Our Story


I’m sure you’ve heard this story before…it starts with a dream…and sometimes opportunities can jump right into your lap. That’s the Crestone story. Growing up in Aberdeen, SD, Eric Skott always loved building things. He went to college at South Dakota Tech earning a degree as engineer, but missed swinging the hammer. So he became a carpenter and worked on a crew. Life was good. One day he thought, maybe he should have his own crew and company, so that’s what he did. After working between Colorado and the Twin Cities, the Skott’s landed in Watertown, SD in 2006 and gave birth to Crestone Builders. It’s grown to be a very successful and diverse company. The mission and vision has always been simple…we want to build community with each and every project.
