Robust home building will test Durango-area labor supply

Mild winter gives jump-start to expected busy building season
Nathan Mohan, owner of Mohan Construction, works on a home in the Twin Buttes subdivision on Wednesday as his dog, Jefe, enjoys the mild winter at the job site. The weather has allowed home construction to continue through the winter months in the Durango area.
Homes in Spring Creek Village have proved popular with teachers and everyday workers in Durango, said Tom Stilley, one of four partners on the project.
One home has been completed and is under contract in Twin Buttes, several more are under construction and a slew of new construction is slated to start in spring. Bob Smith, a contractor on the board of directors for the Home Builders Association of Southwest Colorado, expects a tight labor market this spring for skilled construction workers.
