Our History

Saunders Company has been building homes since 1979 when Leadville was booming with over 3000 miners employed underground at the Climax and Black Cloud mines.  Three years later the mines were closing and housing demand dropped like a lead ore bucket.  Our focus then transitioned towards mountain vacation homes as Leadville, Twin Lakes and the surrounding area  were being discovered for both their majestic mountain scenery and easy accessibility to outdoor recreational adventures.  Today clients are both vacation home owners from all over the USA as well as full-time residents.  We build traditional frame homes, timber frame homes and log homes.  Floor plans have ranged from 900 square feet to over 7500 square feet.
