Who are the Doziers?

Ben Dozier

Ben Dozier, best known as the founder of his design consultancy, Root Design Company, is also co-founder and chairman of 3AG Investments. His social networking skills make it that much easier to communicate with people, not only on a professional level, but also on a personal level, which is essential in the business world.

Ben works with his wife and business partner, Cristi, to build, design and renovate different and unique homes. After launching the Root company in 2004, the couple expanded their job description to include all aspects of home design, as well as boutique commercial projects, associated with the development of destination properties and the design of the brand.

Cristi Dozier

Cristi Dozier will work with her husband, Ben, in their new and very own series.

While two were born and raised in Austin, Texas, they made the big move to Colorado, which is now their current home. In addition to helping Root Design, the mother of four also manages and operates their espresso and cocktail bar in Pagosa Springs, called The Root House Coffee + Shop. The place is both a bakery and a lifestyle store.

When asked what she thought of the store opening, she said: “In Cristi’s opinion, she says, ‘We opened this cafe as an extension of our design business to investing in the local community and better serving our customers, with a great cup of coffee, of course, and a selection of retail products.” That’s the right way to do business!

Fun fact, the couple’s design business started out as a landscape business! Cristi says: “I remember when we thought of the name Root Design. We had this name before we started the business. And we liked the word “root” because it meant the source from which things grow. Yes, it started out as a landscaper, but we felt like she lent herself to what we wanted her to become.” It seems the name was the right choice since it fits!

While the couple started and launched Root Design Company in their hometown of Texas, they moved base camp to a mountain town in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. This is where the family of 6 currently reside, housed in a vintage Victorian house by the river, with their design studio headquartered in a barn on their property.

When it comes to their four children, named Adelyn, Gunnison, Creede, and South, it sure seems like a lot of thought has gone into their names. “Cristi named Adelyn, which is a beautiful name, and I named a few of our kids after towns in Colorado that I had lived in or that had significant value to us.”

Catch the premiere of “Building Roots” on April 10, 2022 at 9 p.m. ET, only on HGTV.
