Our Story

Our Story

We were both raised in Denham Springs, Louisiana. We had been living in California for a few years where we were hoping for anything more than a sprinkle. On the opposite side of the spectrum, our families were praying for the rain to stop. After the devastation of the 2016 flood, we were left in utter shock about what our families had been through. In the summer of 2017, we moved back to Louisiana to create DC HOMES. This company was created out of hope- we had hope that we could help take the wreckage that was left here after the 2016 flood and give people a second chance to make what used to be their home, their home once more.
