Incorporated in 2006, The River’s Edge Studio is a family-owned business in every sense. What began 12 years ago as a small partnership has grown into a quality, professional company that prides itself, not only on the creation of large, custom home construction, but the dedication to smaller, more intimate projects as well.
Owners, Greg and Kelly Downum, have made the Gunnison Valley their home for over 22 years. They share their busy life with their three young children, and numerous pets. When not working, the Downums can be found enjoying all that this are has to offer; mountain biking, running, snowboarding, hiking, rafting, and camping.
Greg has over 21 solid years of log and timber frame experience right here in the Gunnison Valley. He has subcontracted his personal services through many of the general contractors in Crested Butte, Mt. Crested Butte, Gunnison, and surrounding area. He also works directly with homeowners on new construction and remodels, and understands the importance of open and direct communication with all of his clients. The River’s Edge Studio has completed full projects as far away as Texas and Florida, and those long-distant relationships are just as important as those close to home.
Greg found his interest in building and construction when he was very young, working alongside his grandfather on simple projects in his garage. His love of creating grew into after-school and summer jobs in landscaping, until he moved to Gunnison to start his first year of college. It was while attending Western State Colorado University that he secured a labor position with a well-known and respected general contractor in Crested Butte. His skills and interest in log and timber construction quickly grew, and he moved steadily towards using his knowledge
Blending old world workmanship with the latest technologies in design and manufacturing, Greg and his carefully hand-chosen, experienced crew, offer industry-leading quality at affordable prices. They deliver honesty, unparalleled experience, and dedication to each project that they are a part of.
