Albert Zepeda has been a Montana resident since his family moved from California in 1974. What started out as a family trip across the northwest ended as a complete change of venue. The confluence of river, mountain, and stream led his family to buy a rickety house and ten acres on the Bitterroot River south of Missoula.
It was here that Al first began learning the construction skills that would later become a profession, transforming the old structure into a sturdy home that would last 30 years and counting.
Al attended Rocky Mountain College where he spent four splendid years playing defensive back for the Battlin’ Bears and earning a degree in Psychology, while diversifying his college experience with a myriad of extracurricular activities such as President of the Karate Club, Resident Assistant for Jorgensen Hall, and a Senator at Large as well as various other positions within the student government.
For the past ten years, Albert has devoted himself to the Construction Industry, keeping current with industry standards and building products to offer his clients the very best in construction materials and value. As a builder of fine residential homes, Albert believes that more money spent on a project does not always translate into a better product, and his clients can be assured that decisions always involve a balance between cost, benefit, durability, aesthetics, and function.
Currently, Al and Hugo (the handsome German Shepherd featured on the Zepeda Homes logo and website) live in Missoula and have several projects in Missoula and Ravalli County. While Hugo doesn’t make many decisions, he does seem to provide a mental clarity for his owner. Don’t be surprised if you see him in the back of Al’s truck and you’re sure to make a friend by giving him a scratch behind the ears.
If you are considering the rewarding task of building a new home, Al is happy to meet with you to discuss your plans, conceptually or already at the blueprint stage. Al is also a licensed Realtor with the State of Montana, but that is another story…
