El Dorado

El Dorado

Ultimate Family Ski Cabin & Restful Retreat

The home was designed with the homeowner's family ancestry in mind, as well as the look and feel of a Bavarian chalet—perfect for the surrounding natural beauty of the Sierra Mountains. The homeowner wanted to create a sophisticated and warm home with and open floor plan and multiuse spaces—something that could easily transition from an intimate dinner for two, to a large gathering of family and friends.

In a world of so much mediocrity with little pride in one's work, Summit has exceeded my expectations. In construction, it is all about people and relationships…

The quality of the logs and work product is superior; treatment, finishing, cuts, and fitting of the logs are all a work of art and a credit to the men behind the chainsaws. - Rick K.
