What's in a Name?
Lee Bolin built his first home, start to finish, in 1975. In the 1980's he continued to build homes as a hobby in addition to running his framing business. It was during that time that the idea for Saddletree Homes began to form as Lee was looking for a name to describe the longevity, the artistic value, the strength and the quality of the homes he was building.
With his daughter very involved in showing horses he grew more and more familiar with various aspects of her hobby. One day as Lee was Driving he saw an old worn saddle leaning against a majestic oak tree, and that vision stuck with him.
He later learned that a "Saddletree" is the wooden support structure embedded in all saddles. Realizing that he had never seen a broken saddle, Saddletree now represents to him the strength, longevity, and artistic expression found in every home we build.
Longevity, Strength, Quality and Beauty
When Lee brought Saddletree Homes to Colorado in 1994 he brought with him the same quality homes he's been building for over 45 years. During his time as a home builder Lee has been through at least five down markets and has weathered each one.
The combination of his vision and his experience and the team of people who work with him have positioned Saddletree Homes to continue to build beautiful, quality, luxury homes in the current market and for many years to come.
