Get to Know Kenton Shepard

In addition to The inspection of high-end homes, log homes and homes built using alternative designs, systems and materials, I offer expert witness services.


In addition to extensive credentials which include the Certified Master Inspector designation held by only 12 other inspectors in Colorado, I've had three building-related books published. I'm also the author of InterNACHI's free, comprehensive, online Green Building course and their free  Log home Inspection course , available now on their website. Prior to founding Peak to Prairie in 2001, I had 30 years experience in residential and light commercial building.

As Director of Green Building for the world's largest professional home inspection organization I'm heavily involved in educating inspectors across North America in a variety of inspection-related subjects. I'm a writer, producer and host for NACHI TV. We produce educational videos designed to provide continuing education to those who don't want to drive long distances and pay lots of money. 

Although most of my inspection are conventional homes, I'm qualified to inspect homes bult using alterniative methods. Among these are log, straw bale and earthen homes. Knowledgeable inspectors who have not done the research or had direct building experience with these homes should be disclaiming the logs in log homes and the walls in strawbale homes. This means that they'll refuse responsibility for information about the condition of these parts of the home.

I'm comfortable doing large, multi-million dollar homes and can provide additional inspectors or specialists as the situation requires. I retain all responsibility for inspection coordination.

I am also one of a small community of inspectors offering inspections abroad. I will inspect homes anywhere in the world deemed safe for travel by the U.S. Department of State.



I'm a Certified Master Inspector, author of 3 building-related books and InterNACHI inspection course author. I have unique, top-notch credentials reflected in the quality of my inspection reports.
