“Where’d you get the name ‘Alpentile’?

…”it’s an unusual name for a company in the desert.”  Well, long before we knew we’d be making our livelihood installing glass mosaics, Luke and I both lived in Seattle and our lives revolved around snowboarding.  Our favorite spot was a little resort called ‘Alpental’ –  located on Denny Mountain at Snoqualmie Pass.

When it came time to pick a name for our business, we spent weeks trying to think of something meaningful, or at least cool.  We asked family and friends for help, but nothing stuck.  Then, on a sunny San Diego day at the beach with margaritas in hand (the best way to inspire creativity,) we were reminiscing about the great Northwest, how much we missed those mountains, and the good times we had at Alpental.  That’s when it hit us…something meaningful and cool….and ‘Alpentile‘ came to be.


Now, like so many others, we have relocated to Arizona because of the beautiful winters and a relaxed way of life the desert provides.  But we still hold on to our history through our name, which always takes us back in time…



In today’s construction field, we know it’s a treat to find individuals who are deeply engaged in their craft…We merge craftsmanship with design, giving our clients a totally unique construction experience that surpasses all  expectations.
