At the International Builder’s Show in Las Vegas, the National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) recognized John Stevens, owner and founder of Sopris Homes, as achieving the designation of Graduate Master Builder. John is now 1 of only 6 Graduate Master Builders in Colorado. To receive recognition as a Graduate Master Builder one must have ten years of building experience and complete a series of specific courses. The NAHB claims the Graduate Master Builder to be “the ultimate symbol of a building professional.”
