Join us for our last weekend of the Parade of Homes! Come by Enchanted Hills on Transmountain and I-10 and take a walk through a Pointe Home. Check out all the features we can offer you and let us start building for you! We'll be here all weekend!
Summer is almost here! But since we have seen warm weather for a while now, if you have a patio, I'm sure you have already spend many days and nights relaxing there.
We have plenty of move-in ready homes that have patios waiting for you! But if you have some great ideas of a patio unique to you, Pointe Homes can build you a custom home from scratch. There are so many ways you can create the perfect patio space perfect for you and your family.
Though we see a lot of patios on concrete, it is not the only option. Adding beautiful tile to your outdoor space can continue the flow from your home interior and add some color. You can even enclose it with a metal grate on top to give you some privacy but still give you some sunlight or moonlight on those amazing summer nights.
And speaking of nights, we can build you a fireplace to add heat and ambience on chilly nights. And since this is El Paso, you'll find yourself enjoying your patio all year round!
There are so many ways to customize your home and patio. Come share your ideas with us and we can build your new custom home!
Have you checked out the June Men's Issue of The City Magazine? Our Builder/Owner, Carlos, is featured and discusses revitalizing El Paso by building spaces that "innovate and inspire" the city.
Villalobos founded Pointe Homes with his brother in 2006 and began his first large-scale project with building Las Lunas subdivision. There were many challenges, but Villalobos continued to push forward. Before starting Pointe Homes, he had no prior experience in home construction, but learned quickly from those around him to build Pointe Homes into what it is today.
Today, Pointe Homes is a successful company with homes starting in the $130K's and up "in over 200 lots across 12 plus highly-desirable communities." Plus, Villalobos is the current President of the El Paso Association of Builders. Pointe Homes will be featured in this year's Parade of Homes and is currently constructing The Uptown, a 14-unit upscale apartment complex, along with the Franklin Avenue Apartments, located behind Southwest University Park.
Villalobos is taking a big role in helping El Paso move forward and will keeping building for you!
It's patio weather! Time to sit outside and relax with these warm evenings. And you don't need a large space to enjoy your patio. BHG gives their tips on how to make a small patio space appear bigger!
Outdoor drapes helps draw your attention up and away from the floor space. Add some style with a bamboo pole as a curtain rod.
Another way to draw attention up is with string lights. They will help illuminate the area and add some charm. You can even suit it to your style with bulbs, lanterns, or mason jars.
No matter the space, a mirror can always make any small space appear more open. Add some contrast with a gold or more ornate mirror above a rustic plant stand.
Furniture that is too big will clutter the area. Instead, choose smaller furniture that does not obstruct the flow.
If you have a patio or any outdoor space, utilize it and enjoy these summer days. And hey, it's El Paso, you can use it all year round!

When you are buying your new home or building a custom home from scratch, there are so many details and features to consider: material for countertops, faucets, window treatments, doors, etc. But don't forget about your ceiling!
Designing your ceiling to your taste and style can really add movement and variation to your new home. Wooden beams, like the ones shown above, can add a sense of warmth and coziness to any room. Arches can add movement and allow your new home to flow.
If you have a more traditional style, coffered ceilings look beautiful, especially in kitchens. If your style is more modern, a recessed ceiling with a contrasting color painted in the step can add a little bit of drama and allow any small space to appear larger.
If you have any walls painted bright colors, a contrasting white trim can really highlight the room's features. For a more airy feel in your new home, windows or bookcase that reach the ceiling can enhance the light of the room.
No matter your style or budget, there are so many ways to beautifully accent your new home. If you are ready to move into a new home, we can find you the perfect one. If you want to design your new home from scratch, we can help you throughout the entire process. Give us a call today and find out how we can start building for you!
If your style is more traditional, and you love the look of a cottage-style kitchen in your new home, Better Homes and Gardens, gives their tips!
Open shelving in your kitchen, especially with brackets to hold the shelves, is a sure way to give that cottage-style look. If you have existing cabinets in place, no need to install new ones. Simply remove the doors.
If privacy is not a major concern in your kitchen, paned glass windows and doors will give the kitchen a lot of natural light. You can even add curtains to the inside of the doors if you do want a little bit of privacy. Or you can also add plantation shutters to some windows
Patina on furniture gives off a well-worn look, and beaded boards along walls and islands also work well. Use cooler tones or paint the beaded boards white. However, don't be afraid to add a bright color to make things pop!
All of this looks great on top of wood flooring. Be sure to get a natural tone that you think works best, whether it is dark or light.
There are several ways to make your kitchen stand out in a more traditional home. To read the rest of BHG's tips, click here.

This week, we were featured in the El Paso Times! We have always built new and custom homes for El Paso. But now, we are doing more! We have two small apartment projects that are being built and plans for a third one.
All are located in Central/Downtown El Paso, which makes it easy for those who work Downtown, at the hospitals, and UTEP. If someone is moving to El Paso, there are now more living options available. One of the projects, the Franklin Avenue Apartments, is a 14-unit, that sits just down from the ballpark. If you feel like seeing a game or want to head Downtown for dinner, you are just steps away.
We are very excited that we can build for you in so many different ways, whether you need a 4-bedroom home for your family, or you live alone and love the Downtown lifestyle. We hope to keep building for you, El Paso!

