was above and beyond. He involved us in all aspects, making recommendations, changes, and suggestions all for the benefit of us. He was always conscious of our budget constraints and always gave us input into the subs we chose, the different options available to us, and what he thought was best for us and the house. From day one, he always had our backs and treated us like family, and he put his heart into it as if it were his own. The quality of the work, from his employees to his subs, was outstanding. We cannot put into words how amazing this process was with David by our side. He truly made the building experience, which can often be difficult and stressful for clients, as relaxed and stress-free as could be. His professional team performed with nothing but the highest standards, and his outstanding work and support of us exceeded our expectations. Our home David built for us was finished on budget, on time, and exactly as we envisioned it.”

“David and his team did a great job completing our home ahead of schedule and on budget. Throughout the project, David helped us find the best subcontractors in the valley to turn our vision into reality. David constantly pulled ideas and showed us examples from his wide variety of completed projects, helping us find solutions to aesthetic and budget hurdles we encountered.

“This note bespeaks our overwhelming satisfaction with your company and all of the employees and subcontractors you brought to bear upon our building project. Your professionalism was of the highest level, and the outcome has been stellar. Throughout my many years of life and living through multiple building projects, without a doubt, our experience with you and your company remains the pinnacle.
As our discussions and planning began in January–February 2020, you demonstrated a keen sense of understanding the reality of the pandemic situation as it unfolded. As a retired physician, I cannot thank you enough for that approach. As your work progressed, you and your folks constantly maintained awareness and vigilance with respect to the health and protection of my wife, Cindy, and me. For that, I will be forever grateful. Then, as the project progressed, the high quality of the workmanship became apparent, and for that, I am also grateful. The project, which was extensive and multifactorial, was then completed on time, almost to the day and for that, I am profoundly grateful.
We cannot thank you enough for this experience with your company. You and your company are of the highest caliber, and our recommendation for you is unequivocal. We are proud to refer to you as our builder but even more so as our friend.

Mountain time: It’s a real thing, and most people here in Crested Butte operate on its clock. For the most part, it’s a wonderful thing, and it’s certainly a big part of why we chose to live here. But when you’re trying to get important, time-sensitive things done—like, say, a bathroom remodel—mountain time can be maddening. And that’s why we’re really thankful we chose to hire David to do our remodel. Among the few in town who operate on business time, David is also transparent, honest, responsive, and appreciative of your business, however big or small the job might be.

Matt and Kate114 Elk Avenue

“I researched several builders in the Crested Butte area. I knew what to look for, being that I’m a full-time contractor myself. The project was a complete gut job for an older condo. From start to finish, David was right there to answer any questions I had. He laid out a very detailed budget, worked full time with my designer, and got the job completed on time with no issues. I’d recommend David again and again for any construction project. He’s exactly what I was looking for, and I commend him for his hard work.”

Andrew ChristmanCrested Butte, CO

I would highly recommend them for any professional project.”

The board of directors and the membership are very pleased with the result and would highly recommend David Gross.”

From the beginning, his honesty and integrity were very reassuring. We would highly recommend David Gross for your future projects!”

Shannon & Tom M.Homeowner

“Expecting to take a few days to select a general contractor, we discovered it took only two. After all our interviews, there was no question; we wanted David.
David stood out not only for the quality of his work but for the fact he listened to “our” needs. He gave advice and suggestions, but most importantly, it was our money and our house.
It was a ten-month adventure of highs and lows. We had built other homes, so we didn’t go in blind as to what can occur. David and his crew did a beautiful job and we love our home.
Thank you, David, for all the hard work.”

Lonnie Eichinger Meridian Lake Meadows

“Our family couldn’t be happier with our home that David Gross build for us. The home is what we envisioned and blew our expectations away. We were hardly present during the construction process, however, we got consistent updates and pictures of the progress. The level of quality and craftsmanship is exactly what we hoped for. David and his team made sure we got what we wanted and worked with our budget and timeline. David Gross and his team take pride in their homes and make sure you get a quality home.”
