About Us

We are a locally owned and operated General Contractor specializing in custom home building, major residential renovations, additions and light commercial projects. We also offer Design/Build services to our clients seeking Architectural and Engineering assistance. The majority of our work takes place in Orleans and Jefferson Parish.

We self perform the majority of our carpentry and painting work and only hire closely knit, highly skilled subcontractors for the rest. We pride ourselves on working seamlessly and efficiently with trade professionals and suppliers as a team to oversee every detail—anticipating challenges, providing solutions, and ensuring our client’s complete satisfaction.

Since 2002, we have completed nearly 150 successful projects and have been recognized for our performance in the media on several occasions. We were featured on six different episodes of “This Old House” in 2008 and have been written up in several publications including the Times Picayune, Preservation in Print, Gambit, Southern Living, Inside New Orleans and Professional Remodeler. We received four different preservation awards along with several nominations from the Historic District Landmarks Commission for our outstanding historic preservation work. In 2011 one of our Uptown projects made the cover of Professional Remodeler Magazine.

Owner Biography

The company was founded in 2002 by its President, Larry Schneider. Larry was born and raised in Old Metairie and still resides there with his wife and two daughters. He attended Tulane University on a Baseball scholarship and served as the Team’s Captain for 3 years. He graduated in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science in Management with a concentration in Finance. After a 3 year stint as a Commercial Banker and Stockbroker, Larry decided to switch careers and was hired by a large New Orleans based General Contractor where he was first trained as a project manager and then was put in charge of several multi-million dollar commercial construction projects. Larry used his “Big Company” knowledge and skills to start his own business and applies them to running Schneider’s smaller projects.
