With a shared vision for your custom residence, our principals and team will work diligently—from the master plan to the smallest detail—to make your dream home a reality. Couple that with the know-how of mountain building, with its challenging sites, soils, and extreme weather, and it’s easy to understand why RM Construction is the go-to builder in the Colorado River and Roaring Fork River Valleys.


Efficient Western Slope Home Builders

Meet Bob Gibson and Blake Piland. As a longstanding Western Slope builder, Bob Gibson saw a need for an efficient home-building company in this part of western Colorado, with a focus on quality, budget, and schedule. So in 2013, Bob formed RM Construction in New Castle, Colorado. Shortly after that Blake Piland came on board. Their partnership, and their approach, has been tremendously effective. Their home construction projects come in on time and on budget. How? Through thoughtful and budget-conscious materials and finishes sourcing, direct and fair negotiations with subcontractors, and conscientious management of projects. “To me, it’s amazing that six years ago we started RM Construction with a $100 deposit in a bank account and now we’re one of the largest builders in the Colorado high country,” says Bob. “We’re so grateful for the positive word-of-mouth from our clients who’ve made this happen, literally without any advertising.”

Experienced Professionals Focused on Service, Quality, and Results

RM Construction empowers the customer, from start to finish, with tools and strategies that are unique to our company. We immediately start by a detailed assessment of each project’s need, understanding that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to home construction.

More than your Average Construction Firm

Many clients like to peruse our library of more than 700 build-ready architectural plans. In some cases, an RM customer will simply choose one of the designs and we’ll build the home exactly to specifications. In other cases, the library gives the homeowner ideas to visualize desired style, size, and finishes. Or, it can simply be a jumping-off place to convey a visual representation of what they imagine as an outcome and provide a platform to begin a more detailed discussion and direction.

What Lies Ahead

“As far as the future, I think we’ll continue to thrive if we don’t lose sight of the values that have made us successful,” says Bob. “And as the cost of housing continues to rise, the builder who can work within a well-defined budget and deliver a quality product will prosper.”
