Our Latest Projects

From Our Clients

“Manchac Homes has truly created the ultimate custom home building process!  We chose Manchac Homes after meeting Russell and viewing his previous work and noticing his attention to detail — we immediately knew we had to experience that for our own dream home!  With the unique streamlined process, we were able to overcome many challenges being faced by others, when it came to supply chain issues or huge price inflations. The level of detail, care and love that has gone into this house has really exceeded our expectations and made this experience truly one to remember.”

JD & Brittney Fusilier

“Completely renovating our house was no small task. Not only did Russell, Anne and Chris listen to our vision down to the last detail, they enhanced it beyond words, and made our dream home come to life before our very eyes. Professionals in business and friends through the process before, during and after. Thanks, team, for turning our dreams into a reality.”

Jason & Jen Borne

“We were completely satisfied with the total experience.  Russell provided invaluable insights and recommendations that ultimately improved our original design.  Russell brought a level of pride in his work and attention to detail that was simply remarkable. The result was an absolutely beautiful home and two very happy clients!”

Lee & Renee Anderson

“After interviewing many contractors, I decided my choice would be Russell with Manchac Homes. He brought interest, excitement and a true passion for his craft to the table.  He was kind, patient and always professional. I quickly learned that Russell was a man I could trust. He taught me about all of the difference phases of the construction process.  He was on site daily and the door to communication was always open. I watched him work with his subcontractors and established a rapport with each to insure the job was completed to my exact standards. He helped me with the design of the house from floor to ceiling, landscape to pool and beyond.  His passion is the reason my home has that “wow” factor that so many homeowners crave. I am so grateful every day that I chose Russell as my contractor!”

Elizabeth O'Keefe

“We decided to use Manchac Homes to build our custom home because of the passion Russell showed in wanting to make our dream home become a reality.  After a few conversations with Russell, it was obvious he truly cared about attention to detail and to ensure nothing was overlooked or omitted. These qualities, never faltered throughout the building process.  When Manchac Homes says “Quality Construction with Personalized Service” they mean it. We truly feel we found the best builder in Baton Rouge and have recommended Manchac Homes to family and friends. If we build again, with no questions, our builder would be Manchac Homes.”
