Best Custom Homes (BCH) is a new construction, remodel and renovation company based in Evergreen, Colorado. BCH is looking for a Controller to join our family where home construction is not just a job, it is a passion and a calling for the people who work with us.

We are a small-but-growing team, and this is a new position. We do bookkeeping in house and outsource much of the accounting to a firm, but we have outgrown the current structure and are looking to hire an accounting professional to build and run an in-house accounting function. This position reports to the owner.

The Controller will grow alongside BCH. We recently moved into a new building and will be expanding services to include an in-house design center and rentable shared work spaces.

This is an opportunity for someone who enjoys doing the day to day work as well as business development and advising on the bigger picture.
