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!

Small details make a big difference! There is a reason why people use that expression. It applies to several aspects in life, and it definitely applies to your new home!
Of course, the design of your new home, the floor plan, the craftsmanship, the quality are all very important when your new home is built. And at Pointe Homes, we definitely have you covered on all that. We work diligently to provide you with excellent customer service and professionalism in our work.
But don't forget about those details. They make all the difference when your new home is complete. When you are selecting light fixtures, for example, you can choose something that reflects your style. Plus, depending on the kind of light you want in your home, you can even choose a dimmer for your fixtures to change the lighting whenever you please.
And the details don't stop at light fixtures. In your new kitchen alone, you can choose your style of faucet and backsplash. The style and color of your backsplash can be subtle or it can stand out and be the focal point of the kitchen.
There are so many details that go into making your new house a home. At Pointe Homes, all your home features can be modified depending on your needs, style, and budget. We can even help you build your dream home from scratch. Give us a call today and find out how we can start building for you!
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!

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.

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.

We're lucky we haven't seen any bad winter storms. But we do hear a cold front is coming in! We know heating new homes can get expensive. To help cut heating costs, there are some things you can do around your house to help! Huffington Post gives their tips.
By closing off unused rooms, you can help prevent cold air from moving around the house and help contain the heat you've generated.
Believe it or not, your ceiling fan can also help! "By setting them clockwise in the winter at a lower speed, you can drive warm air down towards you and your guests."
Add some layers to your floor. "Floors account for as much as 10 percent of heat loss if they're not insulated, according to the National Energy Foundation, and rugs can be that missing insulation. They'll keep cool air from seeping up into the room..."
Grab some foil from your kitchen and put it behind the radiators in your home. It will reflect heat back into the home and not let it escape through the walls.
Move that furniture around your new home and keep it away from windows. "Sitting by the window can cause radiant heat loss from your body to the glass make you feel cold."
And of course, blankets, sweaters, and hot water bottles still do the trick!
Buying a new home is a big investment, and any penny you can save is important! By following simple tips like these, you can help keep your heating bills low in your new home this cold season.

We know buying a new home is a huge investment, so it is important to take good care of your home details and features. When buying or building your new home, granite is a great choice for countertops because it is resistant to scratches, water, heat, and bacteria. And although it is very durable, it's a good idea to take the proper steps to maintain it.
Help your granite countertop stay resistant from stains by always using coasters, trivets, and keeping bottles of cooking oils off the counter. Sealing a granite countertop is a good option because it keeps the surface more resistant to stains.
If a spill occurs on the countertop, be sure to blot the stain with a paper towel as opposed to wiping it to avoid spreading the spill. Immediately clean the area with water and mild dishwashing soap. Avoid cleaners that contain acids such as lemon or vinegar, or ammonia or bleach. You can even find cleaners that are made especially for granite countertops.
Granite is just one of the many features Pointe Homes offers for our new homes. Find out about our many other home features! Plus, our features list can be modified to suit your needs and budget. Give us a call today at 915-790-1515 to find out what we offer in our new homes!
Christmas is coming up! If you are celebrating Christmas in your new home this year and you want to get a real tree, there are some tips you can follow to keep your tree fresh and last longer in a safe way.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT TREE
When you are out shopping for a tree, be sure to look for one that is cut straight across the base. The straighter the cut is, the better the tree will absorb water. Also, be sure to look for a tree that is very green with few brown needles.
HYDRATE YOUR TREE WELL
Be sure you have a big enough water stand that will cover your tree trunk and can hold at least a gallon of water. Check the water level everyday and make sure it is always covering the trunk. A humidifier kept nearby can keep the tree from drying out.
KEEP IT SAFE
To avoid any fires, keep the tree away from the fireplace where sparks may fly out and hit the tree. Also, keep it away from stoves or even a window where it will get direct sunlight.
We hope your tree looks absolutely beautiful in your new home. And we also want it to last you throughout the holiday season and keep you and your loved ones safe. Take care of your family, your tree, and your new home this holiday season!
Our new homes are designed with innovation and equipped with the most current features so we can build you a home that will last you many, many years. Our floor plans are refined with a close attention to detail.
With every home, we work with the best craftsmanship and professionalism. Every part of your new home is important, whether we are working on the ceiling of your living room or the faucet in your kitchen. The tile we place in your bathroom is just as important as the walls of your entire home.
We will work diligently and will be there with your every step of the way, from the time you give us a call or walk into our doors to the time you close on your new home. We are one of the best home builders in El Paso, TX, and we will always strive to stay the best.

As time passes, your new home may need small repairs. If you need to fix something in your home, you can call someone to help you with the repairs. However, if it is something easy, you can take care of it yourself. It is good to always bee prepared with the right tools. House Beautiful lists the top tools you should always hold in your new home.
Be sure to always have an assortment of sizes and types like Phillips, slotted, and square-drive.
House Beautiful recommends a 16 or 25 foot Stanley Powerlock, which is big enough for projects around the house but not too bulky to carry around.
HEX KEYS AND TORX SECURITY BITS
It's best to get a multi-bit driver with hex key bits. "The bits have hex shanks so you can turn them by hand or chuck them into an impact driver or drill."
There are two styles to choose from: traditional push-out and a foldout pocket-knife style. Always use caution when handling knives.
Clamps come in several sizes and always come in handy!
You always want to protect yourself when you're doing home repairs. Gloves can prevent burns, splinters, and cuts.
Even doing something as simple as hanging a frame on a wall will be much easier with a level. The best ones to get project a 360-degree beam vertical out the front and out the side.
These are just a few of the tools you should have in your new home to take care of simple jobs and repairs. To see the full list from House Beautiful, click here.
