There is a reason why so many people wish to make Northern Colorado their home. If you spend even just a little time in Fort Collins, chances are you won’t want to leave. Whether you are a mountaineer, ski bum or history buff, there are reasons you should make the move to Colorado and have a custom home built. Not convinced that Colorado is the state for you? Read on then decide.

Plenty of Sunshine

Everybody loves a sunny day and in Colorado, you enjoy over 300 of them every year. Technically, Colorado only has 30 to 40 days a year that are overcast, leaving you with plenty of days to go outside and enjoy the sunshine.

The Rockies

The Rocky Mountains have something for everyone. Even if you don’t snow ski, hike, go mountain biking, hate nature and can’t stand the high altitude, at least you can still enjoy their beauty from the front window of your home.

Stay Busy

If you are into fitness or outdoor activities, Colorado has plenty to offer. There are literally thousands of miles of hiking and mountain biking trails, river rafting, skiing, fishing and hundreds of other things you can do in the outdoors.


Colorado has been labeled the Napa Valley of beer. This is of no surprise as we are home to some of the best craft breweries in the nation. As of 2013, Colorado was home to more than 200 breweries, most of them microbreweries.

The People

Yes, the people of Colorado are special. Think about it, with all the activities and all of the sunshine we get, is it a big surprise that we are friendly people?
