Meet the Home Builder
Lee Bolin, founder and president of Saddletree Homes, has become one of the most well known and respected home builders in Colorado Springs. What Saddletree Homes is today has been 45 years in the making. It started with Lee Bolin and has grown to include a team of people, each using their gifts to build a company that will withstand the ever-changing market and continue to build quality, luxury new homes at a reasonable price for years to come.
Lee set his first nail on May 1, 1962 as an 18-year-old on a two week vacation from his job at an airplane manufacturing company in Southern California. He knew with the first swing of the hammer that he had started a new career. Within six months Lee was running his own framing crew and after nine years had enough experience to start his own construction company in May 1971. By 1986, Lee Bolin was running the largest framing contractor in Southern California with nearly 1,200 carpenters.
If He Can Build Mickey’s House…
Lee has framed countless thousands of buildings in his 45 years as a carpenter including schools, office buildings, apartments and homes. Lee’s most well known project has brought smiles to millions of children and adults around the world. In 1992 Lee’s company framed Disneyland’s (TM) Toontown with all its complex angles and special features. But out of all his projects, Lee is particularly proud of the 1000+ homes he has built from the ground up.
