    • Manuel Builders is a team of over 45 building and interior consultants, architects, project managers, etc. focused on providing their “family of homeowners” with an excellent home building experience.  Their two specialties are designing and building customized homes on personally owned property and developing entire communities throughout their building region.  Their turn-key process brings excellence and ease to a homebuilder’s experience.


      Greg Manuel, owner of Manuel Builders, has been building homes in South Louisiana for over half a century.   Founded in 1963 by his father Sylvan Manuel, Greg began working in various phases of the construction process at the age of thirteen. Greg joined full time in the mid-1970s after flying sorties in Vietnam, working as a bush pilot in Canada, and flying helicopters offshore. After Sylvan left the business in 1986, Greg decided to expand the plan inventory and geographic coverage. It was also at this time that he changed the name to Manuel Builders. The ensuing years were a tremendous time of growth for both the Acadiana area and Manuel Builders. By the early 2000s, Manuel Builders had expanded into sixteen parishes and had begun to develop lots for its own inventory in Ascension Parish.


      Growth is something Manuel Builders always strives for and they look forward to a bright future in homebuilding. With their extensive history and experience, Manuel Builders understands that building a home is one of the most important decisions a person can make in their lifetime.  They believe that, as their motto states, “doing it right still matters”.  For more information visit or call one of the MB team at (337) 981-5315.

    • With over 20 years of hands-on experience, the Shivers brothers are the most trusted choice in affordable, quality construction. Stephen Jr. and Bailey Shivers were literally born into the business. The boys, sons of prominent builders and developers Stephen Sr. and Lissa Shivers, spent their summers working with their father’s subcontractors learning the ins and outs of building homes.

      After attending Ole Miss, the brothers took on key roles in the Shivers family businesses. Both of the brothers possess the necessary skills and knowledge needed to do the best job possible. Stephen Jr.’s eye for all of the unique details that make up a one of a kind home and Bailey’s passion for innovative design and development, combine to deliver outstanding quality and professional integrity. This is the true mark of all of the construction by the Shivers family.

      The Shivers brothers fully understand the needs and desires of their clients. They are prepared to help with the selling of an existing property and ease the stress that comes with making a transition from an old home to a dream home.

      Bailey, his wife Chrysti, and their three boys have lived in the heart of the community where Bailey has constructed homes for over a decade. After working to rebuild the Mississippi Gulf Coast following Katrina and the BP oil spill, Stephen Jr. and his wife Laurie, along with their three children, joined the rest of the family in Lafayette in 2011. Understanding that the heart of Cajun Country would also serve as the heart of Shivers Homes, they move forward as the next generation of quality home construction and the continuation of a family legacy.

      Together, they are the owners of Shivers Brothers Construction, LLC, Shivers Brothers of Louisiana, LLC and Shivers Properties of MS, LLC, proudly serving the people of Acadiana, Shreveport, LA, the Gulf Coast of MS and now Lake Charles!
