Bless Construction and Lido Gates

We are more than just gates. If you live by the ocean and you love wood, Bless Construction’s Lido Gates and exterior woodwork are built to the highest quality that with the right paint/finish can withstand the punishment of coastal humidity for years and years.

We are a Southern California Family Tradition

Lido Gates Custom wood work

Mike Bless, VP of Bless Construction Inc., was born into the building trade and with a love of the ocean.

Bless Brothers Construction was a staple in the Southern California building industry beginning in the 1950s.

When Mike joined the business, he realized that the “Southern California lifestyle home” required beautiful craftsmanship to reflect the area’s sense of style and elegance. But these homes also needed unique woods that could withstand years of coastal fog, sun, and salty air.

Thirty years later, Bless Construction has evolved from the family business and now stands as one of Orange County’s preeminent custom wood-crafting shops.

Mike is also a woodwork artist. His artwork ( was featured at Gary’s Island Store of Fashion Island, Newport Beach, California.
