Wattle & Daub Contractors

Wattle & Daub Contractors is one of the premier historic preservation contractors in the Rocky Mountain region. Because we focus exclusively on historic preservation and we have built our business model around a reputation for outstanding quality, Wattle & Daub provides an ideal environment for true craftspeople to practice their crafts, with our projects ranging in size and grandeur from rustic log cabins to courthouses and state capitols. Yet, because we are committed to preserving, not just historic buildings, the preservation trades, we are also interested in speaking with younger people who are just launching their preservation careers. Our work takes us throughout the Front Range of Colorado and Wyoming, but our shop is located in Fort Collins, Colorado, which always ranks near the top of national surveys of the most desirable places to live.
