ABOUT US

We aim to demystify the construction experience.

Iron Forest Building Co. is a company of carpenters, builders, and craftsmen who are dedicated to making your construction project efficient and enjoyable. We know from experience that when you’re building in the Rocky Mountains there are countless details, design decisions, and processes to go through to get the job done correctly. Let us carry that burden for you.

Meet our fearless leaders.

John Eland

Owner / President

John started building at a young age in Oklahoma before moving to Colorado in 2002. Once in Colorado, John began framing and trimming custom homes throughout the County. Recognizing a need for better communication and client relationships in the custom building world, John began building custom homes and eventually started Iron Forest Building Company.

On the weekends, John can be found skiing the backcountry, fly fishing in the Blue River, or hanging out with his family of 6.

Paul Steinweg

VP Construction / Operations

Paul moved to Colorado from Maryland in 2003 “just for a season”. Paul was introduced to the custom building world shortly thereafter from a budgeting / scheduling / purchasing angle. Since then, Paul has been a part of well over 100 high end residential projects from start to finish. While John’s tools consist of trim guns and levels, Paul pulls from a quiver of cost-tracking spreadsheets, schedules, and cost negotiations.

When not working, you can find Paul enjoying time with his family of 5, long distance running on mountain trails, or on a bike.
