When Dan Fuller, owner of Denver’s Haley Custom Homes, set out to transform his business in 2016, he had three key objectives in mind.
“I realized that custom home builders like myself were continuing to fail their clients in three major areas,” says Dan. “These areas were keeping to a budget, keeping to a schedule and ensuring quality control to minimize punch list items at the end of the job.”
To solve for these common shortfalls, Dan developed the Accelerated Precision Build System™ (APB), a methodology that supports homeowners through the home build and remodel processes with the highest level of attention and care. Dan notes that this results in reduced construction costs, decreased build time and eliminated errors. It also embodies the “quality over quantity” mantra that is core to how Haley Custom Homes serves its clients.
“Our APB system is currently used in all Haley Custom Homes remodeling and new home construction projects,” says Dan. “It helps us guarantee the highest attention to detail for each of our clients that we work with.”
This process was put to particularly impactful use when the Haley team engaged with the homeowners for a recent Denver area home build project. The homeowners had been struggling to navigate their relationship with their prior builder, grappling with ever-changing budgets, prices and timelines.
“After almost a year of wasted efforts trying to get the project going with a different firm, we turned to Haley Custom Homes to help,” say the homeowners. “Haley Custom Homes was able to get us in touch with an architect, who turned our vision into a plan. From there, the Haley Custom Homes Team took over. We had an aggressive timeline and the Haley team beat it by more than a month. The transformation that occurred was incredible. The team constantly checked in with us to make sure that we understood the process. We are so happy with our incredible home.”
Warm welcome meets bright modernity in this stunning contemporary farmhouse. From its striking structure to its immaculate details, it’s a home that personifies livable luxury.
“The beauty of this neighborhood is that there were no restrictions on architectural design,” says Dan. “This allowed the homeowners and architect—Don Goerig of Goerig Design—along with the Haley team to work with a blank slate.”
The abode emphasizes the timeless over the trendy, a purposeful decision that imbues the home with a cozy brilliance. The gorgeous façade welcomes visitors into a magnificent great room with lofty 28-foot ceilings. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors lead to the outdoor living space—a multipurpose patio and lawn ideal for day-to-day or for entertaining—while also inviting sunlight and lush backyard views to spill into the space. This abundant natural light illuminates the room’s luscious floors and sleek, standout fireplace.
The nearby kitchen continues this bright, natural motif. The two distinct kitchen islands and countertops are wrapped with custom stone slab, while two deep farmhouse sinks and expansive working space maximize functionality. Both island and dining table seating make it a prime gathering space lit with dainty globe fixtures. The custom stove hood and beautiful cabinets—a blend of warm wood tones and luminous white—fully embrace the home’s modern farmhouse character.
Using classic natural materials was a point of emphasis for the Haley team as part of this build. This is further showcased in the construction of the home’s façade and in the primary bathroom, a retreat-like space that includes dual sinks, supple wood cabinetry and a voluminous double shower wrapped in stone slab.
Dan notes that he is proud of this project both for the spectacular finished structure and the relationship that he and his team forged with the homeowners.
“The homeowners had a clear vision of what they wanted,” says Dan. “But at the same time, they trusted our ideas and expertise. It was truly a collaboration where all egos were checked at the front door. The result was an incredible experience and fabulous end result.”
