The Bayou State Homes modular properties include a wood-frame or on-slab foundation, R-13 batten wall insulation, vinyl siding insulation, and R-30 fiberglass blown attic insulation. 

To further batten down the hatches, all homes include Windstorm sheathing on the exterior, a Tyvex moisture wrap, and finally, an insulation board.   

Inside your home is hand-built custom kitchen cabinetry, plastic laminate counters, energy-efficient heating and cooling with a SEER rating of at least 14, and pre-completed plumbing and electricity.


Louisiana is one of the most beautiful states in the country. If you love southern hospitality, this could be where you should settle down and establish roots.
