All About Colorado Woodworks

Welcome to Colorado Woodworks, a cherished name in residential construction proudly serving Fort Collins and the surrounding areas. Established over 35 years ago, our family-owned and operated company has been a cornerstone in the community, dedicated to turning dreams into reality, with a touch of craftsmanship that stands the test of time.

Our Story

Founded by the Kidder family, Colorado Woodworks has deep roots in Fort Collins. What began as a small venture rooted in passion and dedication has blossomed into a legacy that spans generations. Our commitment to quality, integrity, and personalized service has been the guiding force behind our enduring success.

New Chapter

With heartfelt gratitude and deep appreciation, we announce the well-earned retirement of George Kidder, the visionary founder of Colorado Woodworks. After 40 years of dedicated service and a remarkable legacy in the construction industry, George has decided to step back, and we take this moment to express our sincere thanks for everything he has done and, of course, we can’t forget to extend our thanks and appreciation to his equally fantastic partner-in-everything Lorraine. As they set sail into this new chapter of their lives, we raise a glass to their joint leadership, laughter, and the indomitable spirit they’ve brought to the Colorado Woodworks family.

George instilled in us a commitment to excellence, client satisfaction, and collaborative teamwork. His leadership has not only shaped the projects we undertake but has also influenced the professional development of those fortunate enough to work alongside him.

While George will be deeply missed in the day-to-day operations of Colorado Woodworks, his spirit and vision will continue to guide us. The values he instilled will serve as a compass, ensuring that Colorado Woodworks remains a beacon of quality and innovation.
