KAYENTA PEOPLE ARE A LITTLE UNIQUE
They like cactus and red rocks, the sound of a coyote howl at night and don’t mind a little sand in their shoes. They embrace the natural spirit that is Kayenta, choosing a place to live where star bright nights (not city lights) can still quiet their soul. They cherish vertical red cliffs over horizons obstructed by vertical architecture and space to walk where nature is still free to roam. Discover Kayenta, enjoy the Art Village, our desert climate, walk the lots, savor a sunset and when you can’t imagine living anywhere else – then you are a Kayenta person too!

YOUR KAYENTA BUILDER LIVES AND BUILDS EXCLUSIVELY IN KAYENTA
Brent Smith and his wife Cindy discovered Kayenta in the late 1980’s and never gave up hope of having a home here. In 2006 the dream came true and they sold their Park City home of 30 years and moved south to become “Kayenta People.” Brent was a general contractor in the Park City and Salt Lake City areas for 37 years. He is very passionate about the homes he is building and works with the homeowner throughout the entire building process. The added benefit of being a local resident is that the “client” becomes the “friend.”
Our home is a small 1900 square foot modern design that lives large and is comfortable, efficient and contemporary. Brent not only guides the building process but is an excellent problem solver and brings thoughtful design elements to the architecture. For example he designed our fireplace and gate among other features. He employs excellent sub contractors who join him in following the project to its completion and beyond. We have a home we enjoy, is energy efficient and one that fits the Kayenta concept. Take a look inside and out. Oh and his wife is indispensable!
Someone considering Brent & Cindy as a potential builder once asked if I would recommend them, my response after careful thought was “we consider Brent and Cindy our friends”. The gentlemen looked at me quizzically and said he wouldn’t pick a builder based on looking for friendship? I went on to explain, “neither did we, the fact is we became friends as a result of the very pleasant process of building our dream home. That in and of itself is a ringing endorsement! We were a little concerned the first time we heard Brent say the house would talk to us. We came to understand and appreciate this concept as our home developed. Brent is not the kind of builder that mindlessly follows the architects plans. He uses them as a blueprint that is meant to be enhanced as the project develops. Brent, with our input built a home that exceeded our expectations”. Brent and Cindy are a wonderful team and yes, we recommend them and appreciate their friendship!
We love, love, love our house, and it would have turned out differently without GBSC. Brent always says each house is like a child that you watch grow up, and it is his artist’s eye that helps it evolve into that special and unique place. Cindy really added a delightful dimension. She was so fun and easy to work with on the day to day parts of the process that would easily have been mundane without her. They were both dedicated to making sure we got a well-built house that continues to delight us.
The best decision in our home building process was deciding to work with Brent and Cindy Smith. Brent not only thoroughly understands the desert building process but he built our home with an artistic eye. He is a problem solver and not afraid to voice his experience based opinions – listen as he has great ideas. You will get a complete quality built home with Brent– including exterior spaces that are welcoming, private and finished. Cindy is wonderful, the behind the scenes maestro managing the numbers… and Brent. They are great people and we are very lucky to call them friends. Would we build with them again? In a heart beat!
