We (Brandon and Cherith) are Baton Rouge natives and have been in business for the last 15+ years. We both graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University, and after college, Brandon opened his own real estate company learning the ins and outs of the Baton Rouge real estate market. In 2007 Brandon started his own construction business and we have since grown into home building, interior design, and a real estate team. Your home is a huge part of your life and we want to guide you in the process.
In terms of home building, no two projects are the same and Brandon spends time onsite daily, to make sure all aspects of the process run smoothly. Brandon’s hands-on approach and dedication to excellence and quality is what has distinguished his custom homes. Craft Homes has acquired a long list of satisfied customers and through loyal clients and word of mouth and is quickly becoming one of South Baton Rouge’s most desired contractors.
Being a builder’s wife has also meant we have lived in almost as many homes as we’ve built! I personally love open and clean spaces, focusing on several key pieces of quality furniture, all while expressing your own personality in a unique and creative way. I like to build a more neutral home with natural elements (i.e., neutral wall colors, wood floors, wood beams etc.) The reason for this, is it helps YOU have flexibility in your design (and the occasional re-design). A blank canvas can go from Boho to traditional to modern with ease.
I remember a time that a friend of mine came over. She came into my home after a hectic day with her kids and sat down at my kitchen island and suddenly everything changed. She went from looking tired to inspired. The days troubles fell away from her face and she smiled. “Cherith. I don’t know what you do, but every time I come to your house I just feel at PEACE. I wish my home felt like this.” This is a true story, and one that happens more often than not. I do love having a beautiful home, but more importantly I want a home that I feel confident bringing people into, and a home that inspires peace and community. THIS CAN BE YOUR HOME TOO! It’s not about “looking like Cherith” but presenting your personality in a way that still brings peace and having quality furnishings that are well designed so that you LOVE bringing people into your home.
We are active members of Bethany Church. We have three amazing, sassy, and independent daughters, and we are also foster parents. In our spare time, Brandon loves to cook for our family and friends, and I love to spend time at our family farm.
