About Us

Mission Statement

At Truth, we strive to provide a unique customer experience rooted in an unwavering commitment to transparency, creativity, and attention to detail; we focus on building lasting relationships with everyone that we work with, whether a client or trade partner, and we do our part to minimize our ecological footprint, and promote justice and equity in our community.


How do we make our mission statement actionable?

  • We donate 10% of our profits annually to charities addressing housing, crisis and climate change including The Denver Basic Income Project (listen to the story on CPR News!), Colorado Village Collaborative, and Together Rising. We encourage our clients to donate more if they can!
  • We deconstruct rather than demolish, use zero VOC paints, LED lights, and donate any re-usable items that we can. We encourage our clients to use sustainable materials and to go solar!
  • We have quarterly volunteer work days
  • We are committed to creating an all electric vehicle fleet (we currently have reservations for the Tesla Cybertruck, and the Ford F150 Lighting)
  • We provide living wages to our employees, as well as health insurance, generous time off, and profit sharing

Truth Design Build is focused on creating a unique and positive experience for home owners. Built with the processes and procedures that mirror large companies, but with the service and individualized care of a smaller company, Truth Design Build's owners have built everything from bathroom remodels to duplexes, restaurants, and custom homes, and can take on just about any job with a focus on clarity, precision, openness, and creativity. Taking a non-traditional route to Design-Build, we can work with any designer or architect. We will generate preliminary estimates before the design begins, and attend all design meetings to guide the project with our experience and expertise to avoid the typical pitfalls that can occur between design implementation, construction feasibility, and cost.

Client Testimonials

From start to finish we had an great experience with Truth Design Build, LLC. Our project was a full remodel of a late 70's home which needed a full remodel. The project came in on budget and two weeks early. Job was handled in a very professional manner with all change orders detailed and authorized. Sub contractors used were great as well - on time, within budget and managed professionally by Josh & Justine. Absolutely, would recommend Truth Design Build, LLC to friends and family for any project.Read More

Truth Design Build did an incredible job on our recent remodel. This is now the second large project that Josh and Justin have completed for us and we could not be happier with the results. This project included updating all flooring, a bathroom renovation, and a two story fire place design and build. Knowing that the schedule was incredibly tight, they worked diligently to get all the work completed before our move date. Their attention to detail is unmatched and their model is unique in that they provide full transparency on cost from beginning to end.Read More

After shopping around with different builders to construct our new home, we were clear on our top pick after meeting with Justin & Josh. We appreciated their genuine interest in the project and our needs and desires as well as their honest assessment of what fit into our budget, what would not and creative solutions to achieve an outcome to land somewhere in between when it mattered most. Justin and Josh are honest and transparent about the process, managed the various subs well, which was no easy task in the 2018 building boom, and communicated with us in an efficient and timely manner. My husband and I both agreed that working with Josh & Justin was a lot of fun and while we missed them when the job was done we LOVED the house.Read More

We've known both Josh and Justin for some time now, and think highly of them personally, as professionals, and as human beings. They completed a significant remodel for our current home, and the work was completed without exception. Josh is a top notch project manager, who is detail oriented, attentive, approachable and pleasant. Inevitably, in all construction projects challenges arise, ours was no different. I believe it is these moments that true character comes too light, and Josh was an exceptionally professional manager. We have literally not one complaint, or negative spot of feedback to offer. Justin is dedicated, and very skilled craftsmen who among many traits, can react creatively with his skillset. Many examples of this excellence are present in our home, and it would not have turned out the same, without his experience. I believe he would say this work is his passion, and it shows at every step. We cannot compliment their commitment and dedication to the craft enough, and strongly urge you to consider TDB for your project. If this sounds like a loaded review, or one that we've received compensation for, I can assure you in offering our verbal and written confirmation, that we find their work and qualities as faultless as can be. Given the right circumstances, and as further testament to our faith in these two gentlemen, we would consider allowing their future clients to review our project in person.Read More

Josh and Justin provide a service that I've found to be lacking in the residential construction business and that is a high level of customer service while offering a real attention to detail in all of their projects. They provide honest timelines and budgets and do a great job of communication throughout the project; from initial meeting to close-out. I've worked with them personally and professionally and would do so again without question.Read More
