With every project we strive to meet our clients expectations. But don't take our word for it, read below and hear what our clients think of our work...
"My experience with Mark Bondurant and
Rare Earth Builders was the best building experience, yet! This was my
third project from the ground up and our healthy built home turned out
beautifully. Mark is a true gentleman and he surrounds himself with a
fine crew. The site was always managed well, clean, and efficient.
Each member offered creative and cost effective ideas while maintaining a
quality of workmanship far exceeding our expectations. The efficiency
of our home was put through a test this winter, and has come through
with flying colors........power bills still low, and all systems in
tact. We love our home, and we love the guys who built it......I would
and do recommend them to anyone I know."
"They rocked it. I hired Mark because we have a similar aesthetic vision. We also both are committed to sustainability—within reason and given cost limitations.
An added bonus is that he and his team are incredibly nice folks whom I enjoyed spending time with every day. Defying most home renovators belief, I was bummed when REB finished our project. Our dog was even sadder than me. He now greets any man carrying a toolbox as if he's an old friend. Surely they’re carrying lunch scraps for him, right?
Because Mark and his team left me with such an amazing addition to our home, I recovered pretty quickly after they left the premises. Solid, tight construction and serious attention to detail are hallmarks of REB. Plus Mark has a wonderful aesthetic eye, adding details that never would have occurred to me—including curved built-in bookshelves, plaster-textured walls, and an arched doorway.
I’m considering further renovations just so I can invite the team back for a while. Plus the dog would be thrilled."
"Mark and his crew from Rare Earth Builders created an incredible
one of a kind home for me in 2004. In addition to all the great solar
features and designs inherent in the architectural plan, he and his crew
added an element of artistry and craftsmanship to the design that was
truly wonderful to see unfold, and which still amazes me as I look
around my home. I love the unexpected nooks and crannies and special
touches, such as curved windowsills and arches over doors.
But beyond building and craftsman skills, Mark stands out in his
profession for his integrity, reliability and honesty. I was not able
to be around for much of the hands-on building, but felt totally able to
rely on his judgment and advice. He was easy to work with, listened
well, and gladly let me try my hand at anything I did have time for."
"Thank you for being available to build my
beautiful sanctuary. As you know, I chose your company to convert a
rental duplex property I owned, into my home. We began discussing the
project in January 2009, construction started July 1 and I moved in
This was my first remodel of this magnitude
which required it to be gutted and totally remodeled. My goal was energy
efficiency, primarily saving on utility costs, which we achieved within
The whole experience was life changing as I
learned so much in the process. Whenever I tell my friends that the
build was seamless and actually fun, they are amazed. I credit that to
your knowledge of the industry, your willingness to discuss even the
simplest detail, the time you took to help me make decisions and your
prompt attention and response to all calls and emails. Your crew was
polite, fun, professional, attentive, timely and always willing to
answer my questions.
Without a doubt, your integrity, character
and work ethic is to be admired. You are a man of principle and of your
Thank you for building my beautiful custom
home. I wish you many years of success."

"My wife Marina and I moved from Southern
Colorado to Back Mountain in the fall of 2004. We purchased a beautiful
13 acre parcel of land north of Black Mountain and began the process of
building our "dream house." We first hired a talented architect to
design an earth friendly home that would be totally off the electrical
grid. Our land is located at 3,000 feet above sea level and is at the
end of a cove. Our home site is south facing which provides passive
solar gain for winter heating and year-round solar panel energy for both
hot water and electricity. We planned to use autoclaved aerated
concrete blocks for the above ground walls.
With plans in hand, we started asking around
for the best builder to handle our green building project. Mark
Bondurant's name was suggested by our architect and other people we knew
in the area who had experience with green builders. We interviewed
Mark and were impressed with both his knowledge and his integrity. We
trusted him immediately and he never let us down.
Mark has a talented and personable work crew.
They worked hard and were easy to talk to. Mark seems to only hire the
type of people who are more like friends than normal laborers. They
really take pride in their work. One of best things about Mark is that
he answers his phone. In this day and age that is refreshing.
Mark did a great job of hiring sub-contractors
for things like drywall, excavation, block wall construction, concrete
pumping, stucco work, tile laying, plumbing, electrical, etc. He worked
with us patiently when we had last minute changes to the plans. Our
house was completed in a timely manner and we are 100% satisfied with

us by our architect when we wanted to remodel our retirement home in
Black Mountain. Seems they had worked on her home as well.
have been consistently impressed with the high degree of
professionalism, honesty and care that went into our project and are
completely satisfied with the entire process. We were absentee
owners during the project, living
some nine hours away by car.
We were in good hands the entire time
and the finished home is even more beautiful than we had imagined it
would be when we started.
