About D. Elfring








David Elfring is an architect designing custom homes in Colorado and beyond.

David Elfring Architect has designed homes on rural ranchland, Colorado mountain sites, and in high-end subdivisions. Included in this website is a guide to designing a custom home with the help of an architect.

Building a custom home is a challenging process, but it can fulfill the dream of a lifetime. A successful design should respond to the client's needs and dreams. A good design produces a beautiful and dramatic, but efficient and cost effective home.

Designing is a process of decision. The design of a custom home must respond to many criteria. Site factors, the budget, energy requirements and, above all, the families' needs and wishes must be combined and balanced. The resulting home represents both a practical solution to those criteria, and something beyond simple shelter.

Mr. Elfring works closely with his clients to produce a design that suits their specific needs. His homes are carefully designed to fit their sites, take advantage of views and meet the requirements of our Colorado climate.

All designs meet the demands of our modern lifestyle, incorporating up-to-date construction methods and materials. Elegant custom homes that are strong in spirit, comfortable and even eccentric are designed for you by an architect that listens.

VACATION  HOMES:  David Elfring Architect has designed a number of vacation homes, 2nd homes and ski homes. People are drawn to the beauty of Colorado, buy property and seek to build a second home. They often desire a home that is done in a rustic or Colorado style and fits into our dramatic landscape.

Some clients want a ski home, a place to visit in the winter and use as a base for downhill skiing. These houses are located in the Colorado high country, areas with heavy snowfall, where the design must take into account the severe winter climate. These homes also end up visited throughout the year as the owners discover Colorado has other attractions than skiing.

Other clients buy property in rural parts of the state. They select their sites based on views, privacy and character. These clients seek help in designing a 2nd home or vacation home with comfort and privacy as their main goals. These designs are often rustic in nature.

David Elfring Architect has designed retirement homes, vacation homes, 2nd homes and ski homes in Walsenburg, La Vita, Tabernash, Silverthorn, Fraser, Gunnison and Salida.
