Our History

ALTA Outdoor Living is the latest partnership between brothers Jeff and Jon Potter and their talented "family member" Dave Little. Led by Jeff Potter, the same team originally founded Black Diamond Decks in 2016 in Castle Rock. Well respected in the greater Denver region for honest and high-quality craftsmanship, the Potters established ALTA Outdoor Living in 2023 to service the region’s growing demand for up-scale, year-round outdoor living spaces.
