A Reputable Name in the Home Building Industry


Having lived in Durango, CO for 25 years, Russ and his wife, Pam are proud to call this mountain town their home. With over 30 years’ experience in all aspects of the home designing and building process, Russ prides himself on being a results oriented, hands-on construction, design and development expert. Russ’ vast experience in construction includes building homes in California as a licensed general contractor as well as building an underwater home in Hawaii.

Clients often describe Russ and Pam as “part of the family”. Their work ethic is simple: to communicate with everyone involved (be it clients, subcontractors, suppliers, or employees) with the highest standard of integrity and respect.

Pam and Russ have been married for over 40 years and love working to create beautiful dream homes for their clients. They are also passionate about the Durango Derailers, a community effort raising over $50k annually to help local families. The fund helps 3-5 families, every week, with lodging and gas vouchers on their trips to Children’s Hospital.
As an integral part of the Custom Touch Builders, LLC team, Pam expertly manages the office. All aspects of the construction process are documented by Pam and she will work with each client to find innovative solutions in the Durango area for making sure the home building process is seamless. Pam is an avid animal lover and you will frequently find their two welsh springer spaniels, Maddie and Macie “helping out” at the office .
