We are still experiencing a lack of phone service at our Design Center in Ponchatoula. Although our phone lines are set to roll over to a line that can be answered, high call volume is not allowing all calls to come through.
If you are not having success getting through to our office, please reach out to us via Facebook Messenger. We hope to have this resolved as soon as possible.

09/09/2021

After a tumultuous two weeks for our friends, families and employees, we are ready to reopen our doors to serve our current and future customers.

Post Hurricane Ida update:

1. For all south shore employees who we have not connected with, if you’re seeing this, please check in with your team leaders and let them know what help you may need and if you are safe.
2. Customers with homes currently under construction, if you have received damage to your home due to the storm and have reached your home before we have, please start the builders risk insurance process. You will hear from your construction team over the next few days but please do not hesitate to document the damage and begin that process.
3. Our offices will remain closed for the time being. If you had a previously scheduled pre-construction meeting, someone from our offices will be in touch with you soon to discuss our eventual reopening and rescheduling.
4. To all of our former customers who received damage from the storm and have reached out to their builders, while we would truly like to be able to assist you in the repair process, we simply do not have the resources to help facilitate these requests at this time. Please contact your homeowners insurance company and begin that process.

We will reopen soon, but in the meantime please continue to pray for yours and our friends, family and employees who were severely impacted with this storm.

Thank you and God bless.

08/28/2021

We will be closing our sales office at noon today so our employees can get home safely and prepare for the inclement weather approaching.
We will update this page for our reopening.

Please stay prepared and stay safe.

We love our builder Andre'. Personable. Professional, walks us through every step, answers ever call and our tons of questions. Thank you Andre for everything! Cindy & Kenny
Do you guys have plans that are up to 40 feet wide for narrow lots? With 3, possibly 4 bedrooms?
Many thanks to Brandi for putting up with us and for all of the time she spent helping us plan the building of our home !! I’m quite sure that we gave her a few headaches along the way. She was always patient with us and our indecisiveness and was just all around awesome !! ❀️
Beware of this builder. We have filed complaints with the Louisiana Homebuileders Assn, the Better Business Bureau, the city of Kenner Building and ordances deptartment, and we are pursuing legal remedies. They have deplorable business practices. Happy to provide details, photos, etc. Email me with any questions at [email protected]
Come and see my home before you choose this builder. I had 4 different construction managers, the walls bow, the windows are slanted and uneven, the driveway is defective, the wood they used on my porch is splitting and cracking and yet they won't come out and fix it. Hiding behind the "sale" of Cretin to Townsend, but guess what, they still use Cretin in the name. The design team put cabinets in my kitchen that you couldn't put a silverware tray in, no wider than 10 inches and said it was my fault that I didn't know they were that way and should have said something. They charged me to replace them and when I pitched a fit, they offered to pay for half. I'm not a designer and couldn't tell by the plans, what size drawers they were putting in the kitchen. They put soaker tubs that they showed me a 1X1 inch picture of that should have a step in front of it and again said it was my fault. No room for a step in the bathroom. It's difficult and I think dangerous to get in and out of these tubs. So many people said things like this to me but because it was cheaper, I went with it. I am now going to have to replace my driveway because of the through and through cracks that happened at less than a year. I will take pictures and post them. These are my opinions and I can show you the actual issues if you want to see them. Don't let them tell you it's a new company, most of the same people are there and agree Townsend should have honored the warranty. Message me...
This is another photo of the Hickory stone fill shower where the color did not mix evenly.
If you are getting a stone filled shower, I suggest not picking the Hickory. The color does not mix evenly and it gives a blotchy look.
Got our shutters in today
Our family is so grateful and beyond blessed to have worked with CTH. From the moment we walked into Brandy's office two years ago, we felt as though we were in good hands. Brandy was very personable and helpful throughout the whole process. We miss her:0) She listened to all of our thoughts and wants and needs, without ever pressuring us for unnecessary "upgrades." We lost out home to the flood of 2016. Our house was condemned by our parish and eventually torn down. We lived in a trailer for a little over a year. CTH was very eager to work with the SBA and bent over backwards to accommodate us. Don was so helpful and gave great suggestions as to how to deal with the SBA on our end. On his end, he was very knowledgeable and took care of business. Once the building phase started, Keith was a ROCK STAR! He had workers here every single day, and let me just say, these workers knew how to work! I'm talking from the sun up to sun down, and a little after. We were astounded. Keith was here every single day making sure everything was perfect. If it wasn't up to standards, it was quickly fixed without delay. Throughout this whole process, Keith made us feel like we were his ONLY priority, even though we knew he had other homeowners. We have been in our house a little over a week and everything is perfect! Thank you CTH for bringing us home! God bless you all. The Labauve Family of Denham Springs
We just moved in and are in love with our new home! Thanks Townsend and Chase Dockery for the beautiful home and making our dreams come true!
This is long overdue... We love Townsend, our new house...and our supervisor Ron Fitch ... Our house was custom... they listened to every detail...and executed exactly like I imagined.. This was my 3rd new construction...and going for #4 in a few years...and I wouldn't want any other builder than Townsend... ! I know everyone will think that their Townsend house is the most beautiful...but ours truly is the bomb! β™₯
Our home was just completed in Bourg. We love it! ❀️
