Valentine’s Dinner for the Family

In a peaceful and serene area of Thibodaux, on a tranquil pond, rests the home of Quinn and Renee Strander. The southern traditional home welcomes you in with warm tones and an open floor plan, perfect for entertaining. 

After taking their time to consider everything they might wish for in their new living space, the couple and their children moved into their home in November 2018. “With an idea of what we wanted, we worked with Mike Bourgeois for a year to draw our custom plan,” shared Renee. “After getting bids from several contractors, we went with Pelican Builders. The house took almost a year and a half to build, but Pelican and their then designer Gretchen Talbot were great to work with!”

The five bedroom, four bath custom home features brick flooring throughout the entire first floor, exposed wood beams, a large laundry room with heated floors, a stunning back patio and pool area overlooking the pond and a detached sports room for entertaining. 



The couple’s love for horseracing can be found in the details around the home. A large commissioned portrait in the entryway features several horses that are important to Quinn, all racing at Churchill Downs. Subtle touches from Renee’s family also find their place in the home, including a picture of Rienzi Plantation from her grandmother and a set of dishes for entertaining from her other grandmother. The exterior sports room includes wall to wall televisions for watching sporting events, surrounded by framed saddle cloths from Quinn’s horses. 

Whether the couple is sharing a quiet breakfast in the nook in front of the fireplace or opening their home up to watch the next exciting race, it’s the little details throughout the space that welcome you home. POV
