The beautiful forever home of the Lasserre family welcomes you with warmth and kindness. The stunning four bedroom, three bath home is a new construction, completed in 2023. The family, Kerry and Katie, along with their three sons Kristian, Kollin, and Kameron, moved in during June 2023. 

The home is DSLD Homes and is located in Settlement at Live Oak Subdivision in Thibodaux. The build was completed with assistance from Jacob Boudreaux, Building Contractor; and Elizabeth Crochet, Builder Sales Representative for DSLD Homes. Mia Estevans with American South Mortgage Lending and Michele Palmer with 1 Percent Lists United were instrumental in the process as well. 

The open floor plan allows for lots of natural light, and a bright, open, and crisp feel. Katie is masterful when it comes to decorating the home and Kerry is masterful in the DIY projects she might throw his way. 

“I absolutely love the brightness of my home! From the white floors to all the natural lighting from the large windows and open concept,” shared Katie. “My kitchen is the heart of our home. I love to cook and entertain, so having a large area to prep and serve food is ideal. I love my white, clean kitchen and coffee bar! I love to swap out seasonal decor and treats often to keep it fun! My white cabinets and light marble countertops are so aesthetically pleasing to my eye.”

“When we were searching for furniture for our home, I found our television console first and fell in love with it immediately. I loved the massiveness of the piece and the honeycomb pattern was just so unique,” explains Katie. “I went home and immediately googled the meaning behind a honeycomb pattern and many things I found said that honeycomb symbolized ‘new beginnings and building for the future.’ This meaning really hit home for me, as we consider this home our forever  home. We feel that it is a new beginning for our family, as we move into a new phase of parenting adult children and one day welcoming grandchildren in this home. You can see many touches of honeycomb pattern throughout the home, including the kitchen backsplash, vases, wine rack, canisters, pots, and other decor.”

“My husband, Kerry, is such an amazing DIY-er!” Katie shared. “He has designed and built many things in our home, including my stove cover in the kitchen, the frame around our television in our master bedroom, and the amazing boot bench near our garage entrance. I dream up ideas and he executes them without complaint! I am so thankful!”

Katie and Kerry also love shopping locally. Some of the local companies used in designing and decorating our home so far include: Peace Candle Co.: owner- Jonathan and Kristopher Price, Berwick, LA; Erica’s Bowtique, LLC.: Owner- Erica Adams, Thibodaux; Parish Construction, LLC: Owner- Jessie Collins, Thibodaux.
