The Aspen Story
We’ve never wavered from the path we set out on over 20 years ago. The simple idea, yet one that required consistently great efforts to bring to life, was to create a culture of sincere collaboration between Aspen and our clients. It was never about just building beautiful homes that make a statement – to us that was a given, as we’ve always possessed talented individuals to make that happen. It was about creating relationships that last after the last nail is hammered.
That’s because we play a role in building a community. While we’ve garnered awards and recognition of which we’re proud – what gives us the greatest pleasure is knowing that people trust we’ll always do the right thing. Aspen Homes has a reputation of listening to our clients and sub-contractors, stressing the importance of team effort. When we work together maintaining the highest level of reliability and integrity, then that team turns into a family.
Our home designers, interior designers and project managers are all cut from the same cloth: we keep an open dialogue, deliver what we say we will deliver, and place the highest priority on honesty. And the result is always the same – superior quality homes that seamlessly embody the spirit of the Great Northwest.

Todd has worked in all aspects of the construction business throughout his career from concrete foundations to excavating and roofing – he has done it all. Todd and Zetta started Aspen Homes in the early 90s with a vision to build dream homes for clients with the highest quality end product and exceptional customer service. That dream has been a reality for over 20 years as they’ve watched their family grow alongside their thriving business to now include five children. Todd and Zetta are currently members in the North Idaho Building Contractor’s Association, an Idaho Registered Master Builder, and are well known for their showcase homes in the annual Parade of Homes.
