Tom Sherlock has been building and remodeling homes in the Roaring Fork Valley for over 20 years and is the founder and principal of SH Building Group. As a boutique firm, SH Built limits the number of projects they take on each year, allowing them to stay focused on their clients’ needs to ensure every project is held to a rigorous standard. Tom is involved in daily operations and oversees the successful completion of every project. Together with his team, SH Built has remodeled over 400,000 square feet of commercial and residential spaces in Aspen, Snowmass Village, and the Roaring Fork Valley. 

In our conversation we discussed the challenges of the pandemic-fueled construction boom and what it takes to transition from a start-up to a successful firm that can compete with established builders. We also talked about how planning ahead for a major project, before permits are issued, can make a huge difference when it comes to organization, preparation, timelines, and creativity of the finished product.
