home | about us

Your vision becomes our inspiration.

It takes careful planning to live life unscripted; you need a builder who can interpret your dreams through every detail. A skilled team that can collaborate with architects and suppliers, designers and tradesmen. An experienced company that can take charge of a complex construction project from idea to realization.

George Shaeffer founded our company in 1979 when Vail was just taking off. Our company grew alongside the community, establishing relationships with local architects, building a reputation for excellence in home construction and adding to a portfolio of awe-inspiring residences throughout the Vail Valley and Colorado.

Today, the company that George built is led by David Hyde. Marking our 35th year in business, we introduced a new name: Shaeffer Hyde Construction.

As a LEED-accredited professional, Hyde continues to move the company forward, helping design teams and clients navigate sustainable design and construction practices and introducing technology that streamlines cost modeling and catalogs the details of every project.

Every family and every property is absolutely unique. That’s why we balance individual priorities with creative solutions, collaborating closely with clients, while never compromising an amazing outcome.

Singular. Stunning.

Expert craftsmanship is about precision and the extra effort passion brings. We have a reputation for superior construction that lets us stand proudly behind every house we build. And while we love making first impressions, in the end it’s all about lasting relationships.
