Everyone fortunate enough to grow up in New Orleans understands that childhood here is a little different than anywhere else. Jazz Fest is an acceptable reason for skipping school. Snowball fights happen in the summer and leave your clothes stained with syrup. I could make both a strong pot of coffee and a strong mimosa […]

If the well-worn walls of artist George Dureau’s three-story French Quarter home could talk, they would tell a story that spans well over a century. But it is the current resident who is apt to generate the most interest. Someone with a lesser vision might have quickly painted the unfinished, cracked gray walls, but no […]

Perhaps more than residents of most other cities, New Orleanians like to flaunt their hometown. Pride of place is one of the reasons they like wearing Jazz Fest T-shirts and fleur-de-lis jewelry, particularly when they travel. It’s why they enjoy showing off shotgun houses and centuries-old buildings to guests from out of town. And it’s […]
A generation ago, when my in-laws were searching for antiques for their Uptown home, they began their antiquing adventure the New Orleans way: lunch at Galatoire’s followed by a shop-to-shop trek along Royal Street. Each visit included long conversations with the merchants, a walk-through of the stores and note-taking. A piece of jewelry or furniture […]
It’s officially spring — the perfect time of year to enjoy alfresco dining.

What items do you sell, and what services do you provide? We build homes for individuals that have been designed for them, as opposed to speculative housing. We specialize in building a relationship with the homeowner. It’s very personalized; it’s their design.
What sort of clientele do you reach? A typical client is somebody who has a vision or a dream of what they want their house to look like. We develop that on paper through architects. It’s someone who wants a custom home built for his or her specific needs.
What does the process entail? Once the projects are drawn and details are established, we start construction. We work with the customer almost from the very beginning to the very end, though sometimes they come to us with their plans. We do it all, from surveying to working with subcontractors.
What types of projects do you take on? Most houses we work on are 25,000 square feet or more, but we don’t have a limit.
What are some projects you’ll be taking on this month? Visit our Parade of Homes house in River Ridge at the end of the month. It’s open to the public!
