The Love Builds, Inc., Blog
Hello to my wonderful customers!
I have been building since I was 4, but I've never talked about the reason I build. Wow do I ever have a lot to say about this! I will be adding my words here in the next couple of days, and I'm excited; stand by!
For years now I have been keeping a sharp eye for hearts in the environment; I've found ones in the natural world, in industry, on the job site. These now grace my business cards and I'm sharing them here. They are fun! And they bring a spot of joy amidst the sometimes tedious and difficult world of making a living!

This next image I found in an intersection in Los Alamos on the way to the work site. Grit is everywhere, as is love!
Hello potential client/visitor-to-our site!
Amongst other activities we make maple burl tables! These gems are fashioned from Western Big Leaf Maple Burl. They are a fusion of effort between my team and that of the fine steel work of "Dulfer Metal Llc". My friend and colleague Steve Dulfer, master blacksmith, is shown here in the photos.
As a part of our recent remodel for this customer we made a fancy carport! The goal here was to keep the inherited vintage Corvettes out of the weather. Our customers found a clean and modern design concept off the web. To achieve the desired look powder coating the parts was necessary. We used Absolute Powdercoating of Albuquerque. It was necessary to prefit all parts, dissasemble, take everything to Albuquerque, wait two weeks, return with the parts and reassemble. We used egyptian methods to fabricate this unit. Hands rather than tools took the lovely parts into place!
Hello Valued Customer!
This Post is about lasting exterior joinery; here in New Mexico we love the rustic look, but we also love things looking good and holding together over time! I show this example of our handiwork as we did a number of things that are special, which many builders don't take the time to do, to keep our work looking good. This lead photo is of Alan's Eschenbacher's Entry as it looks today. In the body of this post below, with the rope, I show this same detail as it looked when completed in the summer of 2011!
