Rocky Mountain Home Builders
Trust built through time.
The Chillcoots Story
Chillcoots are regional Rocky Mountain home builders established by Mark Bjerken in 1995 and based in Winter Park, Colorado. In 1986, Mark moved to Colorado from Northern Minnesota and brought with him the family tradition of being a hard worker and having an honest work ethic. Expanding upon his experience in Minnesota residential home building, he took a job in a local cabinet and millwork shop where he honed his skills for the next eight years. In 1995, Mark formed Chillcoots and began his career in the custom home construction market.
Building off its success as a local Grand County, Colorado business, Chillcoots has expanded its reach with several custom projects throughout the state and beyond. Chillcoots has established itself as a premier, high-end Rocky Mountain home builder willing to go the extra mile with each of their home builds.
Where We Build
Chillcoots’ roots began in Tabernash, Colorado so naturally, we have grown strong building numerous homes in “our backyard”. Over time we’ve extended our branches and have also had projects beyond Grand County, including ranches on the western slope, fishing lodges in the Rocky Mountains, and custom projects out of state. According to Mark Bjerken, the owner of Chillcoots, “We will travel for the right project, particularly in the west.” And if there should happen to be great flyfishing or mountain biking nearby, the Chillcoots crew will be even more likely to agree to take on a project.
If you are considering hiring a builder with our level of expertise and both high-quality craftsmanship and materials, we would encourage you to reach out to us for consideration in building your dream home.
Accolades & Community
Chillcoots is accredited by the Better Business Bureau and is also the recipient of multiple Parade of Homes awards. We have also had many of our homes featured in regional luxury home magazines and was nationally recognized by Integrated Magazine with a CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles Award.
