As a custom home builder for over 20 years, we have completed over 100 custom homes and home renovations in Baton Rouge. Owner Drew Gasser loves building custom homes for empty nesters, growing families, and first-time home builders. The company’s success lies in Drew’s motto: LISTEN BETTER, PLAN BETTER, BUILD BETTER.  When you do these three simple things, you deliver a truly custom home to delighted homeowners.  Drew works closely with you from the initial meeting listening to your vision, needs, and desires, to crafting and building with attention to detail in mind, until handing over the keys to your completed home.

Building Unforgettable Family Memories

The memories we make at home, from watching the kids growing up to entertaining family and friends, are what make our home the center of our lives. We say that it’s the family memories and people that make a home, not the things in it.  Drew knows how powerful the family memories made at home are, and he is committed to every aspect of the custom home building process.   When we at Thomas Building Company build a custom home, we pour our hearts and souls into creating memorable and inviting spaces. From the family dinners in your dream kitchen or the family movie night in your home theater, the unforgettable memories we make at home stay with us for a lifetime.
