John has assembled an outstanding team at Shively Construction. Their focus on quality and attention to detail gave us a dream home that radiates “old world craftsmanship” throughout. Monique and I could not be happier with our Shively Home. If you want a quality home, there is no substitute for a builder that takes pride in their work, and at Shively Construction, that pride is evident from top to bottom.
Working with John Shively of Shively Construction and his professional team was a great experience for us. John always had a positive attitude and was willing to incorporate unique architectural features into our home. He was on-site as needed addressing any challenges that arose with his talented and reliable job supervisor and sub-contractors. He worked well with all the other professionals such as the architect, designer, home automation and landscape crew and helped complete the extraordinary team we were lucky enough to have. Still, after 3 years, John always makes himself available and helps with any questions we have. We highly recommend Shively Construction and are always happy to share our experience.
About ten years ago, we built our mountain (7,000 ft) dream home. We knew nothing about the complexities of building at the altitude nor the special knowledge needed to build a house that can sustain 4 feet of snow on the roof. Combine that with thawing and freezing on a nightly basis, you can see why your choice of a builder is extremely important. We were lucky to be referred to Shively Construction by friends who built a multimillion dollar ranch and Shively was their contractor. Our house was finished on time, they listened to my ideas and helped me to achieve them, and completed all on budget. They even pointed out opportunities that I hadn’t envisioned After ten years, I have had no problems with the house. I think it is the highest compliment to say that your contractor and his wife have become very good friends. You absolutely will not go wrong if you choose Shively Construction.
I have worked with Shively Construction on several projects over the years and have just completed a sizable remodel with them. John and Kate Shively run their firm in a professional and yet personal manner. John attends all of the client meetings so he is aware of the decisions being made and can ensure the details are communicated to his project foremen. John’s years of experience in construction bring an ability to brainstorm and solve any issue that arises in a creative and positive way. I really enjoy the collaborative process that results in a well thought out and executed project!
I highly recommend Shively Construction for both new home construction and for remodels.
Best remodel project we have ever done. Their attention to detail is unparalleled. Shively Construction builds quality homes and with their home care service, our home receives personal attention beyond compare.
Shively Construction finished building our log home in 2006. We chose John Shively as our builder after seeing a remodel he did for a friend and liking the feel of their home. For our build, Shively’s supervisor and building crew were fantastic, talented, professional, helpful and creative. John Shively was incredible; we had many meetings during the planning and building process, threw around ideas and changes…and the end result is timeless and amazing. We had a wonderful experience throughout the whole process. We would both highly recommend John Shively and his family, as this is a family business. Some people dread building a new home; we would do it again with Shively Construction but we love our home too much to leave it! And, over the years, John has helped us when anything has been needed for our home. We can’t say enough about how excellent our experience has been with John Shively and Shively Construction.
We built a 6,200 square foot contemporary home in the middle of a Colorado forest that needed significant on-site construction ingenuity. The house design required the setting of many huge curved g-lam beams, a curved steel roof, the meticulous installation of tongue and groove cedar planks for the curved ceiling and numerous other challenges. Shively Construction, Inc. was able to tackle these challenges successfully in the field and provided us with a beautiful mountain retreat. With Shively’s integrity and focus on quality, we will happily engage them again if we ever embark on a similar journey in Routt County.
