About Us

Jake Walsh – President

Jake moved from Chicago to Durango in 1997 to study Geology at Fort Lewis College. In 1999 he began his career as a home builder where he realized his calling and turned his full attention to the science of home building. In 2006 Jake formed JT Builders, Inc. As owner, manager, and builder, he has gained invaluable experience in residential construction and is well known as a dependable and trustworthy business owner. Jake prides himself on constructing sustainable and efficient new homes, additions, and remodels. He devotes time to attending building science seminars and is committed to continually learn and apply new, efficient ideas and techniques to his projects. Jake’s motto is “Simple, Strong, Sustainable”. His passion for sustainable home design grows daily; with this growth he has realized the need for retrofitting existing homes with the efficient techniques and products now available. From this has stemmed Durango Home Solutions, allowing Jake to share his passion with existing home owners. His goals are to live here, play here, and help people feel more comfortable in their homes.
