Doug Elfline, Co-Founder
Doug spent summers during his school and college years apprenticing with his father’s Colorado-based plumbing company. He went on to earn a degree in interior design from the Colorado Art Institute. After graduating in 1993, he moved to the Pacific Northwest, teaming up with general contractor David Kvamme.
Now after over 30 years in the building industry, Doug has a full grasp of all aspects of the building process and a depth of knowledge that allows him to hold plumbing, electrical, and other subcontractors to the highest quality standards. Just as he strives for quality in every aspect of a building project, Doug is constantly looking for ways to cut homeowner costs by repurposing materials and making the most of each hour on the job site. In conjunction with his interior design background, Doug has an uncommon ability to envision and troubleshoot projects before they are built, saving his clients time and money. He has a well-earned reputation for his high level of carpentry expertise, craftsmanship, trustworthiness, and knowledge in green and sustainability solutions
