Building is
in our blood.

Coming from a long line of builders, Dan and Kortney Geis founded SummitRidge Custom Homes with a mission to build sustainable, long-lasting homes that highlight the beauty of Colorado.

Our Story

You could say that building is in Co-Founder, Dan Geis’s blood. His grandfather and father worked in the construction industry their entire lives and Dan followed in their footsteps by doing the same for the past 20+ years.

In starting SummitRidge Custom Homes, Dan and Kortney were able to fulfill their dream by using their skills and experience to build houses that are truly homes.

We would 100% recommend SummitRidge to anyone considering building a custom home in the mountains!

We had a very positive experience building our custom home with SummitRidge. Dan and his team were always professional, upbeat, and very customer-service driven. As with any building project, there were a few inevitable bumps in the road, but Dan made sure they were handled as smoothly as possible.  We always knew that if we had a concern, he would be willing to listen and would collaborate with us in order to find an agreeable solution.

Eric & Annie Adams

As first time home builders, working with Dan and his team at SummitRidge was a positive experience.

The team worked closely with us through every step and decision ... always showing a willingness to explain the detail, offer various options and push for what he thought we would really appreciate in our custom home.

Jon & Andrea Hamel

My wife and I have had Dan and the SummitRidge team do projects for us twice. 

In both cases, they were conscientious, transparent, and got the job done. In construction things do not always go as planned. The measure of a good company is how they react in this situation. Dan and his team stand behind their work and will make sure they get it right!

Greg Harrington

Always impressed with the finished product.

New construction has many moving parts and they know how to keep it running smoothly.

We worked with SummitRidge on an addition to our 1960’s Evergreen home. 

The total experience from initial estimating to final completion exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Dan and his team as their attention to detail and responsiveness were always impressive and appreciated.

Dan Geis and his team helped me finish my log home in Pine, CO. 

I was in a tough place because my original builder quit the project half-way through. SummitRidge Custom Homes adjusted and repaired all of the things that were not correct, as well as finished the build as described by the plans. They did an outstanding job and I will use them again on another log cabin I’m building. Highly Recommended! Great job!

Felix Keil

He had our total confidence throughout the project.

Dan was our onsite General Contractor for our log home. He managed and oversaw the entire job in a professional and expert way. 

He kept us informed throughout the project and worked to meet our every need to complete satisfaction. We enjoyed working with him and thank him for all he did to keep us calm and relaxed during construction.

Janice & Rick

My experience walking through my home was, “wow.” 

Dan and the team had done precisely what they promised all those months ago. SummitRidge was able to do a video walk around every week. I’d 100% recommend Dan and the team. Very well done, guys!
