I had a very unique experience recently at my first visit to one of John’s traditional open houses where he brings together the owners of the home, colleagues, clients as well as the professionals who built and brought the project to its successful completion. Not only was there the opportunity to appreciate the physical and esthetic qualities, thoughtful design and attention to all the details but getting the ‘back story’ from John’s clients themselves. From my extensive conversations with these home owners it was so apparent to see how John was able to so impressively address the successful integration of the site selection, building components, functionalities as well as environmental sensitivities – all culminating in a really stunning new home.
Our experience with the KDC family has been wonderful - and the journey was great all along the way. Many folks contributed toward helping us achieve our dream home.
As I told John Y when he stopped by a while back, we’re
doing particularly well thanks to the renovation. The house
is great, and every chance we get we tell people about your
company. We're grateful on a daily basis for the great job
the crew did on the house.
It was a pleasure to return home from our trip yesterday
morning and know that all the work was complete and our home
looks lovely! We will definitely consider your company again
should we have future projects and would recommend Kurowski
I wanted to quickly write and congratulate you on a
beautiful house. Gary, myself, and others from the office
attended the open house a few weeks ago and were very
impressed with how everything is turning out. We all agreed
the spaces felt comfortable and were happy to see the built
house exceeding our expectations. Also, you should be very
confident in the quality of your new home - John Kurowski
and his team are doing an amazing job. Viewing the photos on
his website has been a regular activity in the office and we
have found the passion, care and quality John put into the
house refreshing and inspirational.
You are a breath of fresh air to the building science community in that you apply sound building science principles that allow your homes to surpass the rest in energy, comfort, durability and beauty.
I would like to express that the working relationship we
as a trade contractor have with Kurowski Development is
outstanding. The excellence that you and Marilyn and
your staff, John Y, and Carol is far and above the norm.
Everyone is very professional, courteous, and very
Most of all we thank you for our incredible new home. This has been our dream for many years, and it is everything we had hoped for and more. Every day we appreciate the solid construction and the beautiful interior and fine finishes…Thank you so very much for our beautiful new Kurowski home, and for making our dream come true. It was such a pleasure to work with you and all the people associated with KDC, and we thank you every day.
24 years in your house and loving it! Thank you!!
I walked the house on Friday, and was very impressed with the progress to date. The quality of work and attention to detail you have demonstrated has done justice to this great house. I am sure K. and L. are very happy. I am always confident that when I have completed a design and the associated drawings, you will complete my vision with quality and integrity.
My wife and I have been very pleased with the quality and professionalism of the Kurowski organization and all of it's employees and would highly recommend them to our friends and if need be we would use their services again.
Kurowski surpassed our expectation in terms of communications during the building process; the quality of their work; their attention to detail and their complete honesty about every situation and detail.
Congratulations on such a well-deserved award - But they really didn’t have to vote on this - they could have just called me and I would have told them "You're The Best" !!!
It has been the best house we have ever owned. If we have any problems, Mr. Kurowski takes care of them right away.
Our builder is wonderful.
While watching Kitty's alma mater, Kansas, go down in defeat in the NCAA Tournament, we had a "Kurowski Moment" with Mark and Sydney, and Ferd and Christy, who had purchased the home that you built on the corner.
We were all talking about how happy and proud we were to be owners of Kurowski homes. You were toasted and, as always, your future homeowners can call your "band of Kurowskiites" in Lowry for a reference!
John, I wish you continued success as well and please call me at any time if I can be of service to you. Very truly yours,
My wife Jackie and I have been subscribers to CH&L for years and enjoy your magazine very much. We especially appreciated the article on John Kurowski and the Built Green movement that you published in your most recent issue. In an era where glitz and high cost frequently are confused with true quality in high-end housing, Mr. Kurowski's dedication to intelligent and ecologically-friendly design and construction is both admirable and worthy of the attention you gave him in your article.
We applaud John Kurowski, who is a very talented and dedicated leader in the residential construction industry. Kurowski Development's long record of outstanding success speaks for itself due to their commitment to providing high quality products, beautiful design features, and superb customer rewards. We fully support the Built Green Program and admire Mr. Kurowski's courageous - yet often controversial - struggles and achievements. Even after 30 years of major successes and numerous appointments and awards, John remains humble and selfless in pursuing and implement the cause. Maybe his perseverance more that the end result speaks best to John's nature. We appreciate this opportunity for John to further educate the public and the industry on conserving the earth's precious resources. Bravo John - we believe that you are achieving so much more than "...just doing your part..."
I recently heard of your "2003 Winner for Custom Builder, Front Range Region" Award. I wanted to take a moment to congratulate you and your team. Energy efficiency is a high priority, especially with the cost of energy expected to rise this winter season. Your commitment to improving Colorado's quality of life and environment is commendable. Congratulations and best wishes!
From the looks of the drawing on the invitation, the beauty of the new model is classic with John's expertise and class. We still, however, believe that the home John built for us is the most beautiful home in the world.
I often tell friends how smart our house is: with the large eaves, it stays cool in the summer, and with the lower sun in winter, we get plenty of heating to not require the heaters during daytime. Well done!
I thought I would pass on a compliment you and your team received this week while I was visiting the sales office. In speaking with Rick he said that both he and Mike had been over to our home. They both feel it is one of the finest homes ever built in the community. He went on to say that Kurowski Development is a premier builder and can meet any challenge. I couldn't agree more!
Thank you for the photo album. We love it! It is on of the many special details you have done for us that has made building our home a pleasant experience.
Congratulations! This is one of the highest (out of more than 300) Home Energy Rating scores ever received by Energy Rated Homes of Colorado. This is the highest Rating I have had the pleasure of performing out of over 100 that I have completed.
After living in our new home for the last three months and getting to know your craftsmen while they build out the downstairs, we thought it might be appropriate to tell you our impressions. As I come from a family of contractors, engineers and architects I think I can state unequivocally that you and your crew represent one of the best teams around. Your ability to listen, understand and then implement on a timely basis are an attribute not too many contractors have accomplished. Your foreman is among the finest. He is an inspiration to me as I see him coordinate the work efforts of all the subcontractors, never forgetting all the details and never giving up until the job is done correctly.
Our Firm has had the pleasure of working with Mr. John Kurowski of Kurowski Development over the past five years. During that time we had many occasions to work closely with John and his superintendents on projects that involved both companies. As Architects, we have found that John's knowledge and the knowledge of his superintendents of the construction industry was a great asset in completing the projects on time, within budget, and with a very high degree of professionalism. The quality of wok completed by John and his staff is exemplary, and speaks well of not only his organization, but the whole design and construction team required to complete the project.
Pursuant to my sending you the energy audit chart last week, be advised that based on my calculations, I have found my energy costs to be just about the same for my home at 5 Silver Aspen which has 4,600 square feet as that for the condominium I previously owned in Lakewood which had 950 square feet.
