About Us

Hands On Leadership


Owner David J. Engelman is a premier builder of high-end, environmentally responsible homes throughout the SouthWest.  Dave is an Albuquerque, NM based full-service builder who prides himself on being “hands-on” and prefers to manage your project in person on the job site overseeing every detail, than from an office.    

Since 1993 David and his wife, Sharon, have built over 120 custom homes. Years of hard work and commitment to excellence have paid off in numerous awards.

Attention to Detail


 David has built homes and completed complex remodels in several styles – Contemporary, Desert Modern, Mediterranean, Post and Beam, Pueblo, and also Lake Homes in both New Mexico & Texas – all with a common theme: attention to the details. Finely finished woodwork, cleanly executed paint edges and inspection of all materials and craftsmanship. David’s team of subcontractors are held to these same high standards and their pride in workmanship is evident in the final product! 

Green Building Expertise


David has been committed to building green, energy efficient homes throughout New Mexico and Texas for many years.   David is also proud to have won the Gold Award for Universal Design for a home he built in San Pedro Overlook in the East Mountains. Coincidentally, since then, he has also installed a photovoltaic solar system in this home to power all of its electrical needs. 

David is devoted to Responsible Building and Promoting Sustainability
