The idea

Among the first in Northern Colorado to be crafted with the local environment and working community in mind, Wildfire layers conscious design, customizable features and finishes, and a vision for local connection to create an accessible living option unlike anything the area has seen before. Our community mindset started at inception with a team of Northern Colorado’s top architects, contractors and designers bringing the project together.

From permits to town approvals, the construction of Wildfire Homes is a process from ideation to finalization. Attention to approaching the project by the book is just as important as the attention given to the construction itself. Follow the progress of the homes from water and electrical set up to laying the foundations and framing. Watch Wildfire come to life and follow project updates in real-time.

One of the most fulfilling parts of the Wildfire story involves Crossroads Ministries, Inc.  Crossroads has served the Estes Valley since 1982 by providing food, assistance with rent, utilities, medical and other expenses for residents in need. The Crossroads property is currently located at the corner of Dry Gulch and Wildfire Rds. 

Because of the proximity to the Wildfire Development an agreement was reached between Wildfire Homes, LLC and Crossroads Ministries to trade properties.  Crossroad will gain a newly renovated building (the old Westover Construction building) that will allow for expansion of services, while continuing to stay in the same neighborhood. 

Wildfire will eventually raze the current Crossroads building to add the Mt. Olympus Workforce Condo building located on the development plan. This agreement paved the way for a big win-win for the community:  More workforce housing and a facility enabling Crossroads to continue and expand their mission for years to come. Learn more about Crossroads here.


The Wildfire Team is comprised of local professionals that are invested in the well-being of the Estes Valley. Each member has lived and worked in Estes Park for decades. We understand the housing challenges residents face and how that effects the healthy functioning of our community. Beyond each member’s professional commitment, we all have a commitment to enriching the area and the people who call it home.

Valerie Dascol

Valerie has always been motivated by art. As a little girl, she would draw and paint. People knew it was her passion and her special skill set. One day she was asked to faux paint someone’s home, and now, as they say, the rest is history. From one thing to another, she built up momentum until a focus on walls grew into a full-service home design business.

​Now, every day, she is privileged to be able to fulfill her childhood dream. Through home design, she is able to combine her two passions for creativity and serving people. She loves to make people happy and help bring their dreams to life, just like hers. And it is a pleasure when, through that process, clients have become friends.

Mark & Melissa Westover

Mark and Melissa have lived and worked in the Estes Valley for 33 years. After they moved to Estes Park in 1988 they moved 6 times in 3 years! They raised all four of their children here and now their 5 grandchildren live here too. As a result they understand the struggles young families face when trying to find housing.
The Westovers have owned and operated Westover Construction, Inc for 30 years. Their focus has been in building high quality custom homes. They hope to bring that same mindset to the Wildfire Project. They desire that those who reside in the Wildfire neighborhood feel a sense of pride in their home whether they are living in a workforce condo, a townhome or a single family home.

When the Westovers are not working, together they enjoy spending time with their family, camping and fishing. Separately, Melissa enjoys singing, hiking, baking and non-profit work. Mark enjoys flying, woodworking and is learning the mandolin.
