Meet the Blounts
Eldon and Bonnie Blount know a thing or two about building dream homes. After all, they have been living in theirs since they dreamed, designed and built it in 2002. The Blounts are long life residents of Odessa, where they have raised their children and pursued satisfying careers over the past few decades. Eldon has been in the general construction industry most of his life, while Bonnie has owned her own beauty salon and practiced real estate for many years as a Texas Licensed Realtor®. With a keen eye for design and an affinity for good taste, they started Blount Construction, Inc. in 1996 with a mission to build beautiful, custom made homes where every detail matters. Their reputation as quality builders quickly grew, being selected as “Best Home Builder of the Basin” numerous times by local newspaper readers. Throughout the years in business, one priority has never eluded the couple, to meet their clients every wish when it comes to building their home.
Today, Eldon and Bonnie focus their energy on continuing to be an integral part of Odessa’s growing economy. In 2002, Blount Construction bought and developed other homes in their neighborhood of Ponderosa Estates East, which is located north of loop 191 and Faudree Road. The subdivision features large, custom built homes with options not available in other subdivisions such as, one-acre lots, and plenty of space for a large workshop. In 2006, upon completion of their Ponderosa development, Blount and partners filed for another planned subdivision named Castle Ridge Estates Phase I, II and III. The Castle Ridge Estates are situated in the fast growing area of east Odessa, south of Highway 191. With its regal name, Castle Ridge Estates has a European theme featuring cul de sac streets named after famous castles, such as Warwick and Chambord. This restricted community features executive custom homes and is close to schools, restaurant and shopping centers. Among other area attractions, the subdivision is centrally located between Odessa Country Club and Odessa Country Club Links Course. Castle Ridge Estates Phase I was completed in 2009.
Blount Construction, Inc. is a proud affiliate of the Better Business Bureau, Permian Basin Home Builders Association and the National Home Builders Association.
Blount Construction, Inc. is currently developing Phase II of their Castle Ridge Estates development.