Easter is this weekend! If you plan to have your family over for an Easter dinner in your new home, having the right dining room area is very helpful.
If your family has a lot of kids or if you are just a more casual family, a kitchen that overlooks the living room and dining room in an open area, is very beneficial. It allows you to watch the kids and talk with family while you are preparing your meal.
If you prefer a more formal dining area, a separate dining room works well. You can still have a small breakfast table in the kitchen and have a larger dining room table in a separate area. If you want to add a little more elegance, play around with your features and decor. A hanging chandelier over the dining room table can make your dinners a little more special!
Different floor plans in new homes are suited for different people. There are many types of families. And depending on your needs and budget, we can find the right new home for you. We have several new floor plans for homes that are ready to move into. Our floor plans can even be modified. Or if you are looking for a new custom home, we can sit down with you and help you plan and then build your dream home!

The days are longer, and that bright beautiful El Paso sun is shining. This weather definitely makes you want to start gardening, or garden more if you've already started! Gardening can definitely be fun, but we know that El Paso gets so hot come July or August, that taking care of your lawn becomes more difficult and time-consuming.
A great (and also beautiful!) solution for our climate is a desert landscape for your yard. A desert landscape is low maintenance, so taking care of it is an easy job. Plus, if you've just moved into your new home, you'll probably want to spend more time taking care and decorating the interior or just spending time inside with your family.
Since you will be using less water, it is great for the environment. Water is a precious natural resource, and by using less water for our lawns, we are helping this earth a step at a time.
Plus, with the gorgeous desert all around us, a landscape like this matches perfectly. There are several desert plants to use on your lawn. You can even get creative with large rock or flat stone. In the end, you'll have something more interesting to look at than a regular yard with grass!

It's Friday! We've had a busy week. It's time for a relaxing weekend!
Taking a bath is a great way to relax. It's important that the atmosphere in your bathroom is soothing. Choosing the right tile to surround your tub in your new home is a great start. Tile that gives a natural look in earth tone colors accented with glass tile helps create the right environment.
Have you thought about giving your bathtub and shower their own spaces? Leave the shower for your busy work week, but enjoy the tub during your own personal time. This can be designed in several ways. At Pointe Homes, we can custom build your new home. We can show you some ideas to help design and build your bathroom and the rest of your new home to your need and budget. Or if you already have some amazing ideas, share them with us! Our in-house design team can sit down with you and together, we can build your dream home.
When it comes to choosing the right window treatment for your kitchen, there are several options available. What is the size and shape of your window? What is your budget? HGTV gives their tips on choosing the right window treatment.
If you want to liven things up in your kitchen, "consider adding pattern and color, perhaps a fabulous print." Or if you desire a more clean look, a "neutral, grounding fabric or material" is the way to go. To make a small kitchen look larger, go for light, cool colors, and to help balance a large kitchen, choose dark, warm colors.
Do you want more privacy in your kitchen? Window treatments with screening materials "let you see out but allow some daylight to pass while blocking views from the outside."
If there a beautiful window in your kitchen that you want to feature? Try a fabric valance to accent the window. Playing around with the balance can also adda unique touch,
Choosing the right window treatment is a small touch that can greatly express your personal style. To read the full HGTV article, click here.

We are very fortunate that our snow in El Paso only lasted a couple of days and was not too dangerous. However, if you know a bad storm is approaching, there are a few things you can do around your home to prepare for a power outage. House Beautiful gives their tips:
Prepare Your Emergency Kit
No matter where you live, it's good to have an emergency kit prepared in your home. It should have several items, including "a hand-crank or battery-powered radio, flashlights, a first aid kit (with gauze, tape, bandages, antibiotic ointment, aspirin, a blanket, non-latex gloves, scissors, hydrocortisone, thermometer, tweezers, and an instant cold compress), extra batteries, a whistle, hand sanitizer, garbage bags, and a tool kit.
Fill Up Your Car
It's safer to NOT drive during a storm, but in case you do, make sure to fill your car prior to the storm. And, always carry an emergency kit for your vehicle.
Stock Up on Food and Water
House Beautiful suggests "stocking up with enough water for three days — one gallon of water per person per day. You'll also need food for at least three days and a can opener. "
Fill Your Tub
In case you water gets shut off, you can skip the shower, but use water from the tub to keep filling the toilet.
Keep the Refrigerator and Freezer Closed
To keep your food lasting longer, keep the doors closed. Food can be safe up to four hours without the electricity. However, after the storm, be sure to toss "any perishable foods (like meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy and leftovers) that have been above 40 degrees for over two hours."

Your new home should always accommodate everything that is important to you. While your living room can be a lively place for hanging with the family, the bathroom can be a relaxing environment for a long soak in the tub.
If you are building a new custom home, there are several design tips you can follow to make sure you build the perfect relaxing setting. Choosing a neutral palette for the bathroom is a big step for creating a soothing atmosphere. Consider such palettes when choosing your paint color and bathroom tile.
Natural materials, such as stone tile, pebbled walls and floors, and wooden vanities give the bathroom a very organic and spa-like touch to your bathroom. Also, the more natural light you have in the bathroom of your new home, the better. But if there is little light in the bathroom, consider painting your walls white. Paired with light colored floors, like bamboo flooring, creates a natural light effect. And if you love taking long soaks in the evening, install a dimmer for a low-light, tranquil environment.
