Ken Ryder Construction, Inc. specializes in high end custom homes, remodels, additions and historic preservation projects. Several of Ken's historic preservation/ remodeling projects are featured in the newly published  Historic Homes of Bozeman. In 2001 The Bozeman Historic Preservation Advisory Board award Ken a certificate for excellence in the category of individual contribution.

Ken's approach to contracting incorporates close communication among all the prinipal parties involved, especially the architect, interior designer and owner.
Ken has established a strong and long term relationship with a pool of key architects and subcontractors who share Ken's commitment to a high standard of creative design and craftsmanship. As General Contractor Ken is involved in all phases of construction whether it be a new home in the mountains surrounding Bozeman, or a high end remodel/ preservation project on Bozeman's historic southside. Good communication, careful scheduling and progress reports all contribute to the success of Ken's projects."
