Who We Are

\SM Built, LLC is a small, family-run business. We are Patrick and Danielle San Marco, proud residents of Durango, Colorado for the past 10 years. We moved to Durango from Texas when Patrick got an internship with a commercial construction company while finishing his degree in Construction Science and Management from the University of Texas in San Antonio. Although we love our Texas roots, Colorado is truly home!

Like many people who call Durango home, we are avid outdoor enthusiasts. Weekends find us trail running in the La Plata Mountains with our dog Cypress, mountain biking local trails, enjoying a drink with friends downtown, or keeping up with never-ending projects around the house.

Why We Build Houses

Patrick’s extensive experience of 10 years in commercial construction gave him the skills and confidence to manage large, complex projects involving hundreds of moving pieces, ever-changing schedules, and multiple vendors and suppliers while keeping stakeholders up to date and the budget on track. Although he loved his company and team, he has always been motivated by delivering exceptional customer service and attention to quality and details that are not always top priority to large-project stakeholders. This led to the dream of building a company that can focus on the relationship between contractor and client on a much deeper level. 

Danielle’s background is more diverse, ranging from recruitment management to patient care, with the common thread being delivering excellent customer service. Her interest in architectural design developed years ago as Patrick and Danielle remodeled their first home in Bayfield and has grown over the years into a passion for new design trends, particularly in modernist, mountain modern, and Japandi styles. She enjoys the interaction with clients and design consultation, because nothing is more satisfying than helping someone create a space that just feels right.

Our Team

Patrick and Danielle could not manage without the help of our amazing team of carpenters, superintendent, and skilled laborers. We are thankful to have dedicated professionals who we rely on day in and day out to show up on projects and get work done. Our guys have impressive backgrounds with skills such as tile installation, deck building, drywall installation and finishing, carpentry, and much more. 

In addition to our dedicated team, SM Built has strong relationships with local subcontractors who we can count on for fair pricing and quality work. While it’s always a good idea to bid to multiple subcontractors to ensure good pricing, we generally work with the same group of local companies. It’s important to us to keep our dollars local whenever possible. Using preferred subcontractors also gives our projects priority timing and generally better results, which has a direct impact on the quality of the project for our clients.
