Dear Soledad Canyon Earth Builders Fans, Friends & Family,
You are cordially invited to attend our Opening! Spring Showcase 2012 opens its doors this coming Friday at 4:00 p.m.! It has been a road well traveled. What began about 4 years ago is coming to a close. Bob & Cindy Oheim’s home at 1332 Saltillo Place is just about completed. Another week of final decisions, more problem solving, and realizations and we’ll be ready to turn over the home to the Oheims!
There are many, many people to thank. All our great subcontractors, suppliers, our crew of hard workers—Chuy, Nemesio, Raul, as well as Antonio and Junior, and of course, Max, Melissa & Samson — “Team Soledad” which, for this home, included Bob & Cindy Oheim. In order for any project to be successful it takes a team effort. Each person in the team contributes to the success, each person contributes ideas, suggestions, expertise, comfort, support and laughs. The difficulties become softer, we overcome the challenges together. I must note that even Mario had a part in building this home. Bob tells the story….the Oheims met Mario at the property, took one look at it with a very sour face. Bob was worried. “Well, this lot is challenging!” and with a smile, Mario turned around and said “But, I love a challenge!” Mario began the design process, and with Bob & Cindy’s patience Max, Melissa & I completed the design, faced the challenges and went on to complete the home.
Let me tell you some of the features of the home…….
A walk-out basement, an elevator, a media room, a pool, a greenhouse room, hardwood oak floors, tumbled brick patios, photovoltaic solar panels, a 1700+ sq. ft. garage, rosa travertine tile, adobe kiva patio fireplace, on demand water heaters, dual flush commodes, and of course 18″ rammed earth walls. Come by and tell us what your favorite feature of the home is. As well, Vote for us! There is a Scavenger Hunt being sponsored by Radio of Las Cruces and the Showcase. On page 9 of the Showcase Magazine you will find the details along with the ballot for your favorite home. We are in the $800,000- $1.5 million range. Vote for House #4 !!!
