Deep Roots Craftsmen, a historic preservation contractor based in Fort Collins, Colorado, is looking for a skilled laborer versed in plaster and adobe mud brick construction to join our team.

Job Description:

The preferred candidate will be a skilled laborer interested in earthen architecture construction work.  Work is with mud brick, and is on traditional and historic mud brick buildings.  Work also includes performing all types of masonry work (repairing, laying, pointing and stitching), as well as framing and finish carpentry, and all phases of plastering and rendering.  During the winter months, the position would expand to focus on other preservation trades.  Most work is on the road, and will fully train the right candidates.   Interest in long term commitment is essential.

Thanks in large part to one of the strongest grant programs in the country, preservation is thriving in Colorado. Most of our projects are partly state-funded, leading to an interesting and always varying range of non-profit clients and project sites. Our projects have ranged from historic barns, to school houses, to churches to museum spaces and additions/ renovations on private homes. Each job is unique in its elements but consistent in their adherence to the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards.

Required Skills and Qualifications:
  • First and foremost a positive attitude and interest to learn every day
  • At least 2 years of relevant experience, or comparable vocational training in the field of plastering, earthen architecture, adobe mud brick or masonry
  • Interest and ability in working well with others and tackling different tasks on each job
  • Familiarity with historic projects abiding by the Secretary of the Interior’s Standards is a plus
  • Interest in acquiring other skills within the preservation trades
  • Ability to read and understand blueprints is a plus
  • Valid driver’s license and interest/ ability to drive company carpool vehicle to jobsites
  • Ability to lift over 50 pounds and have general physical well-being to sustain 40 hour work weeks of challenging hands-on work
  • OSHA safety training and/or familiarity is a plus
  • Ability and interest to travel to remote job sites, sometimes traveling for a week at a time, staying in company-provided housing on the road
