David Elfring Architect is located in Sedalia, Colorado, just southwest of Denver, Colorado. All custom homes, additions and remodels are designed and drawn by the architect. Emails, scanning and computer word processing are used extensively.

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, dreams and budget. A good design produces a beautiful and dramatic, but efficient and cost effective home.

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

David Elfring Architect designs distinctive, character filled custom homes full of life, light and handcrafted detail. He 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 David Elfring, an architect that listens.

Vacation Homes

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

Some clients want a ski home, or a place to visit in winter and use as a base for outdoor activities. 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 often end up visited throughout the year as the owners discover Colorado has attractions other 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 second home or a vacation home with comfort and privacy as their main goals. These designs are often rustic in nature, low maintenance and energy conserving.

David Elfring Architect has designed retirement homes, vacation homes, second homes and ski homes in Walsenburg, La Vita, Tabernash, Silverthorne, Frasier, Gunnison, Salida and Leadville.
