Week slow down, got a lot to do, could use more time!! Can’t we all use a bit more time? But it is one thing that we all have equally! Not money, love,or patience, only time!! Showcase of Homes 2010 is upon us. It is an exciting time for all of us at Soledad Canyon Earth Builders. We are given the privilege of showing you our work. Our clients are willing to open their new home to the public. We are very grateful for that opportunity. We love showing our work! On that note, we cordially invite everyone to visit us at 4011 Quail Brush Court. Located east of town in Desert Mirage. From the corner of University and Telshor drive east on Dripping Springs Road for 4.8 miles, turn right on Desert Mirage Drive, go 1/2 mile, turn right on Desert Mirage Ct.
This 2,727 sq. ft. rammed earth home for the Barker’s is our typical “Uniquely New Mexico” style home. We are calling it “Casa de Tierra 2010”. Solar Power of Las Cruces has installed Photovoltaic Solar Panels on the Showcase Home! The Barker’s will producing electricity for their home for years to come and El Paso Electric will be paying them for the electricity produced!!! It has terrific energy, great views, solid comfort and fine art work. Again this year we are pleased to be able to Showcase several local artists. With the help of Catherine Brenner of the Unsettled Gallery and David Shaw, photographer extraordinaire, we will be displaying beautiful works of art.
As we finish up Showcase we are also completing the Rincon de Amigos home. We will photograph and post on our website the completed home. The Rincon de Amigos home will welcome it’s new owners sometime the middle of May. We will be as excited for them as they are in accepting their new home!
We are ready to start a new phase of building with new projects. The Hays home in the Pueblos is ready to start the rammed earth walls. Jean has been working with us for three years-maybe four. Her slab is poured, we will begin ramming walls next week!
We are also in the final stages of the plans for the Picacho Mountain project! Another extraordinary project for some extraordinary clients on an extraordinary piece of property!!
For now, I will sign off. Got a house to go finish! There are many events and activities to take part in around Las Cruces over the next two weeks. Everything from the First Annual Onion Fiesta in Mesilla, to La Vina Wine Festival, the Cinco de Mayo celebration and of course the 2010 Showcase of Homes.
